My favorite part in Unit 337 starts at 3:30. It is the part where you can kind of already see that there is in fact a light at the end of the tunnel. Yes, it is a cliche but it is what it is.
Let me explain.
Dancers are artists, but they don’t get that much credit, they don’t get paid a lot either. So there are some dancers who choose not to pursue it, instead they go to work at some fancy office to make ends meet. Occasionally, they will go back to studios, move to a song or two, and then feel like they never really stopped. But then they’ll go home, sleep, and prepare for another day just to get stuck in a cubicle, working at something they do not feel passionate about. At this point, you just have to see that light, the light that will make you feel that you can in fact do something that you’re good at, that you’re interested in.
This piece that Anthony Lee choreographed is that light. It lets you know that you don’t have to be the person who lives in a world where the society dictates what needs to be done. You don’t have to wear a coat everyday. You can wear your low-waist pants because it’s comfortable. You can dance if you want to. Nobody should stop you from doing the things that you know you are capable of doing.
My dad used to say that you’ll know a rich man when you see one. They’re not wearing the fanciest clothes nor are they driving the fanciest cars. They are wearing the brightest smiles. Happy people are rich people.
And that look on Anthony Lee’s face while dancing, surrounded by his closest homies… I can totally say that this guy is one of the richest men on the planet. - M
You cannot put ideas in my head and not make it happen. It has to happen. This #MANBAND has to happen. Although personally, #MOREMEN appeals to me more. I said that out loud and that didn’t sound right at all.
PS: Dear fans, we’re not thanking Danielle Lee enough so thank you Danielle and keep the videos coming :)
