The Beat from Troy Music Hall #57, Move!
We Probably Aren’t Moving Enough
You don’t want to go to the gym (we don’t blame you), and all the trails you were hiking are now snow-covered and icy. It’s cold out, your couch is comfy, and Bridgerton is on Netflix. It’s hard to find the motivation to mask up and go out.
This week, we dedicated our videos to inspire you to move! Excavate that treadmill that has slowly become a gathering place for your laundry, grab your kid’s sled and hurl yourself down a hill (we take no responsibility for the outcome), or boogie to the smooth 80’s sound of an Olivia Newton-John classic.
A New Way to Use the Treadmill
OK Go, “Here It Goes Again”
OK Go is a musical group that is well known for its innovative and creative videos. Click here to check out their body of work on their YouTube channel. We featured “Upside Down and Inside Out” in a former issue of The Beat, and we highly recommend viewing that again, and watch their “I Won’t Let You Down” video.
Olivia Newton-John, “Physical” (Official Video)
Honestly, this is one of the first videos we thought of for this week’s edition. Ummm….. we didn’t remember it being so… so… so very, weirdly, and hilariously unsexy. Do you think that is by design?
Food, Glorious Food, the Reason we need to Move!
Jacques Pepin and Julia Child are a delight! Watch them create three delicious desserts. They will walk you through how to make Strawberries Sabayon, Gâteau de Crêpes, and a classic Crêpes Suzette.
A husband tries to help his wife go sledding, and hilarity ensues!
No Corny Inspirational Speeches here,
Just Withering Judgement
Welcome to Saturday Night Live’s version of Peloton, a popular exercise bike that promises to bring a “boutique exercise experience” into your home. SNL takes a different approach from the usual cheerleading approach of leading an exercise class. They call it Pelotaunt.
Dance Like No One’s Watching
Jisoo Yu & David Hart – “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire
Just move! It doesn’t matter how good you are, (though these two are amazing!) just let the music move you. Karen, our Director of Marketing, has a rule: Never, NEVER, make fun of anyone dancing. The fact that someone chooses to groove in public always, ALWAYS, deserves respect.
Jisoo and David are part of the Urban Dance Crew at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Their motto? “We don’t care about being the best — we care about being better than the day before.”
