High Energy, Rhythmic, Creative and Educational - Pure Brilliance!
19 September 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

"It's All About Dancing: A Jamaican Dance-U-Mentary" is a brilliant work of art. The director has created a masterpiece (and to the best of my knowledge), has produced the first visual documentation on the history and importance of dancehall music and creative expression.

This instructional and informational video takes you straight to the yards of Jamaica and educates you on the history of dancehall music, the artists who initiated the movement, the legacy of dance creators, and provides easy to follow dance instructions. This high energy and rhythmic video is an educational addition to my collection in which I highly recommend if you are even remotely interested in the culture.

With cutting edge dance moves; up close interviews with Reggae superstars; and outtakes with the hottest dancehall crews on the island

  • this video is no doubt one of the greatest invitations into one


fascinating aspect of Jamaican culture.
