Dancing in Antwerp's Train Station

 
I have a confession to make. Ms. Sandwalk and I, along with four other couples we've known for many years, are learning how to do ballroom line dances. It's so much fun.

Perhaps that's why this video makes me smile. It's a promotion by a Belgian TV show that's looking for a "Maria" to play the lead in "The Sound of Music." I hope my daughter—who lives in Belgium— never hears about it 'cause she already knows all the words to every song in the musical.



UPDATE: Some people may not know about the T-Mobile add in the Liverpool Street Station in London [T-Mobile Dance].


P.S. My dancing group is almost as good as these guys. Maybe we should do a performance in Union Station in downtown Toronto?

  2. That's Belgians, the most humourless and staid of all Europeans?
    Even more so than us Norwegians!

    Great way to liven up a dull winter's day.

  4. Staid? A quarter of the worlds beer, Manakin Piss, and a classic hit like "Pump up the Jam". Maybe it's me but when I think of Staid I think of the people of Connecticut.

  5. @ shonny: in real life there is no such thing as a "Belgian". There is a flemish and a walloon people.

    But I invite you to have a drink with me if you ever come to Ghent! Preferably during the "Gentse Feesten" - festival (http://www.gentsefeesten.be/eCache/DEF/59.html)
    Maybe that might change your mind...
