Emma: Dance the Raya Flab off!

Here's a fun way to sweat out the many days of Raya gorging! Have fun!

Hello gorgeous ladies! Time for an update on my segment! I’ve exhausted my search through the infamous YouTube and came across this routine. Fun fact #1 about me is I’m a HUGE fan of Ms Britney Spears. One of the reasons for this is that she’s a great performer and she always gets to perform some of the best dance routines from well-known choreographers like Wade Robson. JEALOUS much! Anyway, this dance routine is a simplified version of the actual dance routine of the pop princess’s top song ‘(I’m A) Slave for You”. If you all remember the awesomely choreographed dance video, you might also recall some of the parts of the video performed similar to the original one.


One of the reasons why I chose to write about this video as my first post is the simplicity of the supposedly intricate original choreography. I don’t know who these people are, but kudos to them for this video! Truth be told, I actually managed to perform this piece as exact as how they did (yeay me!). So, why don’t you give it a shot! It’s very short and simple! Grab you sister or bff to learn it with you and perform together! It’ll be fun! And of course, it is indeed an alternative to staying fit. Once you’ve managed to learn the entire routine, try performing it 4 rounds before taking a short break (2 minutes) and do another set of 4 rounds. It can also help increase your stamina and flexibility. But word of CAUTION: please stretch your body muscles before performing J
This video also highlights the phrase “everybody can dance”. To perform this routine, you don’t necessary have to be trained in ballet, gymnastics, or hip hop, or any other classes. Better yet, you don’t need any training of any sorts to perform this dance. I remember the many moments I had in which I almost gave up dancing or performing for the fun of it. I was so sad with myself not having any professional training ever that it made me feel very inferior towards those people who did. But then again, looking back, I remember pulling off some of the craziest dance moves that I thought I could never do! As time went by, I took on the rather positive perspective: Don’t bother about what other people say or think about you. You’re unique in your own way.
Below is the video of Ms Spears herself performing (I’m A) Slave for You. This is one of the Best (capital B, mind you) performances to this song she ever performed. The choreography in this video has a slightly faster pace. But, fret not! When the whole routine becomes automatic to you, add your own spice, flavour, and style to it. Then, you too can gradually increase the pace to match hers.

Key to performing any Britney routine: Hair, Hips, and Lips J
