Xtrap Dance Crew

This is the Japanese dance troupe Xtrap Dance Crew. Xtrap’s style of dance is known as finger tutting. According to HipHopArea.com, “Tutting is the name given to a contemporary abstract interpretive dance style that exploits the body’s ability to create geometric positions and movements.” In other words, Xtrap’s hand choreography manages to accomplish on a micro scale what Busby Berkeley created on a macro scale. I never would have believed these effects could be created using just 30 fingers!

I’m really impressed with how precise and coordinated the dancers’ movements are. I’ll bet they’re excellent typists!

What’s that? You want to try it yourself? You’re in luck!

  2. Well I can honestly declare that I have never seen anything at all like this. It’s fascinating and pretty mesmerising. I don’t have the coordination or grace for dance choreography for sure but I am very doubtful that I have the coordination required for even making my fingers danced.

  3. This is so cool! I couldn’t do that as I have unfortunately no rythme at all. Even with my fingers.

  4. I discovered an amazing Japanese video game that teaches typing by using the correct repeat of the letters provided to you to shoot at attacking zombies! Very “inspiring” to get it right! Maybe that’s also a skill builder here? I love that you find these unique and often mesmerizing things in the world!
