How long song dance

Charlie Puth Just Wanted To ‘Dance Like An Idiot’ For New ‘How Long’ Video | News

Charlie Puth’s new video for his funky hit-in-the-making “How Long” takes the adage “Dance like nobody’s watching” to crazy new heights. Literally.

In the Emil Nava-directed video, released on Thursday (October 19), Puth grooves down the sidewalk, jigs in a lobby, struts up the side of a building, and shows off his fancy footwork in mid-air, La La Land-style. It’s a slick, smiley, frivolous side of Puth we haven’t seen before in his music videos, and according to him, it’s something he decided to do so he could be vulnerable and, well, “dance like an idiot.”

Speaking to MTV News over the phone, Puth explained what it was like getting out of his comfort zone and into his dancing shoes (and a very tight harness).

MTV News: Congrats on the release! How does it feel to have the video out there in the world?

Charlie Puth: It feels good. It’s definitely a different video. I’m trying to finish up my album, so I haven’t been able to see reactions yet, but I did check the YouTube comments, which is something I’ve been doing since, like, 2008. I saw pretty positive stuff, so that’s good.

MTV: What was your favorite comment?

Puth: I think someone sarcastically asking me if I could teach them my very, very complicated dance moves. Because clearly I’m not a dancer, as everyone figured out very quickly. But I thought it was pretty cheeky.

MTV: As you said, this is something pretty different for you. We haven’t really seen you dance before. What made you want to do that for this video?

Puth: Because I can’t dance! I’m very self-deprecating; I’ve been making fun of myself since the day I was born. If I did one more video where I was making out with a girl, I was going to throw up. I was so sick of that, so I decided to do something completely different. The song, the lyrics — it’s kind of part two of “Attention,” where there’s a somber tone to it but a happy beat. And I don’t really know why I’m dancing to this song. I don’t know why I’m flying in the air. I just wanted to do something random. There’s really no reason. Everyone’s going to come up with all these theories, like, “Oh, he’s dancing to celebrate that he’s free.” No. I just wanted to dance like an idiot.


MTV: Yeah, I love that the whole time, you’re smiling and you look so happy and amused. It’s an interesting juxtaposition, because the song is all about apologizing for cheating on this girl.

Puth: We filmed the video from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., so I think I was just smiling because I was going a little crazy. I had this harness on and I was flying in the air in downtown L.A., and I was smiling because I was thinking to myself, “Wow, I can’t believe I’m actually doing this.”

MTV: Were your moves choreographed at all?

Puth: Nope! Made them up on the spot, which is honestly not that impressive.

MTV: How did it feel to get out of your comfort zone and dance on camera? Were you nervous or insecure at all?

Puth: A little bit at first, because I always forget how many people are watching me when I’m filming. When I was thinking of this video concept in my head, I was like, “I’m going to be in my own little world, it’s going to be morning, there’s going to be no one around.” Then I forgot about the crew of 80 people that was on the video set.

MTV: If you had to rate your moves on a scale from one to ten, where do you think you fall?

Puth: Probably a two. The hilarious answer would be a one or a zero, but I give myself the two because I made the college try. I call them wedding dance moves. Maybe I will make a tutorial on the Charlie Puth wedding dance moves, but all it is is a video full of moves that white people would do at weddings.

MTV: When you’re dancing solo around the lobby of that building, I got major Fatboy Slim vibes. You know that “Weapon of Choice” video where Christopher Walken’s dancing around the hotel?

Puth: Yeah, that was definitely a reference. That’s one of my all-time favorite videos.

MTV: So you were aiming for that?

Puth: I think so, but less intense. Not as many backflips.


MTV: It’s a really surprising moment when the first chorus kicks in and you start walking up the wall of this building. How did you make that happen?

Puth: We had a stunt team there who works with Tom Cruise and all these actors when they’re in the movies. I had this tight harness — it was so tight, I couldn’t breathe sometimes. They just said I had to get used to it. I pulled my pants down in front of everybody and put this harness on. It was so painful, and I literally had to walk up the wall vertically at 4:00 in the morning having not slept at all. It was a really tough day, but it looks natural, so that’s good.

MTV: Yeah, it looked great. What about the scene where you’re flying — were there any special effects there?

Puth: No effects. It was literally just a harness and me clenching onto my private area. That was at 6:00 in the morning, and the police were yelling at us because we were throwing haze in the middle of the street, and cars were going by when they weren’t supposed to. It was kind of intense, and I’m in the air and you see me smiling because I’m like, “Why did I do this?”

MTV: When did the concept for the video come to you? Is that the type of thing that you’re ever thinking about while you’re making a song?

Puth: I think it was when I started laying down the vocals, I thought to myself what the video would be like. I just wanted to be a little vulnerable for this video, and I said that word over and over again in my head. What’s vulnerable? Well, doing something that people feel, which is dance, and dancing very poorly. .. but on purpose. And it’s literally how it all came together: “For this video, I will dance in downtown L.A. like an idiot. In a suit. And that’s going to be the video. There’s going to be no explanation as to why I’m doing it.”

MTV: You said that “How Long” is the second part of “Attention.” Was it supposed to pick up that same night as the “Attention” video, after you get into a fight?

Puth: Actually, yes. Correct. You’re very observational. I guess it being part two, I would’ve left that house in “Attention” and threw a suit on. Took off my casual party clothes and put on a sweaty old suit and then danced in downtown L.A. So there is truth to that.

MTV: Will there be a part three of that saga?

Puth: No, I think I’m ready to share a new story.

MTV: There’s one scene where you’re looking at this painting of a woman whose eyes are covered, and she’s engulfed in flames. What is that scene all about to you?

Puth: That’s the girl! The real girl. The girl that I didn’t want in the video or portrayed in the video, but I just wanted a little bit of symbolism there.

MTV: Are you ready for fans to start theorizing about who it is?

Puth: Well, I guess I asked for it. It would be weird if I left that part out of the story. That said, “Attention” and this song go hand in hand. And, you know, I guess you can see it. You can see the painting.

You know that moment during a wedding reception when the bandleader or DJ asks all couples who have been married (or dating) for a certain number of years to hit the dance floor? That's called the anniversary dance, and it's one of the sweetest traditions around. Usually, once all the couples start dancing, the DJ will ask those who've been together for five years or less to leave the dance floor first, then couples of 10 years or less, and so on, until the longest-wed couple is left dancing with the newlyweds.

As the two embark on the first day of their marriage, many guests have been together for 20, 30, and even 40 years or more, and that's definitely something worth celebrating! If you want to include this lovely custom during your reception, you should pick the song you want to play for that moment in advance.

Choose an anniversary dance song based on the age group of your guests. A classic by The Beatles or Frank Sinatra is optimal if you have lots of grandparents, aunts, and uncles in attendance; if your crowd is younger, a modern indie love song makes a great choice.

Any tune with a message of everlasting love is a good selection. We're big fans of Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years" and Billie Holiday's "As Time Goes By. " Even better? Songs that look forward to even more years of happiness, like Al Green's "Let's Stay Together." Chances are, you've already considered one of these for your first dance song, so why not get a chance to play two songs that speak to you?

Scroll through our 65 favorite anniversary dance songs and get ready for the emotional moment when all those happy couples hit the dance floor.

90,000 12 life hacks, to quickly learn how to dance from Mamita Dance

Psychologist, Lecturer Salsa

on At the start, you always want to get a quick result. When it doesn't happen, the hypothesis arises that everything takes time. After a conditionally acceptable time, humility comes to mastering pair dances, which, perhaps, is not given, and I will just do what I learned somehow.

This is the most common story of those who believe that the mere act of attending a pair dance class is enough to learn how to dance.
Absolutely not. If you want to really dance well, you have to make an effort outside of the dance class. A good teacher will definitely be needed, but the initiative should be on your side.

1. Listen to music

The most common and accessible advice that is given already in the first lessons. And it definitely works. Music creates a certain atmosphere of the dance and intuitively you want to move to it. It doesn't matter where you listen to music - in the car, on headphones while walking or doing household chores.

An addition that will help you dance better is your active participation in the music. Sing along, dance or simply beat musical accents with any free parts of the body. In the subway, for example, it is enough to tap out bright moments with your fingers, in the car to sing along with sounds, and at home you can jump for pleasure.

2. Watch videos of good dancers

It's complicated, but also obvious. It’s more difficult, because without recommendations from more experienced dancers, unfortunately, it’s not so easy to find a good quality video on the net (I mean not the resolution quality, but the content itself).

Meaningful video viewing is about building an understanding of HOW dancers make a particular impression on a partner or viewer. Technology is at the heart of everything. Understanding how the pros do it is a big step forward.

It is important to distinguish a show from a disco dance, a staged performance from an improvisation, a stylized dance from an authentic one, etc. Ask for recommendations and dance teachers will always throw off a couple of videos of worthy landmarks.

3. Dance in salsatecas/milongas/discotheques

A very delicate moment when it is worth coming to the first party. From a technical point of view, most students in 1-3 months have a sufficient set of figures and techniques to come and dance calmly. Psychologically, the same moment can be stretched out for an indefinite time. After all, it is imperative to “not lose face”, “learn more figures” and be sure what to do in case “there is an unfamiliar movement”.

In fact, the partygoers don't really care (except for a small layer of non-professional teachers who want to help inexperienced dancers by treating them as customers in the future). It is important to come and try dancing after a month of classes. You can only with friends or guys from your group. This will be enough to feel the adrenaline and inspiration from the dance.

4. Dance with partners or partners not of your level

The conventional wisdom that you need to practice in groups of your level does not withstand the test of experience. Perhaps now your eyes widened in surprise, and you want to meaningfully read the phrase again. Yes, you saw everything correctly: when you dance with a partner of your level, you don’t grow anywhere.

It's important to understand that not only does it work one way and you have to dance with cooler dancers, but it works even more effectively the other way. It is no coincidence that teaching pair dances dramatically raises the level of the teacher himself. You have an endless stream of very beginner dancers.

How it works. A more experienced partner needs to be "stretched". It's easy and obvious. With beginners, you need to take more initiative on yourself, see the general pattern of the dance more widely, turn on and insure more, try to be an example and be more careful. The quality of interaction begins to grow significantly. And wonderful partners too.

Dancing with partners of your level doesn't make you grow. Dance with both beginners and more advanced dancers

5. Learn to dance for a partner and for a partner

Turks and Argentines are one of the best partners in the world. In Russia, partners are highly valued. Why? The answer is simple. In Argentina and Turkey, it is not questionable for men to ask another man to lead in one piece or another and give feedback on the quality of the lead. For them, it will be a great shame to hear moralizing from a partner, or even more so to be known in the community as an insecure partner.

In Russia, due to the constant, often far-fetched, opinion that there are more women in pair dances, partners calmly get up and study their partner's part. Such partners then grow into very cool dancers and teachers. In no case do this at parties, only in class. Here we are talking only about the learning strategy. At parties, be yourself.

6. Do not memorize the links

Always try to look deeper and understand the through principle and idea of ​​movement. Understanding what and how is done will make it possible to independently generate any sequences and chips.

Human memory is limited and there will always be a moment when something will escape and your repertoire will be limited by the size of RAM.

In Argentine tango, for example, there are seven levels of movement construction that, when mastered, will allow you to make millions of combinations. And how many dance sequences can you really remember? In rueda, more than 150 figures dance in a rare circle. It's hard to keep more in mind.

7. Develop your body

Many years of experience in teaching couple dance shows that as soon as everyone pairs up in a class, any progress in individual style ends. But it is the individual style that distinguishes everyone at the disco: partners change, and style is always with you.

The body as the main instrument of dance must be very plastic, responsive and emotional. Surprisingly, not all pair dance schools have a general physical warm-up. It is vital to tune the body and understand how it works.

You can always train extra and concentrate more on the basic steps, as their true value is as body work. The sequence of steps is, in fact, the simplest thing that can be in pair dancing. The quality of individual performance determines the craftsmanship.

8. Try on the images of inspiring dancers

A psychological life hack for those who have already mastered the steps, but still feel that there is not enough brightness and drive. Most are terribly afraid of being someone else's "clone". Here the action is the same as under the influence of hypnosis - the more you resist, the more you plunge into an altered state of consciousness.

With a high degree of probability, you are already dancing like someone else's "clone". A meaningful fitting of someone else's image is that you mentally take the image of the one who inspires you (inspiration is critical in this case) and "put on" yourself. Then you start dancing and trying to feel in general how it is to be able, for example, to be the best partner or the sexiest partner in a disco. This is much more difficult than it seems. But it works extremely efficiently.

9. Dance to offbeat music

Habitual rhythms keep you tight. Tango salon or speedy timba leave little room for experimentation and fantasy. Pattern dancing is always noticeable and is reserved for beginners.

The truly new is born outside of the usual. Look for places to experiment. If there is no place, organize self-training. The main thing is not to get carried away, because music determines the style. We bring something new to pair dances, rather than trying to change them.

Search, improvise, don't be afraid to go beyond, develop in different directions, be inspired by music atypical for the style

10. Try your hand at basic dance directions

dances exist according to their own non-choreographic laws.

This is the deepest delusion, which has turned into a ceiling for the qualitative development of partner dances. After all, all professional dancers, for example, in salsa or bachata, build their ideas on the basic choreographic principles.

Do not think that choreography is only applicable on stage. Any meaningful movement of the body can be choreographic. In general, try classical or modern choreography. Basically, hip-hop can work too.

11. Look for battle sensations

Pair dances return us to an active position of manifestation of our body. As in the days of our ancient ancestors, we impress the members of the opposite sex by how dexterous, hardy, sexy, etc. we are. Modern laws of the jungle in the entourage of big cities.

If you look around the dance floor, it becomes clear that the majority are clearly herbivores (not in the sense of vegetarians, but in relation to those around them). I am sure that predators are always more interesting in terms of the attractiveness of the image - try to find a counterbalance among herbivores, for example, a cat woman or a lion man.

The conversation is about an internal position, not about aggressiveness. Lability and lack of control are inherent in adolescents, and not in adult self-sufficient people.

Accordingly, even a training or friendly battle gives, on the one hand, practical skills - to make a bright sequence of movements, bring an idea to a climax, show a spectacular feature, on the other hand, develops the psychological basis of the dance - self-confidence, resistance to extraneous attention, self-control and self-control in complex elements.

12. Communicate with professionals

The environment shapes the internal position. Basically, real passionaries of the dance community are ready to openly talk, discuss and support the development of dance in every possible way. Universal principles and the ideas they articulate have a much longer and more practical perspective than meets the eye.

Accept that, for example, behind the words "listen to your partner" is not only a beautiful metaphor, but also a practical skill to literally listen to your partner. At the same time, always treat every thought, even the most respected teacher, as a private opinion.
