"This Is Us" star Justin Hartley told Insider why he didn't participate when his cast performed the wobble dance between takes while filming Kate's (Chrissy Metz) wedding to Phillip (Chris Greere) in the show's final season.

"It was a second wedding. I am not a big fan of second weddings, and so I didn't want to participate," he joked about the video, which was posted to Instagram back in April while promoting Revel Spirits and their new agave spirit, Revel Avila Spritz. "I went, 'Screw it.' I was going to be on my phone, and that's it."

NBC's hit family drama, "This Is Us," followed the Pearson family, led by parents Rebecca and Jack Pearson (Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, respectively), for six seasons over many decades and across different time periods. The Pearsons' daughter, Kate, divorced her first husband Toby (Chris Sullivan) and during the show's finale season, viewers saw her marry a second time to Phillip.

In his life offscreen, Hartley's second marriage was to "Selling Sunset" star Chrishell Stause. He has since remarried to his former soap costar Sofia Pernas.

Susan Kelechi Watson — who played Beth, the wife of Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown), the family's adoptive son on the show — posted the video of the cast dancing to her Instagram account and it quickly went viral.

The video features nearly all of the cast members who had a scene during Kate's wedding episodes, including Metz, Brown, Moore, and Watson, doing the popular dance while in full wedding attire. However, Hartley, who played Kate's brother on the show, appears to be making phone calls while sitting on the couch in the foreground of the video.

When asked back in April, Hartley's costar Alexandra Breckenridge, (who played Kevin's wife Sophie) told Glamour she didn't know why Hartley chose not to dance. Watson also joked on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" in May that Hartley "knows his position.

Jokes aside, Hartley told Insider that he can do dances that are choreographed for him in scenes but prefers not to dance otherwise.

"It's like the only thing I'm insecure about is dancing," he continued. "For some reason, I always feel like I look like a jackass when I'm dancing."

The "Senior Year" actor remembered dancing in another unnamed video with the cast years before and when he lost the choreography and "just started doing my own thing" he felt ridiculous.

"I watched it back again, and I was like, 'Yeah, I look like a jackass. Why would I ever do that? Why would you ever do that?'" Hartley explained. "So I made a vow to myself never to do that again."

Hartley said being on the phone in the forefront was a planned bit, but he hoped he didn't take away from "the magic of that beautiful, ridiculous TikTok moment." He added that if he had to do it over again, he would be "asleep."

The This Is Us cast had no trouble getting in the wedding spirit. Sterling K. Brown took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a behind-the-scenes video of him and his co-stars dancing the wobble to V.I.C.'s "Wobble Baby" while in costume for Kate's (Chrissy Metz) wedding to Phillip (Chris Geere).

Brown, Metz and Geere are all out on the dance floor in the hilarious clip, with Jon Huertas and Susan Kelechi Watson also joining in on the fun.

Justin Hartley is in the video too, but opted to play on his phone and leave the dancing to his co-stars. "So many calls to make and emails to send and just so little time," Hartley joked of the clip.

"You didn’t know the Pearsons could wobble, did you?" Brown captioned the post.

Watson shared the video on her Instagram page too, writing, "It’s the wobble, baby! I mean is it a wedding without one?....don't give us time between scenes!"

Back in February, This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia reflected on the show's six-season run as its series finale nears.

"I don't know if there's a pressure, so much as an enjoyment," Ventimiglia said during a panel with the show's cast and creator. "When you've been on the show for as long as we've been doing it for six years, I think you read the script, you get excited about what you're going to be a part of, you get excited about what you're going to watch your friends do when you see the edits and the final cuts."

"I don't know if there's a pressure that I feel, other than we just keep doing exactly what we've been doing for six years," he continued. "I know there's expectation but beyond that, reading what I've already read and what I've already held in our hands, it's going to deliver. It's truly, truly going to deliver."

This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

How crooked editing spoils the impression of dance — Movies and series on DTF

I don't dance myself, but I like to watch others dance. And I noticed that I prefer it when the camera calmly watches the dancer, and does not rush around the stage. I'll show you with examples what I mean.


How we watch dances live

When someone dances live, you see EVERYTHING. Especially if you are standing in front of the dancers, and not from the top side at the end of the hall. In any case, the overall picture is clear: the dancers in the right order perform the necessary movements synchronously.

When I watch a video, I also want to be in the front row and see everything. But the specialists who edit videos of people dancing often turn on the show off mode: they add effects, close-ups, change and cut frames, circle the dancers with the camera - this makes it difficult to perceive the dance as a whole number, it makes it difficult to consider the idea of ​​the dance.

More examples to follow

Bad example

Chose a random number from the "Dancing on TNT" program. The jury admires how the participant dances. So put the camera like we're on the jury too. But no.

The cameras are flying around the hall like pierced balls, for some reason they focus on parts of the body, show the audience, show the SHOCKED Miguel, approach, move away. Just chaos. And so with all the dances from this show. I tried to watch it, but I can't.

Damn, I understand that this is a TV show and it's important for viewers to see how Miguel is feigning shock. But dancing ... where is the dancing?!

There is also such a shitty example from the same show, but it's on Rutube... If you take the risk and go over, you'll see how Miguel was brought to tears! Who brought it? Yes, some guys whose dancing is cool, but because of the editing, all the magic is lost ...

Cool example

Jungle music video. This is a "live" one-piece number, in which the generous and wise camera allows us to see EVERYTHING, and does not fly like crazy. Thanks to the smooth movement, I enjoy staging.

Jungle has dancing accents in almost all videos. If you like music, then you can safely google and shove

Another cool example

Pay attention to how the guy behind Serge Ginsburg's back is rocking. If you pile on editing and effects, then the magic will disappear.

Jean-Pierre Cassel is dancing - Vincent Cassel's father

Bad example

I love footwork. Under 160 bpm, guys and ladies do magic with their feet. It is strictly forbidden to show this dance from different sides, and even more so cut or slow down. But some "craftsmen" did it...

The dance is spoiled at the beginning of the video and from 3:35

Cool example

Here's how to show the footwork. Footwork dad dances - KING CHARLES. Dancing clearly and clearly. The camera does not twitch, but I look at my feet, I see breakneck speed, complex movements and skill.

A variant with a moving camera also has a place to be, but without fanaticism. Here is the footwork again and the camera, which “floats” a little, but still takes the position of the viewer in the front row - this spoils the impression of the dance.

Floating camera reception is coolly used by dance schools. Dances by students of different dance schools and choreographers are a separate genre on YouTube. I advise you to watch the channels: Kyle Hanagami, 1MILLION Dance Studio, Matt Steffanina.

Show one number. The camera is smooth, as if a sharpened knife slides through solid butter - a baldness. And there is no editing and other visual husks. But you could show a close-up of his hand on her belt, or the wet eyes of the audience, or her fingers sinking into his hair! NO!

Direct commercial. Want also? Go to our school!

In fact, you don’t even need professional confusing shooting and a super camera in 4k. A cool dance will look cool anyway. For example, someone just took a photo of my favorite HIRO. Everything is perfectly visible.

I don't know what this type of dance is called. Who will tell?

Or here's an even more shitty version, which does not interfere with enjoying the dance. Video from the training, filmed on the phone, hands are shaking, people are yelling. You don't need fakes and whistles to show the idea of ​​the Les Twins.

Well, the last pop and super illustrative example of staging a dance number. It’s difficult to shoot like that, because you can’t hide flaws with the help of editing, but even a rare specimen of a stinky snob should get high from the result.

How are things in the movies?

In films, the delivery of dance numbers works differently. It is still important to see the faces of the characters, their experiences, the environment. But still, in the cinema, I prefer solid scenes where you can fully see the dancers without any sharp camera throws.

Bad example

You can see that the dude is dancing really cool, well, why spoil everything with an “attentive” camera, which will show your ass, then arms, then legs. I don't care about his body parts, I want to watch him rock out to his full height! Until the 48th second, everything is fine, but then the dance loses its dynamics due to editing.

Dance starts at 00:29

Cool example

Step Up 3. A character named Elk is having fun with his girlfriend. The camera does not twitch, but only watches the dance, getting up at the right time in the right place. And that's great.

This number is also a tribute to scenes from classic Hollywood musicals

Final scene from Singing in the Rain. There are mounting glues, but they do not interfere. The camera does not dance over the body of Gene Kelly, does not spoil the overall picture.

The actor had a fever of 39. 4 °C during the filming of this scene

Illustrative example from the movie "Foxtrot"

According to the scenario, a bored soldier is dancing at the checkpoint. The frame for the entire dance scene changes only three times: we are shown the dance from the side, in front and from the back in the general plan - these three cuts and changes in the shot do not interfere with enjoying the soldier's dance.

The original music is different, but it seems much more dynamic with this one

But for clarity, I randomly mixed the frames, cutting the same scene from the film. It's not quite right anymore.

The last cool example, honestly, honestly

I can't help but show an excerpt from my favorite La La Land. The cameraman points the camera at Gosling's beautiful face - no! The operator admires Emma's cute legs - no! The camera pans around the dancers, looping over hands or smiles—no, no, no! There are always two characters in the frame and one beautifully choreographed dance number.

Dance starts at 1:50

All this chatter about editing and operators is purely my fad. I wanted to share with you, and at the same time show some cool scenes and clips.

Share these cool solid numbers in the comments so that everything can be seen! Or vice versa with bad examples :)

P. S. Subscribe to my telegram: "Swan about cinema." There I write briefly and without tediousness about the films I have watched. I write rarely, but aptly, and only about cinema, so I will not spam.

where to learn bachata, ballroom dancing, salsa, shuffle and other popular styles

Afina Erofeeva


I am sure that everyone can find a dance style to their liking.

For example, locking and house are suitable for those who want to experience more positive emotions, and for looseness and confidence, you should pay attention to contemporary or social dances. With a measured lifestyle, you can try reggaeton or shuffle, and with an active and rich lifestyle, you can try calm and structured styles: a European ballroom program or classical ballet.

In this article I will tell you how different styles differ, and I will also help you find schools where you can learn all this.


What dances are taught: ballroom dancing, club latin
Cost: one-time lesson - 600 R, subscription for 4 classes - 2000 R
Where: st. Profsoyuznaya, 56
More details: on the website

"Titul" is a dance club that specializes in ballroom dancing. The club has groups for beginners and advanced students, and you can study according to the European or Latin American program.

The European program includes Slow Waltz, Viennese Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Fast Foxtrot. And in Latin America - samba, cha-cha-cha, rumba, paso doble and jive. You can also contact "Titul" if you need to prepare a wedding dance.

Ballroom dancing works almost all muscle groups, especially legs and core. In the dance hall, you won’t be able to get pumped up like from hard regular work in a fitness club, but dancing can compete with running. Dancing also affects posture and coordination.


How much does it cost to send a child to ballroom dancing

At first, you can study in Czech, but over time you will need special dancing shoes: a lower heel for the European program, a higher heel for Latin. Men, as a rule, wear dark trousers, and women wear knee-length or ankle-length skirts.

First dance school

What dances are taught: salsa, bachata, kizomba, reggaeton
Cost: single lesson in a group — 500 R, subscription for 8 group lessons — 2900 R, individual lesson — 2500 R
Where: st. Krasnoproletarskaya, 16
More details: on the website

The school specializes in social dances and reggaeton. Social dance is built on contact and interaction between a couple. The leader here is the partner: he invites the partner to make some kind of movement, and she answers him. It turns out a kind of dialogue, improvisation, which does not involve memorizing a sequence of movements.

Another advantage of social dancing is communication and new acquaintances: you can go to parties and dance with new partners every time. The First Dance School often organizes them: in the summer they usually dance on Pushkinskaya Embankment near Gorky Park.


How much does it cost to practice sports hustle in Moscow

I'll tell you more about the specific styles that you can learn here.

Salsa is a Cuban dance based on communication, flirting and seduction. Physical contact in salsa is almost always limited to either hands or touching the waist or shoulder. Dancing salsa is not difficult: each dancer independently combines the movements as he wishes.

Women should wear high heels and an ankle strap. From clothes, a dress or a skirt is suitable, which do not interfere with freely swinging your leg, bending over, raising your arms, bending over and sitting down deeply: the main thing is that nothing is torn or torn during movements. I recommend that men wear sports shoes or light shoes with flexible soles for classes: sneakers with thick rubber soles will not work. You can come to the first classes at the dance school in Czech shoes or sports slippers.

Bachata is a simple, affordable and popular dance from the Dominican Republic. Bachata is built on leading and following. To make the dance look spectacular, you will need to learn the backbends and waves: this requires skill and control of the body.

Science pop about the history of everyday life: about food, money, fear

Clothes made of elastic fabrics are suitable for bachata. Just like other social dances, you can start bachata classes in sneakers and, as your dance level grows, switch to special dance shoes. For a partner, both shoes for the Latin American program and shoes for the Argentine tango are suitable, it is better to start with a low and stable heel - no more than 5 centimeters.

The choice of shoes for men is even wider. They can dance in jazz shoes, jazz sneakers, modern jazz shoes, European ballroom shoes. The main condition is a comfortable fit on the leg.

Kizomba is a dance and musical style that originated in Angola. There are no complex elements and connections in kizomba: to start dancing, it is enough to master three or four basic movements. Basically, the elements are performed by the lower body: hips and legs.

The partner covers the entire back of the partner with his hand and controls every movement, completely controlling her. But visually, the main role is played by the partner and the smooth movements of her back and hips: they move in the dance with a large amplitude. Any clothes are suitable for classes.

Reggaeton is one of the most active and dynamic dances for all ages. The roots of the dance go back to Puerto Rico and Panama, where it originated on the basis of reggae, hip-hop and dancehall.

Reggaeton is frank, sensual, sometimes even aggressive. The basis of the dance is rhythmic movements of the body, hips, chest simultaneously with the pelvis, waves, turns, shaking. The dress code is also not important, except that it may be inconvenient to dance in a skirt.

Oriental dances - belly dance school

What dances are taught: belly dance
Cost: 8 lessons — 2900 R, individual lesson — 2500 R, first lesson — free
Where: st. Krasnoproletarskaya, 16
More details: on the site

Belly dance is the modern name for a certain dance technique, a mixture of Indian, Turkish, Arabic, African and Gypsy folk dances, combined into one style.

When learning the technique of belly dancing, first perform various elements of the dance - waves, shaking, strikes, figure eights - in isolation: only with arms, shoulders, chest, hips or legs. Each part of the body works in a different rhythm and direction, while the dancer herself may not even move. The East is danced with almost relaxed muscles, composure and clarity are necessary only at certain moments to perform blows and shaking.

For classes, you will need a top that reveals the belly, arms and décolleté as much as possible. Plus, interchangeable shoes with thin soles like Czech shoes, gymnastic half shoes or ballet flats.

The school has different levels of groups: beginner, intermediate, advanced and show group. The latter regularly wins prizes at competitions and festivals.


What kind of dances are taught: classical dance, modern dance (contemporary), additionally they conduct classes in stretching - stretching and maintaining physical fitness
Cost: trial lesson - 300 R, 4 lessons - 2800 R, 8 lessons - 4800 R, 16 lessons - 8800 R, 24 lessons - 10 800 R, individual lesson - 2800 R

The teaching staff of the school includes dancers with a choreographic education, ballerinas and candidates for master of sports in rhythmic gymnastics. In the classroom, students not only practice technique, but also perform elementary group studies, prepare for classical productions, rehearse performances and receive homework. Every year, the studio holds reporting concerts: students can take part in one-act ballets or modern numbers.

I'll tell you more about the specifics of different classes to make it easier to choose a direction.

Classical dance classes include exercise at the barre, exercises in the middle - the same as exercise, but without support - and small jumps. An exercise at the barre is a sequence of movements aimed at sequential warming up and inclusion of the foot, knee, hip into the work, working out the correct positions, setting the body and feet. All this is then used in the dance. There is also an opportunity to master the technique of pointe dance: after a general lesson, those who wish are given half an hour to train jumps, steps and combinations “on fingers”.

Those who want to practice classical dance will need soft ballet shoes and tight-fitting sportswear: leggings, leggings or ballet leotard, ballet leotard and skirt.

Modern dance, contemporary, incorporates elements of both Western dance styles - modern, jazz, pop and folk dances, classical ballet, and oriental techniques, such as yoga and martial arts. Each choreographer develops his own unique style of dance in accordance with his dance background and character, so the practice of this dance in different studios can vary significantly.


How I made my online course

During classes, attention is paid to body awareness, quality of movements, work with space and body weight. Jumps, falls, movements are studied at different levels - at the top and in the stalls: on the floor.

Stretching is needed to increase flexibility and develop muscle tone. During the lessons, the muscles of the back, abs, legs, and buttocks are worked out in a complex way. With regular practice, stretching increases the mobility of the hip joints - this helps in classical dance classes. A lot of attention is also paid to stretching into a split, which gives a large range of motion necessary for many areas of dance.

Loose sportswear and socks are required for class.


What dances are taught: shuffle
Where: st. Malaya Dmitrovka, 5/9; Prospect Mira, 5, bld. 80s. The main element of the shuffle is the hop: a small, almost imperceptible horizontal jump. It is used in the vast majority of movements and gives the dance the illusion of sliding on the floor. Shuffle can be danced to any music.

The dance is energetic, so the class is a complete cardio workout. For shuffle, it is important to choose the right shoes: sports sneakers or sneakers with a strong toe on non-slip thick soles.

The studio holds an annual Underground Shuffle Battle championship. The group also participates in corporate parties, dances in parks, and conducts night training.

Dragon Dance School

What kind of dances are taught: hip-hop, dubstep, popping, robot, breakdance and other street dances
Cost: the first lesson is free, one-time training is 700 R, 8 lessons is 3900 R

The school has existed since 2000, its founder Alexander "Dragon" is one of the veterans of electric boogie and dubstep in Russia, who influenced the development of street dance, three times champion of Russia in top break dance, organizer championships in street dance styles. Studio students also participate in dance events, competitions and battles.

The school has two courses. The first one is called "Illusion-style", where they learn to create illusory movements imitating "non-human" ones - a robot, puppet, wave or bunch of energy, and spectacular performances based on movements from different styles. In Russia, these areas are called top breakdance.

Other - "Hip Hop Styles" - includes elements of hip hop and related styles such as popping. Classes are very active, they have a lot of intense amplitude movements - they are convenient to perform in everyday clothes: jeans, T-shirt, sneakers.

Here are some dance styles you can learn.

Dubstep consists of a series of long and short movements that are woven with accelerations and decelerations up to a complete stop. Waves, complex sharp and smooth movements of the hands and elbows, turns, glides and isolations are used. All this allows you to completely beat the music track.

Robot is one of the top breakdancing styles. The basis is the possession of the dimestop technique - the ability to freeze for a while, standing on one foot on an imaginary coin.

The principle of style is the "isolation" of movements. The most difficult thing in the performance of the robot is the point control of the muscles: the dancer must convey the feeling as if the robot is trying to perform human movements. The movable joints of the arms and legs are hinges that perform rotational movements. Another important principle is the sequence of movements: the next movement does not begin until the previous one ends.

Animation is an imitation of the movement of animated cartoon characters. The main content of the animation is different types of gaits. Each movement is divided into many small phases with stops, the pattern of the dance is intermittent.

Hip-hop is almost any dance that is danced to the appropriate music, so it is more commonly referred to as "hip-hop dance". New school hip-hop dance relies on active footwork. The main movement of hip-hop dance - "push" - is swaying the body back and forth or side to side with a straight back. As a rule, the swing in hip-hop is not performed on its own, but with a springy movement of the legs, and all basic movements are performed in parallel with the swing. The dancer moves dynamically and at the same time relaxed, so it seems that the number is invented on the go.

Popping - the essence of this style is that each movement ends with a sharp deceleration due to muscle tension. A diligently engaged dancer in six months will be able to portray the "moonwalk".

Exotic Dance

What kind of dances are taught: strip plastic and pole dance
Cost: trial lesson — 300 R, one-time lesson — 800 R, subscription for 8 attendances of group classes — 5000 Slave 8, unlimited days - 12 000 R, individual lesson - 1800 R
Where: st. Pyatnitskaya, 71/5; 2nd Cable passage, 1, building 2; Khokhlovsky lane, 7; st. Maria Ulyanova, 19

Pole dance, in my opinion, is an alternative to both the gym and aerobics, since it combines strength exercises and aerobic exercise. The difference between striptease and half-dance is that the first is a club version of the pole dance, and the second is more of a sport.

Pole dance is a unique synthesis of dance art and sport, choreography and acrobatics. The pole acts as a “partner” and at the same time a gymnastic apparatus, and the dance line can run both horizontally - movements near the pole, “twisting”, and vertically - elements performed on the pole, “tricks”.


How I worked as a dancer in strip clubs

For classes, separate sets are suitable - a top and short tight-fitting shorts or leggings for exotic dance: so the movements will not be constrained by anything. T-shirts will not fit: without an open waist, it is difficult to perform elements on the upper and middle parts of the pole. A pole top should open the armpits and neck, but cover the chest as much as possible to reduce slippage and minimize injury.

Challenger Dance & Fit

What dances are taught: Irish dancing, capoeira, acrobatics
Cost: one-time - from 750 R, subscription for 8 classes - from 4400 R, subscription for 4 classes - from 2600 R Cosmonaut Volkova, 10, bld. Studio students participate in reporting lessons, concerts, competitions and other events.

Irish dancing are characterized by fast and precise leg movements, while the upper body does not move and the arms are tightly pressed to the body.

The most important thing in Irish dance is the shoes. Two types are used: soft lace-up slippers and hard boots. Acquaintance with the dance culture of the Irish begins only in light ballet shoes without heels, heels are required for more experienced performers for rhythmic hits on the floor.

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art with elements of dance and acrobatics. In a real fight, capoeira is almost never used, but it is used in a game fight, similar to a spectacular dance with complex movements and tricks: low positions, kicks, sweeps.

Class requires abada, a traditional pair of pants designed specifically for capoeira. They have enough elasticity to perform all acrobatic stunts without discomfort at the slightest movement. Shoes are not needed: capoeiristas practice barefoot.


What kind of dances are taught: house, krump, dancehall, locking, hip-hop, vogue
Cost: trial lesson - 300 R, one-time lesson - 500 R, 8 lessons - 30-00 R 5000 R, unlimited subscription for 30 days - 6500 R
Where: Krivokolenny Lane, 16

The Mainstream Dance Center offers students a variety of street dance styles to choose from.

Crump. An impulsive and emotional style of dance that emphasizes interaction between performers and audience. The uniqueness of krumps lies in the nature of the movements - the krumper dances abruptly, moves quickly, often jumps and comes into physical contact with partners in a dance "fight".

House. The style was composed of dance movements of many styles like breakdance, hip-hop, jazz, disco, latin, but with house music. House is based on three basic elements: rocking the body to the rhythm of the music, acrobatic waves and footwork.

Vogue is based on a quick change of model poses and a frilly podium gait. Usually the striking part in the dance is hands and emotional playing, but, in addition, turns, high throws of legs and virtuoso falls to the ground have been added to modern vogue. The vogue is usually danced to house music.
