Check out those moves! My colleague shared this video over the weekend, didn’t get around to watching it until today but I’m really enjoying it. 

Some of the Sidi dancers’ movements are inspired by animals — notably birds. You’ll notice how they use their eyes as much as their limbs. It actually reminded me of the popping and locking break dancers are known for.
