Wise People Dance. Here’s Scientific Proof.

Via on Dec 22, 2012

“Neil deGrasse Tyson likes to dance.”

NdT can do it all, with a smile! Including dance!

(Space Jam)

“In addition to wrestling and rowing in college, he was also active in dance in styles including jazz, ballet, Afro-Caribbean, and Latin Ballroom. In 1985, he won a gold medal with the University of Texas dance team at a national tournament in the International Latin Ballroom style.”

Caring about facts, a sense of curiosity and wonder, wisdom…none of that matters if you can’t have a sense of humor about yourself and joy on a dancefloor!

Comment via Vimeo: “Best video in the internet.”

    2nd video is awesome.

  2. […] Why? Because he gets how awesome life, and this world, and you, and me, and the universe is—and he can explain it. And he’s a rocket scientist, kinda thing. And he can dance. […]
