TRANSCRIPT

♪♪

-I'm very excited to dance with you guys today.

Okay, we're going to be starting off with a quick, easy warm up.

After that, we're going to explore some different ways

we can make percussive movements, okay?

And then I'm gonna teach you guys not just one,

but two steps,

because we're going to be all-stars today.

Okay, we're going to learn two steps, and then we're going

to kind of put it together in a really cool way

that I'm really excited to share with you.

So since we're already behind,

let's not waste any more time.

Let's get started.

Okay, so we're going to start off with a warm-up.

You can just follow me, okay?

Make sure that you are listening to your body today

as we are dancing and as we're moving around.

Okay, do what feels good to you.

Feel free to make the moves your own.

And most importantly, have fun.

Okay, if you're ready, give me some thumbs up

and we're going to get right to it.

All right.

D.J. Curtis, you can put on our little warm-up track.

You're just going to follow me, okay, guys?

[ Mid-tempo jazz music plays ] Real easy. Okay?

We're going to start off with our head,

just doing some simple head isolations, all right?

Here we go. We're going to look right, look right.

Then left, right, then left, right, then left.

Good job. Now look up.

Look up then down at your feet.

Up, then down at your feet. Up, then down at your feet.

Now ticktock. Tick and tock.

Just side to side, nice and easy.

You got it. Roll it in a circle to the right.

Now we're going to roll it to the left.

Moving on down to our shoulders.

They're going to go up and down.

You can add a little bop to it.

Just kind of take it side to side.

Great.

Roll it back with the neck.

And two and three.

Now forward -- one and two and three and four,

Our ribs are going to go side to side.

So your chest right here in the middle.

Gonna go side to side to side to side.

A little faster.

Hey, there you go. You've got it.

Now we're going to go front to back. Here we go.

Front, back.

Front, back. A little faster.

Front and back. Front and back. Front and back.

Now let's make it bop.

Go front, right, back, left.

Can you go the other way?

Front, left. Ooh, don't get tricked.

I want to move everything out really smooth, really smooth.

Now go the other way.

Smooth it out, Smooth it out.

Cool. March in place. March.

There you go. Get those bodies moving.

I see you. Hey.

Jump out, jump out. Then in.

Out, then in. Out, then in.

Out, then in. Almost there.

Out, then in. Out, then in.

Make sure you're light on your feet.

Then in.

And you want to do a little bit of stretching.

We're gonna take our arm across.

Give it a nice little hug.

And shake it out.

Other arm, stretch it across.

And shake it out.

Now you're going to grab your left foot.

I want to see can you balance.

You're going to need to know how to balance,

okay, for our combination, we're doing.

So this is a good time to practice.

And keep your knee up. Pull it to the front.

Roll that ankle around.

And the other way.

Shake it out. Shake it out.

Other leg.

Grab your foot.

And keep it up. Come to the front.

Grab that knee. Roll it around in a circle.

And the other way.

And shake it out. Shake it out.

Massage your legs, rub your thighs,

get them warmed up and ready in the back.

Your calves. Get them ready.

Get them ready.

Grab your fingers. Pull your fingers down.

You're stretching your wrist.

'Cause in stepping we do a lot with our hands

and our arms and our wrists.

And other one. Switch. Pulling your fingers down.

Just like that. Show you from the side.

Okay.

Shake everything out.

All right, I think we're ready. Yeah? Okay.

[ Laughs ]

So today we are going to be doing stepping,

and as we go through our lesson today,

I have a little agenda that's going to help us out.

So if you peek back there in the corner,

that's our agenda for today.

So first, we're going to start off with exploring,

then we're going to learn,

then we're going to build,

then we're going to share out, okay?

So if you have any trouble or you forget

where we are, it's okay.

It's right up there for you,

and also I'll be telling it to you as well.

And if you're just joining in with me, no worries.

You didn't miss anything yet.

We just did a quick, simple warm-up,

and now we're about to get into our stepping.

So feel free to share this video,

start a watch party, because this is about to be so much.

But I'm so excited, guys!

Okay, so,

if you've never heard of stepping before,

I'll tell you what it is.

It is a dance style

that is made of percussive movements --

sharp, very sharp, precise, percussive movements, okay,

that come together in different rhythms and patterns

to create beautiful sounds

and beautiful movements with your body, okay?

And you can do it by yourself

or you can do it with a large group of people.

So what I want to know is,

how can you make sound with your body?

Now, wait, wait, wait.

I already see some of you guys out there say,

"Oh, Miss Yvonne, I know, I could just use my mouth

and make a whole bunch of sounds."

I know you can do that, but I want to know

how else you can make sounds with your body

without using your mouth,

because we'll use our voices later on in the lesson.

I have something very fun

that we're going to do with that later.

So I want to know what you can do with your body.

So some things that a lot of us already know how to do

and like to do is clap, right?

Right here. Can you clap with me?

Hey. Like this. Can you clap? Oh.

Hey. Come on. You can clap like this. Hey.

Can you clap with me? Come on.

Oh, can you clap like this?

Hey, can you clap? Can you clap?

Can you clap like this?

What else can you do?

Can you stomp like this? Can you stomp like this?

Oh. Can you stomp? Can you stomp?

Can you stomp like this?

What else can you do, guys?

Write in the comments.

I'm going to try some different things out

and I'll see what I come up with.

I don't know what I'm going to come up with.

But I'm going to see what else we can do.

Not using my voice. I was kind of cheating.

I was kind of saying some words there.

But I'm going to explore some things

and see what else I can do.

I want you to write in the comments

and maybe tell me some ideas you have

for how you can create sounds with your body.

So I already did some clapping. I have that.

I saw somebody wrote in the comments -- "stomping."

Yeah, we got that.

I know I can also maybe use my feet in a different way.

Maybe if I kick my... Oh, wait, let me try that again.

Oh, did you guys hear that?

When I kicked my heel against the ground,

it was kind of like a scuffing motion

and it made a sound.

Yeah, we can do that too.

Maybe I can tap my toe.

Tap like that.

Along with clapping and stomping,

you can also [Snapping fingers]

I don't know, there's something else, something else.

I can't think of it. Not coming to me.

It's something, something -- snapping!

Yes! You can snap.

What else can we do? What else can we do?

We can snap.

Oh, if you're like really flexible,

you can maybe pop some joints or something.

I saw somebody wrote that in the comments.

You can pop different things, crack different things.

You can also do some tapping and hitting.

Okay, so stepping is a dance style.

It was actually created at HBCUs here in America, okay,

by Black Greek fraternities

and sororities called the Divine Nine.

So they created this, but it actually is also rooted

in the gumboot dance from South Africa.

Okay, so it has its traditions in Africa.

It started here in America.

But people do it all over the world today.

Okay, so I have my cool college gear on today

because I didn't go to an HBCU,

but I went to a school called Penn State,

and I was actually on a step team when I was there.

So let me see if I can remember some things.

Maybe you guys can help me.

We're going to try some different rhythms

exploring these different percussive sounds with our body.

So all the different things that you guys were thinking of

and writing in your comments -- patting your leg,

snapping, clapping, and stomping,

I want to see you guys can explore some different rhythms

and patterns with me as we do that.

So right now, if you're just hopping in,

we're in our explore stage.

We're exploring different percussive sounds

with our bodies.

So let me see if we can try this.

I'll go first, and then I'll say, "Your turn,"

and it'll be your turn. And I want to see,

can you repeat the rhythm that I am creating?

Okay, this is something that we call "call-and-response."

Okay, you ready?

Here we go. I'll go first.

My turn.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

I can't hear you. My turn.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

Now, that's our rhythm.

I want to see what different ways you can do

that rhythm with your body.

So I'm going to try to mix it up a little bit. Here we go.

My turn.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

Cool!

Were you able to do it?

Oh, somebody said you can jump.

That's actually really, really cool.

And that's another great thing you can do.

So it's more than just a stomp. It's actually a jump.

We're going to try that one more time.

I want to see, can you explore

some different ways to make sound?

So that means that the first time we did it,

if you were stomping, maybe try snapping this time.

If you were snapping, maybe try clapping.

If you were stomping, snapping, and clapping,

see if you can hit your body in a different way.

You can clap. You can hit your arms like this.

You can bring them up and hit the back of your palms.

You can hit your heel in the front.

You can hit your heel in the back.

You can... Let me see.

You can swipe your legs on the side to the back.

And like somebody said in the comments, you can jump.

So we're going try this again. Here we go.

My turn.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

All right!

So now I think you guys kind of got it.

I think that you guys are exploring

these different ways that you can make these sounds.

You're making some really, really cool choices

that I can pretend to see.

So now we're going to start to learn.

I'm going to teach you guys not just one, but two steps.

Okay, so moving into the learning phase.

Here we go.

So our first step,

the rhythm is going to be a steady beat, okay?

It's a steady metronome beat. It does not change.

The pattern is going to be simple.

One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.

That's our beat. Okay.

Our movements that we're going to do for our step

are movements that you've already done already,

you've already explored.

We're going to start with a stomp.

We're gonna stomp.

Stomp with your right leg.

Okay, not too hard if you have neighbors.

Now, you're going to clap.

Hands come together.

Now you're going to clap again,

but you're going to mix it up,

and you're actually going to clap under your leg.

The other leg. Not the one that you stomped.

The other one. So your left leg.

Clap under. Ooh!

When you're here,

you want to make sure you pick that knee up nice and tall.

And as you're clapping under, you also want to make sure

your arms are nice and super straight

so you can give a nice strong clap

when they get under there.

And you hold it.

Because now we're going to clap over.

This is why I had you practice your balance in the warm-up.

I hope you're ready. Don't fall. I see you. Hold it.

So after you clap under, you're going to clap over,

then you're going to stomp your foot and bring it down.

Whew! That's a lot.

I know. But it's okay. I got you.

We're going to try it again. So we stomp with our right foot.

We clap under the leg.

Over the leg.

Now we stomp with our left foot.

Clap again.

Under your other leg.

Over your leg.

Okay?

And you just keep going back and forth,

clapping over, under, over, okay?

Over, under, over.

So the way we're going to kind of remember this step,

I have some words that I'm going to say,

and they kind of tell you what to do,

so it'll be easy for you, remember.

So it's going to go stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

You guys think you can try it with me?

Oh!

I think we can do it.

Okay, let's try it. Here we go.

We'll go super slow.

Five, six, seven, and...

Stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Did you do it? If you did it, say, "I did it."

Oh, you can do better than that. If you did it, say, "I did it."

Okay, cool.

That was step A, okay?

That was step A.

Make sure you have it. It's important. Hold on to it.

You're going to need to remember it for later on.

Okay, so the second step, we're going to call

this one step B,

is a little bit different than the first one

because our rhythm is not going to be on steady whole beats.

Instead it's going to be syncopated.

So when we do stepping,

a lot of times there are different rhythms

that could be happening at the same time.

Or they could all be doing the same rhythm at the same time.

So that's called polyrhythms.

We're not going to get into that today

when we're doing different rhythms at the same time.

We're going to focus on just one rhythm at a time today,

but our rhythm is going to change a little bit.

So it's not going to be steady. It's going to be syncopated.

Okay, so that means that it's going to

kind of do some cool things when we do it.

And I think the best way is just for me just to show you.

So we're keeping our same

two percussive movements for right now.

Okay, but hold onto all those ideas

that you explored in our in our exploration phase

'cause we're going to bring those back later.

So hold those ideas.

But right now we're learning.

We're doing step B,

our second step today, and we're focusing on

just making percussive sounds with our feet and our hands

by stomping and clapping.

So step B goes like this.

You're going to give me two stomps,

and they're going to kind of be fast.

You're going to go one, two.

Just like that. Can you try it with me?

Five, six, seven and -- one, two.

One more time.

Five, six, seven and -- one, two.

Yeah, so you're going to give me two stomps

and then you're going to give me four claps, okay?

but instead of the claps being,

like I said, steady on whole beats,

so it's not going to go one, two, three, four.

It's going to go one, two, three, four.

Did that sound different to you? I hope that it did.

I was trying to make sure I did them differently.

We're trying to make it syncopated

so there's more of a groove with the set.

Okay, so when we put it together,

it should sound like this.

I'll do it once, and the second time,

you can do it with me.

Okay, sounds good? Here we go.

This is step B.

This is what it should sound like.

One, two.

One, two.

One, two.

Try it with me.

One, two.

One, two. Hey.

One, two.

One, two.

I wonder, which one did you guys like more?

Do you guys like step A more,

or do you like step B more?

They're both really cool

and they both have stomping and clapping in them.

But the rhythms and the patterns are a little bit different.

So please write in the comments.

Let me know if you're feeling step A more

or if you're feeling step B more.

Which one do you like? Let me know. Okay, so...

We learned step A.

Well, first, let's go back.

We explored, okay?

We tried some different percussive sounds

with our bodies,

figuring out that we can make sounds not only with our voice

but also by snapping, by clapping,

by stomping, by hitting.

We can hit our chests.

We can hit our feet. We can hit our thighs, our legs.

We can hit so many different things

and it'll make a sound.

So we explored.

Ooh, I see the votes. The votes are coming in, folks.

I see a lot of votes for step B.

Yes, step B is very exciting, and it's a little more groovy.

Okay. Oh, my gosh. But they're both so good.

I see some votes for step A too. [ Gasps ] Aah!

What are we going to decide? Hmm.

So... [ Laughs ]

We did some exploration with our bodies

and then I taught you guys not just one, but two steps.

And now it is time for us to build.

We're going to start to put these together.

So I have a really cool thing to show you guys.

Do not laugh at my drawing.

I'm not a visual artist necessarily,

even though I do like to draw, but I'm not Picasso, okay?

But I try my best to try to help us visually

have something to look at as we do these different steps,

because we're going to try to now put the two steps together.

I like them so much, I just couldn't decide

which one I wanted to do, so let's just do both.

Okay, so here's my little drawing, guys.

These are our step combinations for today.

So, listen, we have step A.

Let me see if I get this straight.

Pick it up. There we go.

So we have step A, okay?

So it's stomp, and then that's my little clapping-hand symbol.

You're going to clap over, clap under, clap over.

Then you stomp again, clap over, clap under, clap over.

We got that?

The little black marks on the line

are kind of showing the beat.

And so I try to draw them equal distance from each other to show

that these are whole beats that we are doing with this step.

Okay? So that's step A.

And then we have step B.

All right, so step B.

It goes stomp, stomp, clap, clap, clap, clap.

I drew the little curved blue lines in between the claps.

Show that it's syncopated,

and I have a number two over my little foot there

to show you that you're going to stomp twice.

Okay, so it's two stomps, and then clap, clap, clap, clap.

Two stomps, clap, clap, clap, clap.

It's going to repeat.

So the way we're going to build this together, guys,

is that we're going to do our final combination,

we're going to do step B first,

actually, since that was, I think, the crowd favorite.

We'll do step B first, and then we'll do step A.

And then we're going do something cool

with our call-and-response.

I'll tell you about that in the second.

Let's just try the stepping portion first.

This is going to go back here. Sorry it's a little far away.

But it's just up there for a reference

'cause I think you guys have it,

I don't even think we really need this,

but it's up there for a reference.

So you have stomp, clap over, clap under, clap over,

stomp, clap over, clap under, clap over.

Those my clapping hands.

And then we also have B.

So two stomps, clap, clap, clap, clap.

We're going to start off with B first,

and then we're going to go to A.

Let's see if we can put it together.

You guys think we can do it? Are you ready?

I hope you guys are ready, I'm ready.

Give me some thumbs up.

We're going to try them together.

Make sure you're not stomping too hard,

because neighbors below us.

Okay, here we go. Starting off with step B.

Do not get mixed up. We're starting off with B first.

So we're going to start with this one

and then go to this one in case you need to see.

Here we go. Nice and slow.

Five, six, five, six, seven.

And one, two.

One, two,

One, two. We'll do it four times, okay?

One, two. Now step A.

We go stomp over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Aah! We did it! Oh, my gosh!

We were able to put them together.

Wow, that's so cool, guys.

So the last thing we're going to do,

we're going to add a little cold response.

So remember, in the beginning of the lesson when I said,

"Hey, guys, how can you make sounds with your body?"

You were like, "Oh, Miss Yvonne, I can use my mouth

and I could scream and I could yell."

And I was like, "Uh...hold on.

I want to try it with your body first, not with your voice."

Well, now this is the chance when you can use your voice

loud and proud as we're gonna do some call-and-response together.

And the easiest way to kind of teach this is just to do it.

So when...

Well, actually, we already did it a little bit earlier

when we were practicing our rhythms.

We did it with our body.

So remember when I was saying "my turn,"

and I did one, two, three, and then you did your turn,

and you also should have done one, two, three?

That was call-and-response. This is a big part in stepping.

Usually it happens with one person,

they're being the leader, and they'll say something

which will be the call, okay, to the whole group,

and everybody will respond together,

either with their voice vocally or through stepping

and doing their percussive movements.

So we're going to focus on just using our voices right now.

So the way we're going to start is I'm going to say,

"Attention!"

Okay, and you're going to say, "Huh!"

These are some really cool call-and-responses

that I got from my friends at Step Afrika!

They've actually been to Lincoln Center,

performed at Lincoln Center before.

So shout out to them, Step Afrika! We love you guys.

They're an amazing professional stepping dance company.

They step all over.

And one of my friends actually who's in the company,

she's actually watching right now.

So I'm going to say, "Attention!"

And you're going to say, "Huh!"

Nice and deep, okay? And strong.

And also when you say, "Huh!"

you're going to stand like this, at attention.

Your fists nice and strong up at your chest.

Feet together, shoulders down, ready to hit our step.

Okay, let's try it.

Attention!

Huh! You should say, "Huh!"

You can also stomp, too, if you want, with it.

Oh, I didn't hear you guys. Let's try that again.

Attention!

Did you do it?

I'm going to pretend like you did it.

Okay, so that's the first part.

Now, after that, I'm going to say, "Brothers and sisters,"

and you're going to say, "Huh!"

And when you say, "Huh!"

you're going to bring your hands from up here.

Right at your shoulders.

They should be nice up right in front of your chest.

You're going to bring them down to your hips,

and then you bring them back.

So when you say, "Huh!" they come down.

So you're going to go, "Huh!" and they come back.

All right, that's the response

that we say when I say, "Brothers and sisters."

It's also the response that we say when I say, "Attention!"

Okay, so let's try it.

Attention!

Huh!

I'm trying to be both of you guys. [ Laughs ]

I'm trying to do the call and the response.

So I would say, "Brothers and sisters,"

and you would say, "Huh!"

I'm going to say it again, "Brothers and sisters."

And you would say, "Huh!"

And then the third time I'm going to say,

"Brothers and sisters."

And you're gonna give me two huhs.

"Huh! Huh!"

Nice and strong. You guys got it?

And then after that, we're going to hit our step.

So in case you forgot the step,

it's B first, and then we go to A, okay?

And then we do call-and-response the beginning,

but we're going to do the same kind of call-and-response

that we did at the beginning of the lesson

when we were exploring different movements

and we were doing one, two, three with our beats.

We're going to put that at the very end of our step.

If you have any other ideas for things

that could go in the step,

feel free to write it in the comments.

You guys have been giving me some great ideas.

I've been loving everything I've been seeing.

I'm trying to, like, watch them all and see them all.

If you have anything you might want to add to our step,

let me know in the comments section.

But we're going to start off with our call-and-response.

I'll say, "Attention!" and we'll say, "Huh!"

"Brothers and sisters." Say it three times.

And then we're going to go into our step.

Yeah. And we'll do B, and then we'll do A,

and then I'll play around with making some different beats,

and you'll respond doing any kind of percussive movement

that you want to do, as long as it matches, okay?

Questions.

We got it. Are we confused?

No, I think we're okay. I believe in you guys.

I think you guys got this. You guys are all-stars!

All right. We're going to walk through it very, very slowly.

And then I'll see if I can get D.J. Curtis help me out

with something special.

So, attention!

You should have said, "Huh!"

Here we go.

Brothers and sisters. You say, "Huh!"

Brothers and sisters. You say, "Huh!"

Brothers and sisters. Do it two times. "Huh! Huh!"

And then I'll count us off.

Five, six, hit step B.

One, two.

One, two.

You got it.

One, two. Hey.

One, two.

Now we go to step A.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

Stomp, over, under, over.

My turn.

Your turn.

Hey, my turn.

That's the beat.

Your turn.

You can do any movement you want.

My turn.

As long as it matches the beat.

Your turn.

My turn.

Your turn.

And then we'll end right back here.

Awesome. Awesome sauce.

Now, listen, if you're lost, it's okay.

I've been lost, too, sometimes when I was learning new steps,

and I was like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

But the great thing is that this video will be saved,

so even if you're a little bit confused this time,

you can always watch it again and just try it again

until you get it, because I know everybody

watching this video can totally get this step.

So now we're going to see if we can try it.

And I'm actually going to have D.J. Curtis help us out.

So in order to help us out with the call-and-response

that we're going to be doing the vocal

call-and-response that we do in the beginning,

I actually recorded my voice

so that I can actually do the response with you guys,

so in case you don't know when to respond,

I'll be responding when you're supposed to respond

and then you'll hear a voice come on.

That'll be my voice that's going to do the call to help us out.

So now we're going to try this whole thing again

with D.J. Curtis helping us out.

We're going to go all the way through.

We're going to do our vocal call-and-response,

We're going to go right to step B.

And remember, if you don't remember what it is, it's okay.

It's up there.

My beautiful little drawings are there to help you out, okay?

Just remember -- stomp, over, under, over.

And then stomp, stomp, clap, clap, clap, clap.

Four claps, okay?

So we'll do step B, then we'll do step A,

and then we'll do some percussive call-and-response

with our bodies, okay?

And then I think that might be it for today.

Let's see. You guys ready? Give me some thumbs up.

I'm going to say, "Attention!"

and then D.J. Curtis is going to hit our track.

Okay, so give me some thumbs up if you're ready.

Make sure you're standing nice and tall,

standing tall and proud.

You've accomplished so much today.

You've learned some really, really cool steps,

and I'm so proud of you guys for doing this workshop

and making it through with me.

Okay, I'm going to say, "Attention!"

and then, D.J. Curtis, you can hit the track.

Attention! Huh!

Brothers and sisters.

Huh! Brothers and sisters.

Brothers and sisters. Huh!

Huh! Huh! Five, six, seven, eight.

Awesome! Oh, my gosh.

I hope that every time that you guys were doing

the call-and-response with me at the end

that you were trying new things with your body

the same way we had explored in the beginning.

Because those rhythms, I was mixing them up.

I was actually just making them up on the spot.

So you guys were able to stick with me, and that's amazing.

So...

I think we got it, guys.

I hope that you guys enjoyed stepping with me.

We did percussive movements, okay?

We found different ways we can create sound with our bodies.

Learned a little bit of history because we know that stepping

originated at HBCUs here in America by the Divine Nine.

Shout-out to them.

Okay, but it's also rooted

in the gumboot dance in South Africa.

All right. And then we learned two steps, we put them together.

We did some call-and-response

with our voices and with our bodies.

And we made an amazing step.

So, you guys want to try it one more time.

Can we try it a little bit faster?

[ Gasps ]

Here goes the true test. Here we go.

D.J. Curtis, we're gonna try it one more time.

Here we go. Attention!

Huh!

Brothers and sisters. Huh!

Brothers and sisters. Huh!

Five, six, seven, eight. Here we go.

I was trying to throw some other stepping moves in there

for you guys

so you can see some more of what this style looks like.

I hope that you had an amazing time with me.

We're going to just finish out with one little last thing.

We're going to clap a beat.

I'm gonna show you guys a little bit more stepping,

do a little freestyle for you guys.

But I hope you had fun.

You can create a video, share it with us.

Okay, we would definitely love to see you stepping at home

and what that looks like.

Thank you guys so much for tuning in with me today.

I had a lot of fun.

And we're going to end it up right here.

Clapping like this. Okay. Clap.

Come on. Clap. Hey.

So I want you guys all to keep this same beat.

Keep clapping like this.

And I'm going to do some polyrhythms for you guys,

which means that I'm going to do a different beat when I step.

But I want you guys to all stay right here, okay?

Clap like this.

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

[ Stomping rhythmically ]

Huh!

You guys like that? Clap. Oh! Keep clapping.

Oh! Hey! Why'd you stop?

What's going on? Hey. I'll do one more.

Here we go.

Hey!

Whoo! Hope you guys had fun.

I had a ton of fun with you guys.
