The Harlem Shake

December 28th 2006 06:44
The Harlem Shake, which is also known as the Albee, was developed in the 1980s in Harlem, New York. It later evolved into the Chicken Noodle Soup dance, which became the most popular dance in the summer of 2006.

The reason it was called Albee was because the creator of the Harlem Shake was a man called Al B. He also goes by the nickname, Sisqo. It has now spread to other urban areas, and world-wide hip hop clips.

There is very little information on the Harlem Shake, so the best way to grasp it, and understand how it's danced is to check out these two clips. The first clip is the Harlem Shake. The guy performing it combines it with the crip walk as well. The
second clip features Chris Brown doing the Chicken Noodle Soup dance. Enjoy!
