Doctors Have Now Found An Explanation for Michael Jackson’s Iconic Dance Move
Neurosurgeons have described in detail how Michael Jackson achieved bio-mechanically impossible dance moves in his music video Smooth Criminal. In the 1987 routine, Michael leans from the ankle at a 45 degree angle, while keeping his body straight as a rod.
The illusion, which many have tried to copy, was thanks to specially designed shoes and the artist’s core strength. The spine experts warn others against attempting the potentially injurious but mind-boggling move.
“Most trained dancers with strong core strength will reach a maximum of 25 to 30 degrees of forward bending while performing this action. MJ pulled off a gravity-defying 45 degree move that seems unearthly to any witness,” according to Manjul Tripathi and colleagues from the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh, India, in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine.
The move is incredibly hard to pull off, requiring athletic core strength from strengthened spinal and lower-limb muscles, say the doctors. “Several MJ fans, including the authors, have tried to copy this move and failed, often injuring themselves in their endeavors,” they caution.
