Finger Circus talks Finger Tutting: A New Dance Form on the Rise
Finger tutting is an up and comer in the experimental dance world, you might know it from commercials, viral YouTube videos, Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off in 2014 or Doctor Strange’s incantations in the 2016 Marvel blockbuster.
JayFunk, Pnut and Ctut from the dance group Finger Circus discuss the rise in popularity of finger tutting, their influence on the genre and where it’s going in the future.
Partially a form of street dance and partially a visual spectacle, finger tutting comes from the angular poses found in ancient Egyptian art; the name comes from King Tut.
Finger tutting recently hit a rise in popularity after a Samsung commercial featuring dancer/choreographer Julian Daniels (JayFunk) went viral in 2011. Since then it has been working it’s way into more mainstream channels and can be seen in movies, TV shows and music videos.
