In the beginning of the year I made a list of goals. At the top of the list: learn the choreography from one of Aaliyah’s music videos—either More Than a Woman or the baby cackle-sampled, Are You That Somebody.
When I was teenager I used to choreograph routines for my high school dance team using Aaliyah’s videos as "inspiration," i.e. sometimes copying exact moves. As I compiled my goals I thought, what’s the harm in seeing if I can still do these moves seventeen years later? Unless I sprain something.
