Every few months a new internet challenge arrives. There has been the mannequin challenge, running man challenge, bottle cap challenge and the Harlem shake challenge, to only name a few. When a challenge goes viral, thousands of video start to get uploaded with everyone giving the challenge their best shot.
Blanco Brown has given a new dance challenge trend, the Git Up challenge!
Blanco Brown is the singer behind the catchy song “The Git Up.” The lyrics describe a step by step dance tutorial. Blanco Brown even created a video tutorial to help dancers perfect the steps!
Many have taken it on as a challenge to dance it out, including this set of Nashville friends!
They are a sisterhood of women that formed a discipleship group and instead of a night on the town they decided to have fun with the latest internet challenge dance. In just a couple of hours they learned the choreography and recorded it.
Blanco Brown sings in the chorus:
“Gon’ and do the two step then cowboy boogie
Grab your sweetheart and spin out with ’em
Do the hoedown and get into it (Woooo Whoooo Whoooooouuu)
Take it to the left now and dip with it
Gon’ throw down take a sip with it
And lean back put your hips in it (Woooo Whoooo Whoooooouuu)
Let’s have some fun.”
There are seven girls in the “Git Up” challenge and you can tell they have rehearsed. They have nicknamed their dance group the “Git Up Girls” for the dance challenge. These girls know how to get down to “The Git Up!”
When the second verse starts the girls move positions. The girls in the back move forward and the girls in the front go to the back. The transition goes as smoothly as rehearsed.
This way every girl has her time in the spotlight!
The chorus is not the only time Blanco sings dance instructions. Blanco Brown sings after the chorus:
“Slide to the left (Left), slide to the right (Right)
Now cool down, have a good time
Slide to the left (Left), slide to the right (Right)
Do the butterfly have a good time
Round, round, round and round you go
It’s time to show out right now and take to the floor”
Every girl has their own sense of style. Near the end of the songs each girl start to freestyle dance. This is when every girl’s unique personality shines through and you can tell they are having fun!
These Nashville girls do a great job dancing to “The Git Up” challenge! They are not the only ones that are making “The Git Up” challenge go viral though. Many dads have started to do the challenge with their young daughters too! The dads have started their own move, of twirling their daughter by their hand at the line “grab your sweetheart.”
The viral challenge has exploded into every age group! There is no age limit to doing “The Git Up” challenge. It is all about having fun and not worrying how perfect you can do it.
As Blanco Brown says, “just have fun.”
