Join in with The Jacksons and dance
Author: (1973)
Artykuł o przygodzie tanecznej Michaela w czasach Jackson5, z czasopisma Music Star.
Mrs Jackson gazed apprehensively up at the kitchen ceiling and wondered just how long it would hold up under the strain! Sometimes, as now, her sons sounded less like agile dancers and more like baby elephants.

Upstairs the Jackson boys were having a work-out of a new dance routine that Michael had made up the night before. Back and forward they moved across the practice area, taking their lead from Michael’s flying feet!

“Aw, come on Randy you’re out of step again!” Michael zoomed across to his younger brother. He didn’t mean to sound impatient but, like his big brother Jackie, he wanted everything to be perfect for their stage shows. And he couldn’t see why Randy kept getting the dance wrong.

“Cool it!” Marlon said quietly but firmly. He had noticed that Randy was trying his hardest. He was, in fact, trying too hard. To dance well you had to relax, let the rhythm take your feet, forget what you were doing and where and just fly! Randy was too tensed up, too determined not to let his brothers down.

“Have a break, guys,” Jermaine said and flopped down on the floor. He grinned up at Michael and Randy who were glaring at each other like champion boxers.

“Hey, a couple of years ago, Michael Joe, you didn’t know your left foot from your right, remember?”

“Oh yeah? Well how come I don’t remember that?”

Jermaine grinned his lovely smile and ruffled Michael’s hair as he sat down beside him on the floor. “Convenient loss of memory!”

Randy’s serious little face brightened at the thought of Michael having to learn how to dance, once upon a time. He was so good now, such a brilliant mover, that it was hard to picture him at the learning stage.

“Tell me,” he begged Jermaine and joined the others on the ground

“O.K. Well now…”

“Don’t you dare!” Michael launched himself at Jermaine like a jet propelled rocket but his brother fought him off and sat on him till he promised to be quiet!

“Now where was I…. oh yes, it was at our first dancing lesson. We’d done quite a bit at home and learnt a lot from dad and Jackie. And I must admit that Michael here was pretty good – for a kid of his age, of course!”

“Then how come you went to lessons?’ asked Randy, puzzled.

“It was only the one lesson!” Michael wriggled free from Jermaine and grinned. Looking back he could see the funny side of what had happened.

“Jermaine and I decided we’d like some real professional advice. So we booked in at this school. The woman who ran it had a whole list of letters after her name so we reckoned she’d be great to learn from.

“Well, we arrived and there was this big room with mirrors all down one side. The old girl was ancient and she looked horrified when we waltzed in wearing our old practice jeans and jerseys.”

Michael’s eyes grew round with horror. “She gave us tights to wear! Proper black wool tights!”

Jermaine yelled with laughter. “Mine didn’t fit, luckily, so I said I’d just sit and watch this time, thank you very much! But poor old Michael got dragged out into the centre of this room… “And it was full of girls. Hundreds of giggling girls! Well, at least ten!” Jermaine grinned.

“There seemed hundreds,” Michael confirmed. “They were all standing along the sides of the room watching. The old dear asked me to dance, so I broke into our newest number. Real cool and swinging. And then the ceiling fell in!”

“The old lady began shouting in French and Russian, “ Jermaine went on. “Saying he didn’t know one foot from another and how dreadful he was and all the time there was Michael swinging away in the centre of the room, getting crosser and crosser.”

Randy was giggling helplessly at the thought. “But why… why didn’t she like the routine if she was a dancing teacher?”

“She was a ballet teacher!” Michael groaned. “It was a ballet class. We hadn’t realized that when we booked our lessons.”

He leapt to his feet and pirouetted solemnly around the room, his feet moving like lightning. “There, that’s how she wanted me to dance. Me? Michael Joe Jackson! Can you believe it?”

“What did you do?”

“We ran, man. Boy did we ran. You didn’t see us for dust. I was still pulling on my jeans over those tight things when we got outside. And the old lady was calling after us down the street. And she wrote to dad. Said I had ‘great potential’ and should have proper lessons!’

“We almost sent him but he promised to behave nicely for years and years so we relented,” said Jermaine, with a twinkle in his eye. “Mind you, there’s still time to change our minds!”

Young Randy looked far more cheerful now and Michael’s irritable mood had vanished. The rehearsal began again and Randy was so busy thinking of Michael being a ballet dancer that he relaxed and danced as well as any of the Jackson boys.

It wasn’t till much later that he suddenly wondered if the story had been true. He knew Jermaine would never tell him and where Michael was concerned, anything could happen – and frequently did!
