#ArtofSeating - Dances with Chairs!

Tweet your comments to @RAHReynolda

In anticipation of November 6th's Reynolda Thursday after-hours, when students of the UNCSA School of Dance will perform a new work incorporating chairs in the choreography, we've put together some classic videos that incorporate dance, lyrics, set design, and of course, CHAIRS! 

What's your top pick for best pop-music video with chairs? What did we miss? Add your comments below or tweet to @RAHRreynolda!

Don't just sit there ... plan to join us this Thursday for Reynolda After Hours!

Backstreet Boys is my fave ... but that George Strait number is creepy!
