Understand? What is in a dance? Dance is rhythmic body movement. For example, Vienna dance, or classical waltz. Dislocated back. Who? Not important. It’s a three-beat movement with simultaneous
rotation around the partner. Jazz instead of classical style is… Oh, Come on! There are three main styles: atomic,
Canadian and double Hamburg style. Can we skip the theory? Ok. You’re the man, I’m the girl. Hands off! Paw the girls, not me! What should I do? Like this.[music] First of all, what are you doing with your hands?[music] Any chick will hit you if you’re dancing that way[music] And, now, with the right foot.[music] Hold yourself more straight! [music] Move your legs and close your mouth![music] Feel free. Like that. A sportsman? Yeah.[music] Now squat a little..and turn around! Here you don’t need to be stronger-faster-higher. You just need…drive. Well…energy. From here.[music] I like boogie-woogie,
I’m dancing boogie-woogie every day. [music] To become a real dandy, [music] You need to know how to dance right [music] You should know,
what the canadian style is, [music] It’s all serious here,
it’s not the Polka or the Quadrille. [music] There is the atomic and
triple Hamburg style too.[music] now give it a go by yourself…[music] You like to boogie-woogie.[music] You like to boogie-woogie.[music] You like to boogie-woogie.[music] You like to boogie-woogie.[music] You like to boogie-woogie.
You are dancing boogie-woogie every day. Hello Son… What are you doing in this house in our absence? We`re just dancing. In a country where not even a loud sneeze is allowed,
so as not to fall under the penal code … He’s just dancing Still, the article “the worship of the West”
has not been repealed. Please, take a look at yourself in the mirror… Even your hair breaks this code. Well, OK… Who is this young man? My Comrade? Why do you think we are so simple? Bory.. This young man has the appearance of
secret police. But why do you suspect anybody and everybody? And do you know what’s this?
And why it’s here? These are the necessary things for a man in jail. Uncle Adolf was sent to prison only
because of his politically wrong name! And aunt Fira went there… Because she put Stalin’s portrait
in front of the toilet. But they didn’t even explain to me
why I was in prison. But these impressions in me … I’ll remember for the rest of my life. But Dad! It`s impossible to live such way! From this locked door,
with that damned suitcase! You`re a doctor, you should understand it! It’s an endless mental supression,
that will lead to the disintegration of personality! Bory What, mum? If you do not feel sorry for yourself,
then at least have pity on us, with father. Son, aren’t your pants too tight? And you have tried this stuff… Gel, before? All of a sudden rain…
Or a street sweeper… And..it’ll tumble down. Mels. What? Are you crazy? About what? Crisis occurance in the U.S. economy. Who are you?
Are you going outside like this? Of course. Unloading wagons at
night will not be in vein. Father, tell him! Well what? I like it! In the village, we also used
to dress up to scare girls. Sometimes we made people around have a goosebumps. Hello Hello, Misha Hello Hello What’s up, Vitek? I won’t get laid by a dandy! Alright, Lena, don’t ask me

Hey, man, do you know where
can I bye a saxaphone? Maybe you need a machine gun too? Interested in getting a saxaphone? I am. If it doesn’t work out, it’s not my fault. There’s a Dandy. He’s asking for a saxaphone. Hello Good Day. How old are you, young man? Twenty. And you still don’t know in
what amasing country we live? Bayan is permissible, accordion is not permissible Clarinet is a correct instrument. And sax is equated with a cold steel – a gun. Come back in 10 years When jazz will be played on morning
perfomances in kindergardens.. And then we’ll speak. Listen, I understood you.
But I need it now. I have money with me. Mamba and Twist, Jimmy, Foxtrot and Tango I played them many times in my life I’m a captain, a very high rank. of a rotting boat, named, “Jazz”.

You’re a girl! You better take off your komsomol sign! Katya, it will be easier for you if we walk on different
sides of the street and meet at your place. No, I don’t need to. I just want to know, how do you feel

for normal Soviet clothes. Then you’ll go to the barber
and change you hair style… to the ideologically right style cut And second, tomorrow you’ll see your
friends for the last time. Sorry for the cynicism, but these are the rules. And you should conform to these rules
or you can work in the factory. I used to dance in halls too at your age And, believe me, that your silly hanging out on Broadway… is just a bad made parody on what we had. Infantile diseases have to be had in childhood. And third? Attention, recording is on. Nothing serious. You must marry. Parting with chicks. Take 1. Who? Girls, your part. Only with Betty!

Komsomolets [Mels] Biryukov. Mels – rise! There was a Soviet student, Mels. And now we see… Dandy – Mel. It would seem, only one letter,
true comrades?, is so small. But let us remember, what is in the name Mels. This is an abbreviation of our sacred names. Marx… Engels… Lenin… Stalin. And now, let’s think … What does it mean to carelessly
discard the letter “S”? He used to live among us, we were stepping side by side. He was an honest guy, a simple hero, But truth can’t be hidden, his hour has come He reveals his savage teeth He reveals his savage teeth. Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. You dared to encroach upon the holy of holies, Where are your ideals? You spit on them! You sold yourself to our enemy for bright rags You easily desert your conscience and honour. But you will not win, our chain will never break Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. You dare not dance to the music of West, Don’t dare be a fool, don’t betray us Such a person like you should not be near us, When we march – we march as one Our Party is our mother, our Komsomol is our father! Hey you there. Stand Still!
Good boy. We don’t sing to someone else’s tune. Our joyful bugle plays – awake up! Bound with one chain, Connected with one aim Bound with one chain, Connected with one aim. Here is no place for scoundrels and scams, Here is no place for scoundrels and scams, Here the choir sings, swimming with the flow. Here we march as one, it’s unity we love We are happy just to go without you, And to be! Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim. Bound with one chain, Connected by one aim.

And laying stylish ladies. Man Queit, I’ve already asked, be quiet! Do you know about Bob? Your dad can’t help? No. They took Betty way from Moscow I know. And Dryn was sent to the army Yeah. He is crazy, He went to military
registration in his cool clothes. In his shoes, with that hair. So they’ve put
him in a submarine for 5 years Tell me about America. About America… About America… This is an american style. What style? You look like a slob. What are you talking about? Quality! Touch it! And label? It’s more important what’s inside. If person is free, he’ll dress easy . Mel I have some bad news for you There are no dandies. How can it be? Just like that – none. If we walk on the real Brodway like this… we’ll be taken by psychiatrist after few blocks. Mel, there are no dandies there. Get out of here. Mel Get out. Mel Get lost. But we are here. Do not chase us, Mister, from the entrance. We’re not gonna sing so loud anymore. We’re not gonna drink, swear or smoke. But if you want to do this by your own,
please, don’t invite us. We’re saying goodbye to him today. I thought, that we had at least 5 years in reserve. I was so sure, that we had enough time to drink beer and talk. But I just see your back,
with a sign “Don’t miss me”. Wait, stay for one more day. Goodbye, my friend You’re leaving so suddenly You’re leaving without saying goodbye. You’re leaving unexpectedly. Well, goodbye, my friend. You know, all is not so bad. This style defeats fear. This is a wonderful wicked funny era. don’t turn us to dust. Let us remember these people. And the sharp edge of vinyl. And may love save us. Good-bye my friend You’re leaving so suddenly You’re leaving without saying goodbye. You’re leaving unexpectedly. Goodbye dear friend. Subtitles – Mark Hamilton
