There are days you think “I feel much like a pronking Springbok!”
(Or at least, hopefully you will now.)
This gorgeous movement would stand up to florid analysis of head/spine initiation and organization, springiness of joints, and flexibility and fluidity of overall coordination. Or as David Attenborough puts it “We still don’t know why precisely they do this. The simplest answer is that they’re dancing for joy.”
(Do stay tuned so as not to miss the duo, trio, and large ensemble pronking.)
