Not be confused with cockiness, Sass is all about the attitude and confidence. It’s about how people react when you walk into a room and the realization that turning heads can actually be a good thing. How you carry yourself can be translated into your body language, and honey, everyone can see it. I mean, why else does Beyonce strike her Wonder Woman pose every time she’s on stage?
Itching to have people refer to you as a diva? Most look to dancers for inspiration when it comes to upgrading their fierceness. After all, when dancers are taught choreography, it’s their job to take the movements and totally own it. Well as it turns out, we can now look to another, even better source for inspiration: sassy Asian kids who dance.
It seems like kids nowadays are working it better than adults on many fronts– they even dress better than us! We’ve gone ahead and gathered some videos of sassy Asian kids we think everyone can learn from. Watch them take simple movements and add their own flare to it. These kids own their confidence better than most people I know.
I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly taking notes from these youngsters. Even in my 20-something years, they totally schooled me.
