Finger Tutting

Finger tutting is a type of dance that’s a bit different from others. Instead of using the flow of the entire body, as you might expect from traditional styles such as the waltz or the cha-cha, all movement tends to remain in the fingers and hands. Some ”variants” (I use this term loosely as finger tutting isn’t a codified art form with its own genres and sub-genres, so to speak) also involve the arms and even the head, but the mesmerising motion of the fingers is always the star of the show, what with their incredibly flexible bends and apparent adherence to some kind of invisible grid.

Here’s a video of somebody practicing this fascinating street art (plenty of other practitioners and even tutorials can be found on YouTube as well):
