G20 police officers in Brisbane, Australia accept 'The Nutbush' dance challenge and bust out some impressive moves in unison with the Tina Turner classic blaring in the background. Filmed outside of Irish Murphy's pub in the downtown core during last week's summit. Credit to 'leahlicence'.
The Nutbush is a dance categorized as a line dance, performed to Tina Turner's song "Nutbush City Limits" and has gained massive popularity in Australia.
In the 1950s, the dance was known well."The Madison". Inspired by Tina Turner's song, a variation of the dance emerged again as "The Nutbush" in the 1970s disco era. A comparison of the step sheets, however, does not support the conclusion the dances are the same.
The song of the same name by Tina Turner is generally recognised as being 'the song' to which the dance is performed. The dance is generally performed by a group of people both male and female at a social function. Also, the dance is performed with the dancers roughly in a box configuration, like that of a chess board.
