New Dance Craze Is All Thumbs

KAILUA, Hawaii (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – America’s latest dance craze is all thumbs – literally.

Kupono Aweau, a dancer from Hawaii who was voted off So You Think You Can Dance last Thursday (Jul. 16), may have just invented the next Macarena or Y.M.C.A.

His signature move, dubbed his “Happy Dance,” consists of sticking the thumbs up, bending at the knees, and bouncing around.

Aweau says the easy, silly dance is utterly “ridiculous,” but is guaranteed to make people smile.

He thinks the moves have the power to exude “positive energy” and could be deemed therapeutic.

Aweau himself busts out the thumb-centric dance at nightclubs and used it to loosen up backstage before performances on SYTYCD.

The quirky shaker “wouldn’t mind” if his dance became the next big craze and adds, “Let’s get on it!”

SYTYCD airs Wednesdays and Thursdays on FOX.
