Cedar Park Harlem Shakes

Madi Carley

The new trend that’s become popular all over the nation, including our very own Cedar Park is the Harlem Shake. Harlem Shake stormed to number one on the US billboard chart and on YouTube. From kids just hanging out to even adults at work, people all over the U.S. are making their own version including “Sea World San Antonio: Harlem Shake,” and, “UGA Men’s Swim & Dive Harlem Shake.” Students from Cedar Park have created some of their own versions as well including woodshop, Spanish and even broadcast.

“Having taking part in the Harlem Shake recently, I see it as one of the more creative trends that have gone viral the past several years,” junior Logan Bearden said.

Bearden took part in broadcast’s version of this trend, as well as freshman Kaitlyn Kuerth who took part in one involving the freshman cheer squad.

“I think the Harlem Shake is a way for a group of people to become closer through irregular, exotic randomness and just simply puts everyone in a good mood,” Kuerth said.

Agreeing with both Bearden and Kuerth, Sophomore Peyton Blanchard had some positive things to say about the Harlem shake.

“I think it’s a creative and hilarious dance,” Blanchard said.

The Harlem Shake is trending fast and will be over just as fast, so don’t miss out on the fun. Also, don’t forget to make it out to the courtyard on Fri. March 1 and participate in Cedar Park’s very own version. Be there at 4:00 p.m. with your Harlem Shake attire.
