UPDATE: March 19, 2015: Happy birthday to the one and only Richard Williams who turns 82 years old today! Let’s dance in his honor!

Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Thief and the Cobbler) is an undeniable animation legend, but if you’ve ever seen his DVD animation lessons, then you know he also has some slick dance moves.

A friend of mine noticed how passionate and exuberant Williams can be when he teaches animation, and edited this video tribute to the master. My pal prefers to remain incognito—something to do with being a working professional—but has allowed me to share the video with Brew readers. So here ya go…the world premiere of the Richard Williams dance video “How to Move It.”
