Gratitude Dance

My friend, Jen, posted this on her Facebook page for all of her “Yoof” to see….well….I loved it and thought that it was a perfect Sunday post.  A little intro as written on YouTube:

There are no weekend box office charts for online videos. But if there were, at the top of nearly every list right now might well be a four-and-a-half-minute video called “Dancing.” In just a month since its online release, it has been viewed by more than ten million people. After 14 months of traveling in 42 countries, it’s the story of a guy named Matt doing the gratitude dance with a cast of thousands around the globe … from the streets of Mumbai to a rock formation in Ireland to a tulip field in Netherlands!



  1. Great post! My video said there was an error, so I went to YouTube and looked it up. Love it! Thank you. You are such a great person!

    • So glad you looked it up on YouTube. I love it!! I know there are tons of people who have posted it but I just loved the whole idea! Favorite dance was the New Guinea one!

  2. Wow–isn’t that moving? Amazing video. Thanks for sharing it–feels like a global embrace.

  3. I watched this a little while back and LOVED it!! I think its on my FB wall burried somewhere in all the Farmville stuff. 😉 I would sure enjoy this guys job, what a great way to keep in shape and travel and meet new people. It was such a joy to watch, thanks for posting it, I watched it again, its such a great video that makes me smile everytime.

    • It totally makes me smile, too, Michele!! Glad it was worth watching again for you!

    • Michele—I am so glad you thought it was worth watching again!!! I loved it. I think it is just one of those things that once you watch it it just makes you feel better so I am glad I found it. I can pull it out later when I need a smile!!!

  4. This was great! Wow! I loved seeing all the people join in with him in the various countries–my favorite: Quebec with the umbrellas. Made me laugh! I hadn’t seen this one before–makes me want to dance now!
