The origin of the Gundy dance
Do you still find the dance entertaining? Because I do.
But where did such a move come from?
Chapel, of all places.
Gundy said his desire to dance was inspired by watching players sing and dance at chapel the night before each game. That dancing then made its way to the OSU locker room, with Gundy participating on occasion.
“They sing and they dance—more singing than dancing at that service. But they’ve won games before and they’ve expressed themselves and their enjoyment though dancing around the locker room,” Gundy said. “I haven’t seen all the video, but if you look at the (beginning) Kye Staley and Hubert (Anyiam) and several of them, they started it. And a few years ago, I started dancing with them a little bit, and they get a kick out of it when the coach dances.”
And people are already asking the coach to “teach (them) how to Gundy.”
“I’ve had several people text me about dance lessons and all that–that’s it for me,” Gundy said. “It would be like a seven-second lesson. That’s my only move.”
Should I mention to Gundy the next time I see him that I have almost 20 years of competitive dance training?
