Character moving to music

I shouldn’t have really animated this dance, because it gives the illusion that defies gravity, its doesn’t really help me to learn as much about movement, physics and all that jazz
But... I like it better than the walk still. I think this exercise was more about timing the movement to sound and progression with sound.
