Alfonso Ribeiro Reveals The Origin Of His “Carlton Dance” From The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air
If you were a fan of 'The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' you probably remember the 'Carlton Dance.' If you're a little hazy trying to recall it, don't worry, Alfonso Ribeiro did it recently on Dancing With The Stars. But, where exactly did the 'Carlton Dance' originate from?
According to The Des Moines Registar, Alfonso says he saw in the TV script, it said "Carlton dances," so he created it using the idea of Eddie Murphy's 'White Man Dance' and the dance Courtney Cox did on stage to Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing In The Dark." He felt it fit the character perfectly, and now he gets asked to do it every day since the show ended in 1996.
Relive the memory of the 'Carlton Dance' below.
