During the 21st Annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC, comediennes Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson of the series Broad City paid a hilarious tribute to honoree actress Julia Louis Dreyfus. Glazer and Jacobson briefly appeared onstage to introduce a video showing how hard they worked to get the right performers for their show.
Afterwards, Glazer and Jacobson came back on stage to perform Louis-Dreyfus’ infamous “Elaine Dance” from Seinfeld alongside A Priori Dance Company and did a really amazing job considering the type of choreography with which they had to work.
The Elaine dance is one of the most difficult dance techniques in the whole world. I mean think about what we’ve been tasked with here, we’ve got to get professional, gorgeous, elegant dancers to dance some hideous moves.
