A few years ago I saw this dance and choreography showreel of Mark ‘Swarf’ Calape1 on a friend’s wall on Facebook. The whole video is worth a watch, but the section that starts at 1m28s was something I’d never seen before, and it’s stuck in my mind ever since.
The other day I decided to try and hunt out the clip, and found the video above. Looks like he’s been practising.
And while we’re on the subject of hat tricks, you should also check out Tahrod “Rudeboy” Smith. Magic.
A couple of years later, Calape featured as a contestant on the first UK series of So You Think You Can Dance, but they didn’t use his “Swarf” nickname, and I don’t think they ever showed any footage of him doing hat tricks, so I didn’t even realise it was him. ↩
