If you think that Michael Jackson invented the Moonwalk, think again. Now don't get me wrong, MJ took it to another level with style and grace; however, he actually learned the move from Shalimar backup dancer Jeffrey Daniel. He was a former Solid Gold dancer renowned in the R&B/dance community. He attracted attention with what was referred to as "the backslide" before teaching it to Michael.
So did Daniel invent the Moonwalk? I beg to differ after seeing this "way back" footage of dancer Bill Bailey.
