Steven Seagal Dance: Watch Action Movie Star Perform His Version Of A Chechen Dance [VIDEO]

By iSports Times Staff, Posted: 06/07/13 11:42AM EDT

Steven Seagal took some artistic license with his recent interpretation of a traditional Chechen dance. 

In a video tellingly titled "Stephen Seagal Epileptic Seizure," the martial artist, sporting a beard and sunglasses, can be seen doing something resembling a cross between a kata and kneading pizza dough opposite a traditional Chechen dancer. At the end, a camera man -- who recognizes that he's seeing history in motion -- can be seen entering the frame to snap a shot of Seagal. Seagal ends the affair by giving the female dancer a traditional Japanese bow before she steps back into line.

Seagal joins Dennis Rodman on a short list of celebrities looking to add international diplomacy to their resumes. Seagal, reportedly a friend of both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov, had been arranging a meeting between a U.S. congressional mission and the foreign leaders. 

"The CODEL's visit to Chechnya was facilitated by Steven Seagal. He has an established friendship with Putin and others in the Russian government and assisted in accommodating the CODEL's request to visit the region," said Tara Setmayer, a spokeswoman for Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., according to Politico. The congressional delegation -- which is looking into circumstances surrounding the Boston bombings -- ultimately decided to leave without Seagal due to concerns about safety.  

It's not clear whether or not the dance was part of Seagal's diplomatic mission. Seagal has reportedly been helping Putin promote new physical fitness requirements for Russian children, per National Post. The requirements are based on an old Stalin-era program called GTO. Putin claims that Russian children lag behind many other nations in physical fitness. Putin is, himself, a martial arts enthusiast and has been known to give demonstrations of his judo skills.

Perhaps Seagal's moves will inspire a new dance-based fitness craze?
