San Jose State assistant and former dancer for MC Hammer shows off his moves during practice

Can’t touch this.

Just because you’re done with the dance game, doesn’t mean it’s done with you. San Jose State assistant Alonzo Carter stopped practice to show off his moves to his players. Now, Hammer Time!

Carter got down to “U Can’t Touch This.” It’s a dance he’s most familiar with since he was a dancer for MC Hammer before his current players were even born.

On their recent podcast, SB Nation’s Mountain West Connection recently chatted with Coach Carter on the moves, and whether or not we’ll see more moves like these in the future.

According to the East Bay Express, Carter dropped out of high school to become Hammer’s lead dancer and head choreographer. He started out as part of a dance group and followed Hammer in the ‘80s and ‘90s:

By then, Carter idolized MC Hammer. He began following the emcee wherever he performed. His devotion was soon rewarded; when MC Hammer signed his major record deal with Capitol Records, he chose Carter.

It looks like Carter hasn’t lost a step either. We hope he and his players all get together and do the Hammer Dance to celebrate victories.
