I think dancing like this is called mobile clubbing in the UK and there was a huge one in November --think it is on Youtube.

this was the best event so far in Toronto. There were a LOT of people.

So, Mandy, there is a room full of people all listening to their own music. Jacking is when someone comes up to you and you wire into each other's music. So he gets to dance to my favourite french canadian dance music and what does he have? Prince! the tiny perfect musician who just happens to live in toronto now, who I have not listened to for ages...I was asked a lot. guess you want to know what a grey haired woman rocks out to.

Flashmobbing is great - there's also flashgigging that is starting to happen a lot in London. A van turns up, swings open the doors and there's a band inside playing. Then they drive off before they're arrested. Happened a lot in the summer

swamprose says:

mama! flash anything is good. and leaving before you're arrested also works.
