Alright... I have decided that one of the things I must do at Burning Man this year is dance the Party Rock Shuffle with a huge group. I know that this is going to happen at some point on the Playa so it is just a matter of learning the dance and practicing. Then I started searching to see who is organizing this already and couldn't find anything!
SO LIKE A GOOD BURNER, I'M VOLUNTEERING TO HELP MAKE IT HAPPEN!
What is Party Rock? What is shufflin'?
Watch this video first (already cued up to the choreographed dance we will do): http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... Pj8#t=218s
We can all learn and practice the dance with this video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtaGmyqk9vY
HOW WE MAKE THIS HAPPEN
1) Everyone needs to learn the dance, and practice. Since this can't really be done over the Internet this is how I suggest we do it.
a) Watch the videos above and start practicing at home.
b) Now you need to find others to practice with in your area. Contact your regionals and see if you can organize a local group.
c) Consider practicing and doing a performance at your regional burn if you haven't already had yours. I am currently organizing Portland, Oregon, and we will do a performance / practice at our regional burn SOAK.
2) Organize for on Playa
a) Regional coordinators, get a hold of me and we can start to work out details.
b) I will work with the BORG to get the event registered in the Who/What/Where guide once we have figured out the best time / place / date.
c) Right now I am thinking about doing this at Center Camp like the Thriller has been done so many years prior.
3) We might want to consider taking this to other places on playa flash mob style. This wedding: viewtopic.php?f=282&t=55040
is requesting a flash mob crash it. How fun would that be?
4) Maybe one of the camps on Playa would like to host dance lessons on playa before the dance so others can learn last minute too?
Who's down with joining me? Thinking if local groups can meet once a week with individual practice for about 15-30 minutes a night will have us looking like pros in just a few weeks. Then you can dance to the song every time you here it up until you leave for the playa and we will all be super ready.
Every day M Shufflin'
