Dance Mob Extravaganza Cambridge

    THIS IS GOING TO BE A PARTY!

    Weather: (we have done many Meetup outdoor events in the past & this is the most accurate forecast)-- people aren't wimping out & they shouldn't. 
    http://www.timeanddate.com/weather/usa/cambridge/hourly

    Co posted to 2 other major Meetup groups also.
    120 street dancing people already "going" between the 3 groups. There is no rain date, if it rains come dance between the rain drops or do umbrella dance manuevers.

    This was absolutely magical last year -- a great free for all dance festival, kind of like a dream. The top picture kind of sums it up.

    We meet at 7:15 to introduce each other at the Field, that is your Meetup opportunity! We won't be dancin' until around 8:30, when we admire the light displays at dusk.

    After we start dancin' it'll be very hard to find the group/ stay together. Flashing bike lights encouraged, it really helps to add to the atmosphere.


    The whole Square seems to move to the beat which ricochets all over the place in a kind of very cool laid back thudding way. 

    NOTE! Event ends at 11 PM sharp. Last year that's when it had become packed & nobody wanted to leave, so be prepared.

    MBTA: Red Line to Central Square.

    This event is free and open to the public.
    DJ spun & blasted out loud music.

    Amit,
    According to the forecast link (posted in the description) the chance of rain is 1 in 2. How does that amount to 90%? Do tell.

    Vi, (reply to comment)
    The music is usually funky cover- based familiar stuff. The key is that it has a beat & is danceable. It can be a little "old school," I admit, even disco. The thing is that everybody loves it & there's a DJ who can keep people dancin', kind of like he's watching over them.
