It got great ratings & when we "stationary" dance walked near the Park St. T, people were literally lining up rows of chairs to watch us.

Bring your cameras! Don't forget sunblock. If it rains we will post a "rain route" to keep dry.

    I also had a great time! This was co-posted to the Boston Society of Sponteneity ("SOS") . I will try to get the director-- who was the enlightened speaker at beginning of tour-- (see link above--) to post it again ASAP. Likely a different route.

    Thank you so so much! I'd love to do this again. Hopefully, I wouldn't start feeling inhibited once I get to know you all. :-)

    Fabulous! A blast! Great exercise! It was so much fun to entertain and befuddle tourists and Bostonians while moving to great music with friendly people (who were moving to their own music). I hope we do this again. I'd be up for it once a month.

    Hi Tina. The Boston Society of Spontaneity ("SOS") is in charge of this. They announced the route 2 days before the last event June 9 (photo in link above!) That is how they do stuff. A lot depends on the weather forecast. I will let ya'll know ASAP as soon as I do. Last time it was the Boston Common. It will be in central Boston.

    @ Erin: I'd bring an ipod or a mini personal CD player.
    To Isabella, for more info (no surprises necessary) click on the first link above. I was there, it was a blast and real physical fitness stuff.

    At the last meetup people had ipods (or... walkmans!?) and chose their own music to dance fitness to. Was a strange sight (I was part of it), fun and lots of exercise.
