When someone asks you to go with them to a “dance thing,” what’s the first thing you do?

Politely demur? Go with a knee-jerk reaction and state, “hell no?”  If you immediately think of boredom and leotards, try again.

Imagine a flaming redhead with curly locks, ripped tights, ties, shirtless men and more. Watch transfixed as they move fluidly across the stage to beats that fill the space with crackling energy.
