This link hit my facebook wall yesterday, and of course, with dancing in the title, I had to click.

I know it isn’t exactly social dancing the way I know it, as a bunch of couples (or troikas occasionally) whirling around the dance floor, and exchanging partners every song.  Instead, it is social dance as in a society coming together to dance, as a form of protest.

I don’t want this to turn into a political blog by any means, or even necessarily a political post, but if you have any insight into whether you think a flash mob dance is an effective form of social protesting, or if you know other examples of it being employed, please feel free to share.
