What is The Dance Mile?

The Concept

The Dance Mile is a chance to get outside, be active, and celebrate the city with friends. This Interactive Dance Experience will guarantee you the time of your life. Grab your crew, don your costumes, and crush a mile of serious booty shaking!

The Dance Mile is exactly what you think – 5280 feet of awesomeness. Thousands of people will be led by a mobile DJ, spinning a playlist that is guaranteed to get you moving. The mile travels along city streets (closed to traffic) and concludes at an exclusive finish line dance party with performances and contests.

What makes The Dance Mile so great is that ANYONE can do it! It is all about cutting loose and being connected to everyone around you (and probably make some new friends). Not only do you have immense amounts of fun, you’ll have amazing pictures to share!

The Specifics

The Dance Mile starts with bib decorating and interactive dance performances to get you warmed up. The actual Mile kicks off just before sunset and takes upwards of one hour! The celebration continues at the finish line for additional performances and the DJ spinning into the night.

All participants receive an Official Dance Mile neon tank top, plenty of swag and goodies, a personalized bib number, great entertainment, closed city streets, participation in contests, and hours of non-stop dancing.

The Rules

We want to spread the joy of dancing in the streets, but we need to be respectful of the community around us. So, as a registered participant, you agree to the following:

Please wear appropriate outfits. Remember, your picture is going to be all over Facebook/Instagram/ Twitpic/Flickr/Google for eternity after the Dance Mile!

Please keep a positive attitude and don’t give anyone a hard time. The Dance Mile is for one thing, and one thing only – FUN. No making fun of people, no criticizing dance moves, no making inappropriate or harassing comments.

Wear the bib number you were assigned. Since the Dance Mile is a permitted event on city streets, it is critical that we have a record of who is participating. We do this with bib numbers.

NO RUNNING*, NO STROLLERS, NO DOGS, (ROLLER SKATES ALLOWED)

REQUIRED AGE – Adults (13+) Kids (5-12)  – No Infants or Toddlers Please

*That does not include doing the Running Man.
