The Dance Mile 2014 – Portland

Imagine meeting up with hundreds of festively dressed folks at twilight on a summer evening, and dancing your way through the streets of a major city’s downtown. Accompanied, of course, by a flatbed truck complete with a DJ, speaker system, and a dance leader who looks a lot like Elvis. And then follow up with a dance party in a major city square. This pretty much encapsulates the setting for the first-ever dance mile, held in Portland, Maine on July 13, 2013.

So much for the setting …. it was the vibe – pervasive, positive, and overwhelming – that made it a momentous experience. Follow them at:
