DC Needs Danceoffs

What DC needs is danceoffs. I really want to live in a world where strangers can dance challenge other strangers and you know what, it'd be considered perfectly normal. Dance skills are like social skills: you have to practice, but once you get going you develop your own style and eventually get really good at it. Or not. But, unlike social skills, you ALWAYS get an A+ for dance effort.

Danceoff needs to replace all other forms of human to human contact. Neighbor's party too loud? Don't call the cops. DANCEOFF. No rules Tuesday? DANCEOFF. Slow-walking tourists blocking the sidewalk? No more passive aggressive "Excuuuuuse me!" DANCEOFF. 20 minute wait for a late night train. Definitely DANCEOFF. Someone's car blocking the bike lane? DANCEOFF. OK, you get it right?

My dancing style is a cross between Robyn and Tight Eyes, honed at top shelf dance academies like Neal The Angel's 80s Party at Club Heaven, various Friday nights at Black Cat back stage, and late night in-front-of-the-computer critical study of routines like the one below, which I legit have 90% memorized. See you on the street corner! And be ready!
