Improv Everywhere's Surprise Ballroom Dancing in Busy Midtown Crosswalks

The team at Improv Everywhere — the organizers behind the annual No Pants Subway Ride — recently threw a surprise ballroom dance party in a crowded Midtown crosswalk near Penn Station.

For our latest mission, pedestrians in a busy New York crosswalk begin ballroom dancing one by one as they “accidentally” bump into their partners. This project took place on the crosswalk in front of Penn Station on 7th Avenue, one of the busiest spots in the city. We staged the mission several times, with the performance repeating at each change of the light and always finishing before the “Don’t Walk” countdown clock reached zero.

Check out the accompanying article for more backstory on the stunt and the dancers.
