Subway Dance Party 2010


Everyone is invited to participate in Improv In Toronto’s 4th Annual Subway Dance Party.

This is a silent dance party on a subway. All participants come with their OWN MUSIC, on an ipod or mp3 player. We will get on the subway and one by one start dancing, until the whole train is dancing. And yet seemingly to no music

Last summer’s Subway Dance Party:

All the information you need is below. Please read it all so this can be pulled off without any problems!

Requirments For Participation:
1) Willing to dance on the subway
2) Pretend you don’t know what’s going on
3) Have fun

When: Saturday, June 5th at 3:00 PM, Sharp! (Over by around 5:00)
Where: Meet at the intersection of King and Bay St.
Bring: A metropass/tokens and an Ipod or Mp3 Player
Wear: Normal summer clothes

Feel free to confirm your attendance on the facebook event.

How it works:
We will assemble by the TD building at the intersection of King and Bay at 3 PM. Please be on time. Feel free to be early. After all participants have arrived we will be splitting everyone into groups. Each group will be getting on a separate subway.

Once ready, one group at a time will head to their assigned subway stations. Do not talk to others once you enter the subway system. No one knows each other. You will then wait for a train to arrive going north on the Yonge line, and all board your assigned cars (follow your team leader). We may let one train go before entering to make sure everyone is ready.

Sit in the car as you normally would. Put your headphones in, and get your music ready. From this point, you will have been told when to join in. We hope to stagger the number of people joining the dance, so that it looks like random strangers are joining it. We want this to look gradual.

If anyone asks you why you’re dancing, tell them that “you just felt like joining in” or “you are on your way to a dance tryout” (or something along those lines, be original!).

We will exit the train at Eglinton Station. Pay attention so you don’t miss this stop. Upon arriving we’ll completely stop dancing and walk off the train like nothing happened. We will repeat the mission back going south. If you’d like to meet up and talk about the mission, we’ll meet back up at Dundas Square for more fun times, and dancing.

For dancing in general, please be considerate that other people are commuting. We’re trying to spice up their day, and give them something to laugh at, not annoy them.

As always this is going to be fun, it’s exciting how many people participate every year. You may bring along friends, but make sure to invite them to this event, so they get a chance to read all of these instructions.
