Everyone is invited to participate in Improv In Toronto’s 6th Annual Subway Dance Party.
This is a silent dance party on the subway.
Please bring your OWN MUSIC on an ipod, mp3 player, walkman or what have you. NO BOOMBOXES (these are illegal on the subway)
When we get on the subway we will start dancing one by one, until the whole train is dancing (seemingly to no music).
Last years 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) If ANYONE asks you to stop, listen to them. Whether it be a group leader, ttc employee, or passenger.
4) Have fun
How it works:
We will assemble by the Horseman Statue in Queens Park 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 there own subway car.
Once ready, six groups (one group per car) at a time will head to their stated subway station. 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 south, 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 stagger the number of people joining the dance, so it builds in excitement, and looks like random strangers are joining it.
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!). 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.
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. This time taking it all the way around the loop to Musuem Station.
If you’d like to meet up and talk about the mission, we’ll meet back up at the ROM for more fun times, and dancing.
As always this is going to be a lot of 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.
