What most people don’t know about Tupac Shakur is that he was a ballet dancer. He was a member of the 127th street ensemble, which is a Harlem based theater company.
Fact 2: There was a plague in which the only symptom was sustained dancing for days on end. The plague is referred to as the Dancing Plague of 1518. The plague started when a woman, Frau Troffea, began to dance in the streets of Strausbourg. She danced for 4 to 6 days without stopping, and gained the attention of other dancers who joined her. This was only the beginning of a dancing frenzy that began killing dozens of citizen’s from exhaustion, heart attack, and stroke.
Fact 3: In 2008 the world’s first sustainable energy dance floor was created. A sustainable energy dance floor creates energy from floor panels being compressed under the weight of dancers.

The clubs lights are entirely run from dancers taking to the floor.
