Unless you dwell at the bottom of a hole in the center of the Earth, you’ve at least heard of the Harlem Shake, which involves a lone dancer bopping to a track by DJ Baauer. About 10 seconds into the song, the dancer is suddenly surrounded by a crowd of dancing people in elaborate costumes or props. The Harlem Shake is strange because it’s not done on a dance floor of any kind. It’s recorded in homes, at work, at school or wherever the notion takes you, and then broadcast online. The original Harlem Shake, which dates back to the '80s, was performed by Albert Boyce to entertain crowds at street ball games.
