Several weeks ago, The World did a story about dance clubs popping-up in Europe for one hour, during lunchtime. (Basically people can swing by an alcohol-free, make-shift dance club at noon. Organizers even provide free lunches!)
While we don’t quite have anything like this in Michigan, we do have events where people can enjoy free music and get their dance on—if they want to.
In Ann Arbor there’s a free outdoor concert series during the summer, called Sonic Lunch. The indie electronic band Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (from Detroit) recently played a show to a packed house in Liberty Plaza. Several people danced near the front of the stage, and at least half the crowd raised their hands when the band asked, “How many of you are here on your lunch break?”
