Residents in Las Vegas, Nevada, were encouraged to join a “socially distanced” dance party in their neighborhood as a form of uplifting exercise and stress relief on Monday, April 27.
The Clark County Parks and Recreation Department said the “Dance Mobile” made its debut on Monday, blasting catchy songs as county workers trailed behind it and danced in the streets. This video shows residents joining in and busting a move with their community members.
“We just want you all to please practice social distancing, make sure that you please do all of the necessary precautions — keep your hands washed, stay inside if you can. Only a little while longer, guys. And guess what? We together are gonna flatten this curve,” a Dance Mobile worker says in the video.
The dance parties were organized as part of the In It Together Southern Nevada campaign, a hub of community resources and organizations responding to the coronavirus pandemic.
The campaign has been a collaborative effort between several Nevada agencies, such as Clark County, the City of Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the Southern Nevada Health District, and more. Credit: Clark County, Nevada via Storyful
