“Dancing Guy” Spotted at Columbia Heights Metro

Every now and then I get emails about a “dancing guy” but this is the first time someone has sent photo/video evidence!

“Dear PoPville,

Has anyone submitted anything on this? Looked at the blog but didn’t see an entry. Saw him again tonight – like 2nd or third time this week…”

Seems a good way to kickoff New Years celebrations:

    Kinda reminds me of “Party Boy” from Jackass.

      Or “Masturbating Guy” from the X1 bus 😀

    Great! Try a Prana Flow Yoga class with Rob Hess – http://robhessyoga.com/ – he often turns it into Trance Dance which is even wilder than this guy above – Cheers and Happy NYE All!

    I first saw them on December 4. Did a little digging and they’re part of “Love Music Hate Homophobia” https://www.facebook.com/LMHHDC & http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/evg/3459214642.html

    I believe that guy is outside of the Chinatown Metro on H St at least once a week.

    • I saw him by the Chinatown metro; will send photos to PoP!

    I love this guy!

    Watching the reaction of all the hardcore project folks to this guy is very entertaining. Waiting for the day when the Black Isrealites are there on the same day. They could have a dance/sermon battle.

    I also hope MPD maintains their presence there… i have a bad feeling he’ll be the victim of a hate crime if he wanders down the wrong block…

    • I think that already happened at Gallery Place and it was the dancing guy that got arrested. Or maybe this is a different dancing guy.

      “hard core project folks”???

      • Bad/un-pc phrasing, but sadly true & realistic demographic.

    • They were out there on opposite sides of 14th the first time I saw dancing guy. I came out of the metro, and saw the black Israelites … then across the street saw a huge crowed gathered around watching this guy dance to loud 80’s music. Made my day 🙂

  • More freaks!

    Yay!!! DC needs MORE freaks!!! Woo Hoo!

    • Not sure why dancing makes him a “freak” … but I’d agree we need more poeple like him!

      Shouldn’t have broke up that black panther meeting son.

  • His name is Queen (of course!) and he is very sweet – with positive energy that people respond too. Plus anyone dancing in 3 inch spike heels gets my respect!

    So far all the onlookers & passers by at the CH station have been friendly – though sometimes puzzled. I’ve seen bunches of local high-school type kids join in and dance.

    I love to see him – and also fear for his safety – for it wouldn’t take more than a minute for a mob of 3-4 bully a-holes to beat him to death. Hate to acknowledge that is how people are, but it is tragically true.
