Peter Sharp Starts A Train Dance Party

Man Starts A Train Dance Party

Australian Peter Sharp wants you to get into a social groove on your commute.

Sharp suited up and arranged to meet eight of his friends on a train car in Perth, Australia. When their train pulled into the station, Sharp got on and got ready to get down.

Peter Sharp Starts A Train Dance Party“Hey, guys, I don’t want money,” he announced to his seated friends and the commuters in the car who were still unaware of what was about to take place. “I just want to spread a little bit of happiness. So I’m going to do that today by starting a small dance party.”

Then Sharp started the music, and one by one, his friends — and the amused commuters — joined in on the fun.

“We were totally blown away by how instantly people started to smile, laugh and get involved,” he told The Huffington Post via email. “We had a 60-year-old woman jump up out of her seat and exclaim, ‘THIS IS GREATT!!!, DO YOU DO THIS OFTEN!?'”

But Sharp’s goal wasn’t just to make his fellow passengers smile.

“I don’t know if you’ve noticed it, but on the train it’s like this crazy void in space and time… where people just disconnect from life and the opportunities that are just sitting right next to them,” he said in his Aug. 21 video announcing the dance party.

“It will be through the joyous movements of dance and play that we will broaden minds, broaden perspectives as to what is really possible each and every single day,” he added.

    Two things stand out to me from this very happy video: those who willingly join in to dance on the train, and those who won’t allow themselves to do so. The latter look down, try – in vain no doubt – to continue reading, and in so doing, miss out on what could have been the happiest they’ve been in some time. I hope I’m witness to this type of window of happiness in the future; you can be sure I’d be one of the first to get up and dance. Good times!
