    ElecTRONica Dance Circles Broken Up - Why?

    So Sunday, my mother and I made a trip up to DCA to check out ElecTRONica, Tron being one of our favorite movies.

    Overall, it was TONS of fun (she loved playing Centipede at Flynn's!), but one part of the night left me confused. Of course, during every dance party, there is a circle built around a talented dancer breakdancing or something of that sort. When we went, two security guards watched the dancer for a while before going into the circle and pulling him out, escorting him from the area. The circle that was made wasn't blocking anyone's path, there wasn't any "naughty" dancing, but we weren't sure why as well as all the other people around us who were booing the security guards. Did he break a rule of some sort?

    He probably snuck into the park just for ElecTRONica?

    They would probably stop him if he was dancing in a manner which could cause injury for liability reasons. I have no idea why they would remove him from the area though.

    I think this is the reason. Isn't there a similar rule for the tomorrow land terrace?

    ^That is probably correct. Or my guess is that Disney doesn't like guests outstaging them. Something similar happened during glowfest. I saw 2 dancers go really all out in their dancing. The guy even picked up the girl and throwing her around! And the CM had to cut in and ask them to stop.

    When we were there for Glowfest, one of my friends was doing back walk overs and aerials, and the only time a CM said something to her was that she needed to keep her shoes on. Other times, I heard they didn't want people dancing, so who knows exactly why, except perhaps like others mentioned, safety.
    "Look there she goes, that girl is so peculiar...with a dreamy, far-off look, and her nose stuck in a book..." Yep, that would be me!

    I tend to post in a thread and forget to check it ever again, or even worse, I kill it. Yay me.

    I worked Glowfest guest control. We were told not to allow any breakdancing, for safety and liability type stuff. My guess as to why a breakdancer would be escorted out is if he was asked repeatedly to stop and he did not cooperate.

    I used to work at Tomorrowland Terrace. The rule was that you were not allowed to leave both feet at the same time.
