This is an ongoing project to document a growing group of people who gather weekly to dance outside, on the streets of Lisbon. There is almost no organization, the meetings are scheduled on the internet and you just need to show up and dance.
They dance on the streets only for the fun and pleasure of dance.
There are no fixed pairs, everybody dances with everybody. It is even considered rude to dance more than two musics with the same partner.
«I attend dance classes and come to these outdoor practices to keep my rhythm. Dancing is a very positive activity and it's a lot more liberating to dance on the street. You feel free and so focused that you forget the people around you». Says Manuel, a 54 year old engineer, a regular presence on these outdoor meetings.
