1500 prisoners in the philippines learned the choreography to thriller in the video above. of course it's cool to watch because 1500 people doing anything choreographed usually is. but what really impresses me about this is what a creative idea it is as an activity for inmates. i'd never been impressed with dancers until i took some hip-hop classes for fun last winter with some friends. not only was it a fun way to spend an hour moving, but it left me in as good a headspace as any of the few physical things i actually love to do. does anyone know if canadian prisons have similar programs?
