Sound Wave Block Party: 25 Funky Dance Moves in Animated GIF Form

The throng of thousands who invaded Indian Plaza in Scottsdale for the Sound Wave Block Party this past Saturday were definitely in the mood to move their bodies to the beat. And believe us, they had plenty of big beats to soak up.

Like the three previous editions of Sound Wave, which were held at Big Surf in Tempe, the event was awash in a sea of bright lights, hot sounds, and colorful partiers, not to mention a definite blithe spirit of revelry that EDM seems to encourage. And, of course, dancing, which there was an excess of during the day-long event that encompassed three stages and two nightlife venues (Maya and the WET Deck at the W Scottsdale Hotel).
