There were a whole lotta moves being shown off at this year's Dirty Disco. Some got funky, others were funny, and a few were downright freaky at the annual outdoor dance party and rave, which took place within the rodeo arena at Rawhide Western Town in Chandler.

There was a flurry of fist-pumping to be seen, of course, as well as a multitude of stomping, strutting, thrashing, bouncing, bopping, and head-bouncing. Pretty much everyone was moving to the bass and beats being laid down by Dirty Disco's lineup of guest DJs, including Getter, HeRobust, and Wasted Penguinz.

It was also a dirty affair, both literally (since those in attendance were kicking up plenty of dust in the with their moves) and figuratively (since there were loads of grinding, twerking, and rump-shaking going on).

Needless to say, there were a lot of people following their own personal muses at Dirty Disco, and it not only helped add to the overall atmosphere of the party but made for some fun people watching.

Here's a look at those who were getting into the groove at the event, as well as a few who caught our eye.
