Great roundup – I wish there were more random dance battles around the world.

Just a warning that the Guardian article about Casa Diablo is written by Julie Bindel who is notoriously transphobic (http://www.bilerico.com/2008/11/julie_bindel_and_the_trans_vs_feminism_t.php) and anti-sex worker (http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2003/jul/07/tradeunions.gender) – but I’m glad Casa Diablo is getting some press.
