I came across the following story this week and haven’t been able to stop shaking my head since.
You know that saying, “Dance like no-one’s watching”? Well apparently in Toronto the police are keeping a close watch on anyone caught dancing in public, especially while doing their job. We can’t have a world in which people are dancing on the job, can we?
Kathleen Byers, a 64 year-old “dancing crossing guard” has a bit of dance fever and has been bringing cheer to the neighbourhood she serves for the past eight years. The police however have no been as easily entertained as they want Ms. Byers to cease her dancing, citing safety concerns despite her clean safety record.

Hey Toronto Police, even cops can dance and still get the job done! If you don’t believe me, maybe this guy’s traffic directing moves will change your mind…… Yes, even police can dance.
But if you really want to have fun on the job, put smiles on millions of faces and become a YouTube sensation, you’ll be really inspired by the fun these police officers are having……they are hilarious.
And just have a look at all of these folks who aren’t dancing on the job. Doesn’t look too fun does it? They are bored, unhappy and very undancey. Yeah, the world needs more people who look like that..NOT!
I think it’s far more dangerous to have a mayor that smokes crack than it is to have a crossing guard that dances. Just a thought there. As far as I know, dancing has never killed anyone. I do know, however, that the lack of dancing has killed many, in spirit.
Ms. Byers deserves to be celebrated in the community as a true leader, just like this dancing guy. She’s simply got an infectiously inspiring case of boogie fever and quite frankly, I hope that it starts going around. Real soon.
Now you’ll have to excuse me but I’ve been hit with the fever too…
