Note: Jump to the :35 mark for the dancing.

First, a question: why do people in leadership positions in Dallas feel its a good idea to dance in public? Because it's not. You would think they would have learned that after this video, which was apparently so embarrassing it was pulled from YouTube, but no. It didn't stop Mayor Mike, and it didn't stop new DISD superintendent Mike Miles.

He was welcoming teachers and other district employees to this morning's convocation -- the one many weren't thrilled about, and must have felt the need to make it entertaining. Whatever the case, you can see the results above as recorded by NBC 5.

I've definitely seen worse, but still. Can I go ahead and propose a blanket ban on dancing by public officials within the city of Dallas? Is that something we can all get behind? For the good of the city?

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
