A fiercely competitive form of dancing.

Teams of dancers line up at opposite ends of the stadium. Possession of the ball, an irregular shaped, two-toned bladder, is the means by which dancers know it is their turn to prove themselves. The object is to run as fast as possible towards the other end of a large field, while being hunted by members of the opposite team. Any dancer with a ball who makes it all the way down to the two poles at one end of the playing space earns the right to dance, while other team members perform group versions of the same movements further down the field.

After the dance there is a customary group hug, and the game begins again.
