12. The Bikini Bus
Dancing to: Hardwell
Shaking one's ass is not going to make the bus come any faster, but it sure does make the wait more fun!
Update: See, Biscayne Boulevard was made for dancing
11. All About The U
Dancing to: Afrojack
Nothin' like a good air-hump fist-pump in front of 60,000 people to get the party started.
Dancing to: Krewella
Dude's just a bro doing brostep with his bros, aight. Grab a rail and hang tight, dude. These bros are rockin'.
Dancing to: Day three, live stage
Between all these wacky characters, there must be at least 30 pockets. But the head magician still can't hang onto his phone without dropping it.
8. Swag On
Dancing to: Porter Robinson
"Dance? Like, with a girl? Yeah, right. Fine, spin me once. Whoa, that's it babe. Love ya. Phew, it's tough being Triple Swag Fred."
7. Hula Girl
Dancing to: Seven Lions
Alright, we've watched this loop 37 fucking times and we still have no idea how she does this trick. Rave on, hula girl. Rave on.
6. Cranked Up
Dancing to: Flosstradamus
Trapsylvania is no place for amateurs. If your feet do not emit clouds of smoke when you dance, just take a step back and appreciate.
5. Diamond Eyes
Dancing to: Day two, main stage
Mysterious and alluring, the techno siren will draw you in with her style and moves, then eat your soul in sacrifice on the sacred altar of Beatfreakia.
4. Hammer Time
Dancing to: Flux Pavilion vs. Doctor P
It's like the ground is a typewriter and he just wrote an entire book with his feet.
3. Glown Folks
Dancing to: Green Velvet
Lots of carpe dieming going on here.
Dancing to: Madeon
Fun never gets old.
Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.
Dancing to: Drumsound & Bassline Smith
His hat either says "High" or "HGH." But performance enhancing drugs are unnecessary to have fun at Ultra.
And now, for the supersecret special bonus GIF ...
Dancing to: Knife Party
In order to see the light, you must be the light. Now go into the night. And take your glowsticks with you.
