North Korean Mass Dance

Yesterday’s most viewed North Korea pic from my Flickr account – ladies dancing with ladies at a mass dance in Pyongyang, North Korea.  Sources informed us that all the men were out building houses in the countryside to help meet some grand initiative deadline that the government had set and was woefully behind on.  We were also told that this same initiative was requiring all the university students to work instead of attending classes for the year.

North Korean Mass Dance

A North Korean mass dance is staged to provide wholesome fun and traditional entertainment for it’s citizens.  If your  housing political network has arranged a mass dance than attendance is mandatory – unless of course you are out building houses in the countryside.  We were the only men in attendance and to the quiet amusement/embarrassment of the North Korean ladies we actually partnered up and participated .  More mass dancing pictures below.
