We’ve heard of a lot of weird exercise trends, but dancing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the early hours of the morning might be the absolute strangest.
And yet, starting tomorrow, you can take such a class hosted by the Monica Bill Barnes & Company. Participants pay $35 for the privilege of dancing two miles in the empty museum surrounded by priceless pieces of art.
The New York Times, the New Yorker and Vogue all wrote (rather pretentious) articles about the class, but really, we think everything you need to know about it is demonstrated in this video. Set to the Bee Gee’s “Staying Alive,” it shows you Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass dancing around the museum in sparkly dresses and sneakers, as a trail of people decked out in athleisure suits follow along. They aren’t exactly good, but it’s mesmerizing watching them and you don’t even need to break a sweat.
