It’s probably safe to say that few of us have used the phrases “dance club” and “renewable energy” in the same sentence. Enter the Sustainable Dance Club, a downright awesome project that turns fancy footwork into kilowatts to power the club’s basic utilities. The brainchild of environmental organization Enviu and Dutch architectural firm Döll, the Sustainable Dance Club project launched with a party called The Critical Mass last October in Rotterdam. So next time you’re out dancing with friends, don’t forget that all that booty shaking could be providing power for the club’s lights, speakers, and more. Check out the video to see just how the technology works.
