Cirque du Soleil gives us some real head-scratchers sometimes—we'll never understand that ginormous snail in Mystere. But its latest concept is one we totally get and are pumped to see: Michael Jackson's music and choreography with Cirque's bendy acrobats.
"Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour" will try to showcase the King of Pop's legacy with eye-catching visuals, dance and tunes. The show will delve into Jackson's inner world, exploring his love for music, dance, fairy tales, magic and nature. And it's coming the US soon.

Okay, so you've probably already wasted a couple minutes this week watching the viral video of the female Cebu Pacific flight attendants performing the flight safety briefing to the tune of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, complete with dance moves, but now that a male version has popped up, it's time to watch again.
In this newest video, you can see three male flight attendants dancing their safety briefing to "The Safety Dance" on another Cebu Pacific flight. Just so we're all clear here, these videos are done by Cebu Pacific and the plane is at cruising altitude during the performance; heck, even the seatbelt signs have already been turned off.
Check out the first, female FA one, below.
If you see people breaking into dance at the Terminal 2 baggage claim at San Diego International Airport, it's because they are overjoyed at getting their luggage back. The baggage-claim boogieing is part of the airport's à Breve arts program.
The airport's been doing arts programming since 2003, but dance shows appeared only sporadically until around 2006. Now there's a dance performance by a local company once a quarter. On Tuesday, modern dance troupe Eveoke Dance Theatre took over the space, the first time the group performed in an airport.
Chicago is trying to prevent people from hibernating this winter by enticing them to boogie on down at the new Chicago Winter Dance Festival, which debuts this month at Millennium Park. Best of all, you can shake it for free.
Modeled after the city's super-popular SummerDance series, the month-long festival offers an hour of dance lessons and time afterward to work your new skills. But the festival will add another perk by allowing you to show off your moves at the McCormick Tribune Ice Rink with skating lessons, ice dancing demonstrations and nighttime themed ice parties.
We've all seen it and thought it the weirdest/awesomest thing ever: the prisoners who perform the full dance routine for Michael Jackson's Thriller in the prison yard. Back in July 2007 when this video hit YouTube, it took the world by storm and now has garnered over 38 million views. We're sure we're not the only ones to wonder exactly where this prison with rhythm is, and thanks to a little digging, we've discovered its location.
Although it could probably become a tourist destination if the prison was open to giving performances, we doubt there are any plans for that happenso long as they've still got access to YouTube.

Every November, dance aficionados head to Chicago for the city's month-long boogie festival, Dance Chicago to see everything from ballroom to ballet to clogging to hip-hop. This year marks the 15th anniversary of Dance Chicago, and while you can expect some good dancing, the fest is changing it up this year.
The biggest change is that the festival is leaving its home base of the Athenaeum Theatre and holding performances in venues all over the region, including the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts in Skokie, Theatre Building in Chicago and Music Institute of Chicago's Nichols Concert Hall in Evanston. Another difference is that there are fewer acts this year, though more than 130 companies will perform. Tickets cost $20 to $25. Here are our fest picks:
