Dancing can be dangerous. It seems every year, a trendy new dance move makes its way out of the clubs and into the world of weddings and school dances where it can be performed by drunk moms and assistant principals who think they’re way cooler than they actually are. But aside from the obvious nerdiness that twerking or nae-naeing can inspire, there’s also a dark side. In the past few years there’s been a series of dancing accidents that sound funny at first, but once it turns out that those accidents led to dancing deaths, things get a lot darker. On this list we’ve combed through the news and discovered the darkness that lies beneath the dance moves - all for a collection of stories about people who died while dancing.

After you read the gruesome stories on this list, hopefully you’ll be inspired to be a bit safer the next time you go out with your friends.
