Dance of the Day: In the Streets

You can dance if you want to; you can leave your friends behind.

If your friends don't dance, then they can at least enjoy these photographs by Jordan Matters.

Matters has spent the last few years taking pictures of people dancing in American cities. His new book, Dancers Among Us, features about a hundred dancers busting moves from Seattle to the New York Island.

Check out this video of Matters working with dancers on the shots:
