Young people dance on a tank – level 2

Harlem Shakes have hit the internet in all different shapes and sizes in recent weeks. But Harlem shaking on a World War II memorial was a step too far for Russian police. They arrested 5 people for dancing on a tank and uploading the video to YouTube.

The Harlem Shake starts with the solo dancer who is joined by others after a short time. People use funny things and choose interesting places for their videos.

Interesting words: memorial (something, usually a stone with words on it, that reminds somebody who died), upload (put on the internet).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
