Indiana University Lacrosse gets down with the Harlem Shake. The Harlem Shake is a dance that originated in Harlem, New York. Since its beginnings, it has spread to other urban areas and become popular in music videos. If it looks like the team is drunk (which they aren’t) it’s because the dance was inspired by an alcoholic who would frequent basketball games at legendary Rucker Park and dance upon request. View the IU Lacrosse team take on the dance in the video below. Pretty funny!

The Hoosiers come very close to topping the Maryland Lacrosse Dancing vid. For more information on the program, visit Indiana Lacrosse and follow them on Twitter @IULax.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
