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!
