The 610 Stompers, a diverse group of men between the ages of 20 and 70, dance in sync along the streets of the French Quarter in New Orleans behind the Warren Easton Charter High School Charter Band. The group began in 2009 and has performed at Pelicans games and Mardi Gras parades, as well as on local T.V. and radio. The group has even made an appearance on “The Tonight Show.”

The 610 Stompers, a male dance troupe in New Orleans, boogied to Rick James's "Super Freak" on Wednesday as they led a corporate parade through the French Quarter. The group, which bills itself as a bunch of "ordinary men” with “extraordinary moves,” formed in 2009 and performs at local events.Yoohyun Jung | NYT Institute
