From the WSB Forums: Why you won’t see ‘the dancing guy’ in The Junction today

If you missed his announcement in the WSB Forums – you won’t see Hank the Dancing Guy in the West Seattle Junction today. After what he counts as 31 Fridays, dancing at California/Alaska, he’s switching to Saturdays. The video above is from August, when we featured his story here after numerous reader questions.

P.S. We asked Hank a followup about why the change; he explains he’s not off on Fridays any more.

    It’s a bit of an eccentric performance but, hey, I’m down, it takes a lot of courage to dance on the street corner like that.

    We need more Hanks in this world!

    Adore him and his positive attitude, makes me smile every time I see him. Felt a bit sorry for him last week – it was so chilly outside!!

    Way to go Hank…see you on Saturdays!! 😄

    Thanks, I think Saturdays could work out better because, people who want to dance, or who kids want to dance could have a few more minutes, plus I can take song requests as well, so if their kids have a song they want to dance to, we can do it.

    I am so humbled by the outpouring of love and support from the community

    I am so glad to hear he wasn’t sick or just not doing it anymore. My adult son came home, and the first thing he said was that the dancing guy wasn’t out at the Junction today. He seemed sad. I’ll be sure to share the Saturday news. Thanks Hank!

Sorry, comment time is over.
