The Google Dance refers to two things at Google. The first is how Google use to do monthly update cycles to their index and the second is the annual dance Google had where they invited the search community to come to the GooglePlex for a party. Both dances are dead these days but Google has a new t-shirt in the Google Store at the GooglePlex that says "I danced at Google."
It then goes on to read:
While our history of coding is well documented, our tradition of fancy footwork is something of a company secret. The Google Dance originally referred to the monthly gathering when teams updated their indexes. At the suggestion of a search conference attendee, the shindig turned into an actual dance in 2002. For six years, the Silicon Valley search community made its way to the headquarters to shake their groove things in what became an annual event. The dance two-stepped into the sunset in 2008.
