Anyone who knows me, knows that I don't like parties or social gatherings :) but the Google Dance is unique. The Google Dance was something Google put on for webmasters and marketers annually during the old SES San Jose shows. The Google Dance 2004 was the last time they held that event, that is until now. In 2016, Google agreed to bring back the Google Dance for SMX West San Jose attendees.

Based on Elisabeth Osmeloski post on Twitter it seems like we have Gary Illyes and Nathan Johns of Google to thank for making this happen.
Maybe 2016 will be a year where Google and webmasters live in harmony.
