Turns out, Santa can boogie down with the best of them — well, multiple Santas can.

To the tune of Mariah Carey’s hit “All I Want For Christmas is You,” eleven Santas hit the intersection of Clayton and Lindbergh yesterday to dance it out while the cars were stopped at a light. The fun was brought to the streets by DJ Reggie and the Hip Hop Mamas.

  • The Dancing Santas, a group comprised of DJ Reggie and the Hip Hop Mamas, danced at the intersection of Clayton and Lindbergh this weekend.

The goal of the group is to raise money for various nonprofits while also spreading holiday cheer. They go to various spots in St. Louis, such as sidewalks, events and businesses. Last week, the dancing Santas hosted a toy drive, benefitting Toys for Tots, outside the City Coffee House and Creperie.

Last night, the Dancing Santas raised nearly $400 for the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Currently, the group doesn’t have any fundraisers planned but will be grooving at the Central West End Winter Walk on December 11 at 1 p.m., while also visiting hospitals and children’s centers this holiday season.



You can still donate to the National Alliance on Mental Illness on the group's Facebook page.
