Dartmouth Student Dances His Way Across China In 100 Days (VIDEO)

Some people document their study abroads with detailed travel scrapbooks or with a wealth of photos on Instagram or Tumblr.

Others dance.

Dartmouth College student Jake Gaba filmed himself dancing all over China while he was in the country to study Mandarin over the fall 2013 semester.

From Beijing to Chengdu, the hutongs to Hong Kong, Gaba danced his way across China during the 100 days of his stay. Wherever he went, his moves and brightly colored shorts attracted significant attention.

"In some locations I had 100+ people gathered around my camera taking pictures and videos on their phones," Gaba wrote in the video's description.

The resulting video is a fantastic tribute to a no doubt incredible trip. Kudos to Gaba for pulling it off -- we're not sure we would be brave enough to "dance like nobody's watching" when actually everyone is!

Huff Post Live's Ahmed Shihab-Eldin interviewed Gaba who hinted at a sequel and explained how it all happened. Watch below.
