This. I have to say, the dance is more of like an individual way of expression rather than a physical interaction with others. But still, people get jacked naturally when it happens. I for one got the air knock out of me by some guy's kick, but I just shrugged it off and told myself, "you get involved with this, you know something like this is gonna happen..."
What I feel REALLY bad about is that during "Stick Tight", the second time I stagedived I accidently clocked this poor girl it the face with my knee. I could tell it hurt her really bad.
About halfway through Terror's set, also, some stagedivier caught me with a foot square to my face by accident. My lip got cut and was bleeding pretty profusely; hence the reason I sat out by the side and filmed the last part of the set
Its healed up pretty well, though. I feel proud to have that wound.
