Thanks to Shannon Sailes and Antwain Alexander for their dancing abilities and their positive interactions. Thanks also to the publishers of these videos on YouTube.
A "dance cam "(camera) is a camera that captures live shots of people dancing in the stands during a sports event. One of the fun things about dance cams is that the fans never know if or when they will be filmed.
Most of the dances that were done in the "dance off" between the usher & the young fan -and most of the dances that are shown in these other featured videos- are of "old school" R&B/Hip-Hop dances from the 1980s.

Who do you think won?

Example #2: Detroit Pistons Dancing Usher and Young Fan on Jimmy Kimmel Live
Jimmy Kimmel Live, Published on Dec 4, 2013
There's a huge viral video going around of an epic dance-off between an adorable kid and a very rhythmically-gifted usher at a recent Detroit Pistons game. This got Jimmy wondering why we don't have audience members or security guards who can dance like that. Luckily, we just happen to have a couple of guests in our audience to show them how it's done.
Here's a comment from this video's discussion thread:
