Tilda Swinton Leads 1,500 People to Dance to Honor Roger Ebert


Swinton encourages 1,500 audience members at Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival to dance along with her to Barry White's song.

Tilda Swinton successfully made 1,500 people at 2013 Ebertfest in Champaign, III. dance along with her to Barry White's song "You're the First, the Last, My Everything". Tilda, who went to the Saturday, April 20 event to promote her movie "Julia", led the massive dance to honor movie critic Roger Ebert who passed away earlier this month.

"We're not dancing up here. We're coming down to dance with you - because if we dance up here, you're just going to sit and watch us and laugh. So, no observers allowed. Participants only," Tilda said on stage before she led them to dance. Ebert's wife Chaz was on the stage as well.

Shortly after, Swinton got down from the stage and rushed to the aisles as the music started playing. The audience members, who were asked to stand up, moved their body to the music. Some people at the front row danced in high spirit as Swinton joined them.

The audience members clapped and cheered while Swinton moved between the aisles. Some people joined her making round, while others enjoyed the cheerful atmosphere while taking pictures with their phone or camera.

At the end of the song, Swinton held hands with the people who joined her and led them to the stage. They finished dancing, took a bow and left the stage. "It's awesome. That's why [Tilda is] one of our favorite festival guests!" Chaz said.
