During Coachella's second weekend, temperatures topped 100 degrees every day. Yet somehow folks were dancing even crazier!

Most just stripped down and let the sweat flow. Here are the ten funkiest, silliest, dirtiest Coachella dancers we saw in animated GIF!

They even inspired us to get down our own self. - Rebecca Haitchcoat

10. Freak Yo Friend

Shade was at a premium this weekend. If your friend offered to stand behind you, and the only price was that she got to freak your head, well, that was a bargain.

9. Shimmy Shimmy Ya

Somehow she didn't even break a sweat. We got hot just watching her.

8. Heel, Ball, Change

We were hoping this dude was about to break out into a full Savion Glover tap routine.

7. Dancers in the Dark

Those who brought in foam bodysuits were super committed to the cause.

6. Parasol Dancing

Now if she could moonwalk with that thing we'd really have something.

5. Flower Girl

We think we saw this dance in an old black and white movie. Only, there were subtle differences in the costuming.

4. Bro-Down

The dance says "Cotton-Eyed Joe," but the music was Manchester Orchestra, who should feel lucky to have fans who so completely lose their shit at their shows.

3. Yogi Breaker

This guy couldn't decide whether to do yoga or the Robot. So he just mashed that shit up.

2. Churning Butter

No need to hit the dairy aisle tonight!

1. Stomp the Yard

We were minding our own business when out of nowhere, this kid became a one-man flash mob. And then he was gone, as quickly as he came.
