Dancing inmates of Cebu, dance "Nobody" Korean hit song

Dancing inmates of Cebu, dance "Nobody" Korean hit song. The famous "dancing inmates" of Cebu once again gained popularity after dancing to “Nobody," a hit song sung by the all-girl Korean pop group Wonder Girls.

A report on QTV’s Balitanghali showed the inmates from the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) dancing to the song before Russian tourists.

The report said the tourists enjoyed the performance that some of them vowed to tell others of what they had seen.

The detainees perform every last Saturday of the month to almost 600 visitors for free.

The inmates had also danced to “Jai Ho," the theme song of the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire. The performance even included a role playing of a scene in the movie.

CPDRC’s 1,500 inmates made waves in 2007 after their performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller" was posted on video sharing site YouTube.

As of October 14, the "Thriller" (original upload) in YouTube already has more than 34 million views and has been chosen as a favorite video 86,861 times.

Byron Garcia, CPDRC’s provincial security consultant, earlier said the dance routines started after he noticed that the inmates were bored with the usual morning exercise.

Garcia then sought the help of a choreographer and adapted Jackson ’s iconic moves into a four-minute routine.
