Mike Bailey does a "slide of strength" during THON 2013. Slides of strength are done when a dancer runs and slides on a large mat covered in baby powder. Once the dancer stops sliding, he receives a short massage from helping hands. This is the only permissible time for a dancer to be off of their feet. Photo by Steve Osborn
