Is something that forms in a punk, ska, or metal concert. The purpose of it is for the outterpeople to keep the formation and act as bouncers and the dancers to run in. There are many different styles of dances that go on; the two step, the running man, skanking. Also moshing and thrashing goes down. Usually people in the pit are very curtious, if you fall, someone will stop and pick you up. This style of dancing is def. great if you're at a underground punk show where people are more considerate, and women can participate without getting beat down.
