KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- You've probably heard 'Happy' by Pharell Williams.

It's a dance craze and everybody is getting in on it.

"Everyone's got a happy dance that they're willing to share," said Nycki Pace of 99.7 The Point.

From Barcelona to Sydney, Hong Kong to London, everyone can dance to 'Happy.' It's now hitting Kansas City and The Point, a radio station, is leading the charge.

"There's no rhyme or reason, no rules. Everybody can dance just however they like. And that's also made it fun for people. It`s as crazy as they want or maybe at a slower speed like people like myself," said Pace.

If you want to two-step into the Kansas City is Happy video, use Twitter to get noticed with #HappyKansasCity.

When Carrie Lewis of the Missouri department of Transportation heard the news, she rallied MoDOT workers for a quick dance session.

"Our crews spent numerous hours keeping the roads safe during the winter weather so who better to celebrate than those who worked through the most of it," Lewis said.

Even Mayor Sly James showed off some of his skills. In an email, the mayor said he danced because KC is an "energetic, creative, and yes -- happy place to live."

The song is about being happy and finding fun in everything you do. So if you're happy, get up and dance.
