moshing

n
British
dancing in a packed scrimmage to heavy metal, hardcore or any other fast, loud rock music. This activity, which is more a form of energetic communal writhing than dancing, was adopted by fans of hard rock during the late 1980s as a suc-cessor to slam dancing, headbanging or the characteristic playing of imaginary guitars ('air guitar').
