Tilda Swinton leads dance-along at Ebertfest 2013

When she's not sleeping for the sake of art, Tilda Swinton's actually pretty lively.

At the late Roger Ebert's film festival, Ebertfest, on April 20, the actress roused a crowd of 1,500 and led them in a dance-along.

"This is a spiritual service," Swinton said as she instructed the audience to stand. And then, as Barry White's "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" played on, the star took to the aisles to keep the crowd dancing.

Ebert's wife, Chaz, introduced Swinton, and then cut loose on the stage. The event wasn't a memorial for Ebert, who passed away April 4, but it was surely a great way to celebrate the life of the venerated film critic.

    Besides, I cant pull up the Light Years blog on my phone, & I'm pretty much banished from the political blogs for telling the truth, so you're stuck with me here. Live with it or boot me.

    *****Not So Important Response***** If this is an "official" cnn request, please put in a blog column, not in the comments. Otherwise, we have no choice but to assume its just another liberal on their high-horse that thinks we should all post what THEY want us too. They want to control our guns, our money, & now they want to define the 1st Amendment to only include what THEY want to hear & read. Until I see an official cnn request, with confirmation its really from cnn, I'll disregard any request to stifle my creativity. Thank you for your cooperation
