wile out
 v. phr.— «But by wiling out—an urban slang term used to describe going wild on the dance floor—Tabaziba sticks out in the packed club. Most of those around her are flirting at the bar, standing, two-stepping, or couple “grinding.”…For her, club dancing is about venting, not showing off movements or dancing in synch with other people. “I just wile out, with no particular move,” she says.» —“Boston can’t put a krump in its style” by Malena Amusa Boston Globe Aug. 1, 2005.
