Flash Mob!

Wikipedia describes a Flash Mob as a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and pointless act for a brief time, then disperse.

We did exactly that on Saturday, and I can't begin to tell you how much fun it was!

We rehearsed on two Friday evenings for a couple of hours at a local dance studio, and then we assembled at our little theatre at the alloted time for a final runthrough. The Strawberry Festival crowd out on Main Street didn't know what a treat they were in for.

Here's the official video. I'm in a black Tshirt and white capris and visible at 0.38, 0.55 and 2.32 into the dance.



And here's the unofficial video. and I'm at 0.33, 1.12 and 2.07. Just look for the red hair and sunglasses.



This was the most fun that you can have in a public place and not get arrested!

That was one of the COOLEST things I've seen! I literally got goosebumps watching you and your friends and fellow flash mobbers perform! I wish I was there to watch it. I wanna see a flash mob happen one day. I just love the idea and think you are so cool being involved in that. Go Shammie!!

Wow, that looks so cool. I can't show my daughter though as she'd have us on the first plane to Canada! She just loves things like "Flash Mob" but I don't think there is anything quite like it here.

How FUN!! I would be terrified to try such a thing, but it looks like you all had a great time. It's good, clean, fun, and I would love to see more of that happening all over the world.

I watched both videos and would have loved to see them live. Hopefully it was not as warm as it is here. Now, how do you remember all the steps of the choreography ? it looks complicated.

Fun stuff, Shammie. I've never witnessed a flash mob but would get such a kick out of it if I did. Even more so to be a part of one. Good for you. :)
