I Get a Kick out of Flashing

'Cause I'm in the Mob...the FLASH MOB!!  And let me tell you:  It.  Was... 


The choreographers were kind enough to make videos for us to learn the dance, since they were anticipating over  a *thousand* people and it would be tough to get us all in one room to practice.  The organizer, Egan, and the choreographers, Bobby and Beth, were so excited to have so many people come out to dress rehearsal!  We had to have it in a baseball field!!


The dance comprised of four different songs.  The first one was easy enough:  step side to side, a little snapping, hand gestures, and a turn.

Ta-da!

The second song:  we were told to be *sassy*.


This dance included swinging arms, turning, and a couple of kicks.
*Note:  You may want to determine clearance needed when trying to emulate the Rockettes in your living room.




The third dance was to a Lady Gaga song.  We were told to be scary/sexy monsters.


(Sing-song voice:) Nailed it!

The last dance had lots and *lots* of jumping and SCREAMING!


That's me with my pals Ann Marie and Molly (I'm the one in the middle...in case you didn't recognize me without my usual outfit).

Our friend Cris was there too and she called between dances.


If you've ever considered doing a flash mob, I would highly recommend it.

It. Was.  AWESOME!!!  (Did I say that already?)

  10. Those kids at the beginning of the video were SO good!

    Have you seen that new show on TV about flashmobs? I don't remember what it's called...

    How did you find out about the mob? Is there a place to go to find out where they are/etc?

  11. Tokyo Bun Bun: Yes, very amazing :)

    Bernie: Yes it was really fun! I found out from a friend (Molly) who saw that a coworker of ours had signed up on facebook...there was a facebook page with all the details. Now, I know where to go to find out about more of them!

    Erika: You're not the only one, but I'm glad I could entertain you anyway :D

    Katherina: Yeah, it was really fun!

    April: Thanks for coming by :)

    ShanimalsCrackers: I haven't seen the show but I have heard about it! The people who organized this flash mob are at onedegreeevents.com but they seem to be local. Oh, and one of those kids has been on the Ellen show! I didn't even know they were there until I saw the video because I had to 'hide'!

    My favourite part? The middle-aged dude in the blue dressshirt and a bluetooth. I believe he may have been having the MOST fun ;)
