It seems like flash mobs are all the craze now!

Ever since I saw Improv Everywhere do a frozen flash mob inside New York City’s Grand Central Station, I have always wanted to be a part of one:

Well, last Friday was International Dance Day and a local dance teacher organized a flash dance mob to help spread the word about the importance of arts education. As soon as I heard about it, I knew I wanted to be a part of it. Plus, it was the perfect opportunity to cross “be a part of a flash mob” off my bucket list.

After a quick choreography lesson the night before, I along with about 40 other girls were set to surprise bystanders at the Sails in downtown Kelowna with our smooth moves. Now flash mobs are supposed to be a surprise and are supposed to catch people off guard. It’s easy to have a mass of people standing around in New York City, it’s a little harder for a group of dancers to be incognito in downtown Kelowna. 

But we pulled it off and I have to say, it was so much fun to be a part of! I had the biggest smile on my face as I danced the routine and looked around at the other girls, who were all in sync with one another, and at the passerbys who stopped in their tracks, confused, to watch us perform.

CHBC News was also there and we ran a story of the dance mob on our newscast. It was a little strange to be part of a story rather than to tell the story.
