I had no idea that breaking out into dance to Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel” in the middle of Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia for a stranger’s wedding proposal could help me to accomplish a goal AND be so much fun! Seriously though….I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner!!
Making the decision to be a part of a flash mob is the easy part…I just needed to FIND one! I literally googled “I want to join a flash mob” and found Flash Mob America. They organize flash mobs all over the country and all you need to do is pick your location and fill out a form…super simple!
Once I signed up, they sent me two videos – one of the full dance, and one that broke down the dance into steps so that I could learn it. After we had some time with the dance, FMA asked everyone to reconfirm their commitment to attend. We had one practice the morning of the flash mob, and that was it! It was awesome getting to meet the groom-to-be at the practice and seeing his excitement, along with everyone else’s…there were a TON of people participating, and most didn’t know the couple. The energy in the room was really incredible!
I don’t know how it happened, but I wound up being one of the few people to really get the flash mob started in the middle of the park….super intimidating, but I’m SO GLAD I got to. It made the experience so much better! It was a gorgeous day, and thankfully, the dance was recorded. The video is below…I’m the girl to the right of the guy in the middle, wearing jean capris and a white tank with sunglasses. Enjoy my awesome moves!
