I love flash mobs. They just make me smile. I like the "hidden camera" aspect of it, where people just seemingly coming together and all of a sudden, by osmosis, everybody knows the dance. I love catching people by surprise, seeing the faces of passers-by. I also really love them for their ingenuity, because they bring art and grace into a random day-to-day moment.
Here's one that I find particularly inspiring, for the story behind it's creation. It took place in Canada at the "Toronto Eaton Centre" shopping mall, on a Sunday morning. The gang of dancers and their choreographers put the dance together in just one 6 hour rehearsal the day before the shoot. Pretty amazing. Take a look:Kim MacGregor was the organizer behind this flash mob of 200 dancers to launch the "feel good" movement, "I Believe She's Amazing" in honor of her friend, Erika Heller, who passed away May 28th, 2009 at 31 yrs. old.
