Have you seen a flashmob?

Shhhh, it's a secret ! I'm going to be part of a flash mob on Halloween day. Well MyLot, I think I can tell you, since none of you fine people are local. Unfortunately, since I would love to hang out with many of you. For those who don't know - a flash mob is a (seemingly) random big group dance done in a public place. Sometimes this isn't "checked out" with the place to begin with and it's a problem. This one - which is happening at a local mall - has already been cleared by the mall so it is all legit! There have been 3 practices so far. Since it is happening on Halloween day - the song and dance is going to be to Michael Jackson's "Thriller". But there are many other flash mobs for different occasions and sometimes no occasion - just because. Sometimes they are done to specific dance styles and/or for specific causes such as one I know of called 'Shimmy Mob" which is a belly dance themed flash mob where proceeds go domestic violence causes. Here is an example of a really intricate flash mob. I'm not in this one, nor do I know any of the people, they just did awesome. Have you ever participated in one or seen one happen?

how does one generate proceeds from a flash mob?

Hm, I'm not sure. I think it's done for free. In some cases businesses may hire dancers or mobbers to come out and perform to draw a crowd.....

@ledante Oh - I actually re-read my post now. So, to my understand - Shimmy Mob - charges participants to perform. You "fee" to perform is the donation. You learn their choreography. You must also buy a t-shirt (the color changes each year) in order to perform. If you're interested in doing it - you contact the organization, and people in your area who you think would do it, and you get them to sign up.

They have flash mobs in Universal Studios of ‘zombies’ dancing to Thriller for their Halloween festivities. It’s fun to watch since the zombies are very much into their characters. Have fun in yours Faye-san.
