How to Create a Flash Mob
Have you ever seen a flash mob on TV or in a YouTube video and wanted to join in? Well, flash mobs have taken the world by storm. Tons of celebrities are posting flash mobs they have been part of or started, and there are some funny ones that have popped up from parties of all kinds. If you’ve ever wanted to be part of one, now is your big chance. We are going to guide you in creating your own flash mob:
First, think about why you want to do the flash mob. Is it for family, a friend’s birthday, or even some sort of organized event? The song you choose should fit the event or occasion. Make sure you keep the song royalty free so as to avoid creating any issues for yourself. Many flash mob choreographers are professionals, but anyone can do it. You want to keep the moves as simple as possible. Remember, there will be dancers of different skill levels in your group.
Keep It Quiet
Keeping the flash mob hush hush is important, especially if you are surprising someone at a party. It should definitely take everyone–especially the recipient–by surprise. So the best way to teach the moves is to make a video and send it privately to each participant. If you are providing an open invitation to join in, make it easy for participants to find the video or pass along.
Practice Your Moves
Make sure your group practices to perfect the dance. It is so important to have all the dancers moving simultaneously. Dancing is a great workout, so practicing not only helps participants perfect their moves but also burns calories. What an added bonus!
If your group has a lot of people who don’t normally dance, be sure to use lots of arm movements. It makes it easier for the group and easier for you as the choreographer.
Dress to Impress
Another way to make it fun, especially if it’s for someone special, is to plan some sort of costume. This could be as simple as all-black clothes or a specific color shirt or even a multitude of colors that somehow coordinate.
Just remember to have fun creating the flash mob and have dancing. Don’t forget to have someone videotape it. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
