I was recently in a Flash Mob. A flash mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual act for a brief time, then quickly disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment.

I go to dance classes twice a week so when I was at my hip hop class my dance teacher asked me if I would like to be in his Flash Mob.

Of course I said yes!

There were only 2 rehearsals to learn the whole dance and I was only able to make one of them, but after that one rehearsal, I practiced all week.

For the performance we had to be dressed in black and white. My dance teacher said we had to look classy.

We were performing for my dance teacher’s friend’s daughter’s birthday. It was a surprise for her and when we started dancing she was crying happy tears.

If someone did that for me I would have cried, too!

I have always loved to dance. I have been dancing since I was 4. This was a huge opportunity for me because there were actually dance agents at the party and only three kids my age were in the flash mob and I was one of them!

Everyone else there was a teenager or an adult. I was one lucky girl to be able to participate. I have big dreams about becoming a dancer one day and this got me one step further.

    Wow! You really were one lucky girl to be chosen. I have one question. How old was the daughter of your dance teacher’s friend?
