Proposal Flash Mob (Lake Merritt Park/Oakland)

  • Sep 14, 2013 · 12:00 PM

We're helping a woman propose to her girlfriend with the support of family and friends.  Let's make a massive mob to create a surprise romantic moment for this lucky couple!  HERE ARE FINAL DETAILS:

*(NOTE NEW REHEARSAL LOCATION**)
We have an updated video demo with a tutorial on all the moves to help you out. If you're not able to make rehearsal on Friday, just practice along with the video and rehearse with us Saturday at noon. Most flash mobbers will join in at the Michael Jackson song, but if you feel strong enough, you are welcome to be in the opening group. You can learn both parts and decide on Saturday at rehearsal once we see how many we have.

Here is your new demo/tutorial video: http://youtu.be/YFkcWeaA6SI

*** We have a location change for Friday's rehearsal, due to a conflict at the other location.  The new location is:

Lake Merritt Dance Center (in the Oakland Veteran's Memorial Bldg)  - Multi Purpose Room- 5:30-7pm

200 Grand Avenue at Harrison

Oakland CA 94610


with our rehearsal leader Nick Brentley. Nick will also be leading
rehearsal Saturday at Noon as well as being lead dancer for the flash mob.

Saturday schedule:

Rehearsal Noon-1:30 (see address below)

Flash mob between 2-2:30pm. (same location)
Bring your friends and family. All ages are welcome. Meeting location for Saturday
rehearsal will be in the park area just across the street from the Oakland
Lakeview branch library at 550 El Embarcadero, Oakland, CA 
94610 (meet at corner of Lakeshore & El Embarcadero).

    Hope to have some of you at rehearsal tonight. Remember, the rehearsal is optional, and you can still easily learn the dance at tomorrow's rehearsal. Please help make this proposal special and bring a friend!

    Hey Paula, I don't think I received the updated version so if not could you please send it to me. And does the first group do their part, then the second group does "PYT" and then everybody does the third part?

    September 12, 2013

    • Paula

      Yes, that's correct Sally. I will resend to you
