    Ok, so I just saw The Lorax and it was such an awesome movie! I loved the message it sent to kids and adults. I was thinking we could sing and dance to one of the songs Let It Grow. We could do it at a park and plant a tree. Maybe on 4th of July? It gives us time to choreograph and practice. We could do it near time for fireworks so we have an unsuspecting crowd. What do you think?

    It may be too short of notice to do a mob at the Florida State Fair... what about at the Strawberry Festival? Or maybe at the Brandon Mall in the courtyard by the Cheesecake Factory? It would look really cool to dance with umbrellas (we could spin them, twirl them, etc) & that space is usually open enough that it would work.

    Nicole - How about helping out with a really awesome Flash Dance Mob? https://www.facebook.com/groups/...­ Take Back the Night - all about empowering survivors of sexual abuse- are looking for people to do their Mob at this year's event.

    Who is interested in doing another Flash Mob? I need to know who can help us choreograph something. I also need some ideas on what we can do. Looking for something new and different than all the others. Please post replies!!

    I had an awesome time! Wish more people had attended but that didn't make a difference in the amount of fun I had! I want to do another one!

    So excited!! Only 4 more hours till we practice and then do our FIRST flash mob! Can't wait to meet everyone!

    December 17, 2011

  • Tracey

    It's the top floor and very few park there. But we could say the NW corner (farthest from mall, closest to movie theater) if that works.

    December 17, 2011

  • Chevelle

    i'm not familiar w/the parking garage. is it small enough that we will see each other or should we define a more specific area of the garage?

    December 17, 2011

  • Nicole

    I know I can definitely make it at 6pm. I will spread the word on my end. I'm not sure how many will be able to make it. :)

    December 15, 2011

  • Tracey

    YAY!! How about on the top floor of the parking garage (no one there) around 6?

    December 15, 2011

  • Nicole

    I have a total of 27 confirmed people. And I have a boom box. Meeting before hand? I'm not sure. Does everyone want to meet up and have a practice? I'm not familiar with the mall to give specifics. I'm sorry.

    1 · December 15, 2011

  • Tracey

    are there really only 8 people who want to do this?

    December 15, 2011

  • Tracey

    parking lot? or parking garage? if garage, which floor? Did you find a way to make the music louder?

    December 15, 2011

  • Nicole

    Yes it is only 1 and a half minutes long. And yes it ends in the middle of I Gotta Feeling. It is short, but this is the first time I have prepared anything like this. I thought I had more time to put it together but I got a promotion at work and have been working a lot of overtime for training. I wish we had time to practice together but with it being the holidays a lot of people are not available for practice. If everyone wants to gather together in the parking lot and practice 10 minutes befo

    Hi Nicole. Is the song only 1:30 and the performance ends in the middle of a song? Just wanted to make sure I was watching the correct video. This seems rather short and 'incomplete'. Why not holiday music? Just curious. :) Will we have a few minutes to rehearse somewhere as a group?

    December 15, 2011

  • Deb K.

    Hi all! Besides being part of this group, I am also a reporter. I have approval from my editor to do a write-up on our first flash mob at Citrus Park (afterwards, of course). I will be taking photos to run on Sunday. (www.westchase.patch.com) I need to interview three people. I figured Nicole as the founder, another member and someone who watches Saturday night. Please email me @[masked] if you would allow me to interview you. Basically- very simple question - why participate?

    definitely need to get the sound squared away or this won't work-at all!

    The flash mob for Saturday December 17th has been moved in front of Macy's at Citrus Park Mall. The time is still 6:30pm. I am trying to find some sort of amplifier for the music. Any ideas?

    That won't be loud enough, Nicole. You need at the very least a loud boom box or even better would be some type of portable stereo system with an amplifier. I wish I could be there at this first one. Have fun everybody!

    December 11, 2011

  • Nicole

    Yes the beginning of the music. Or should it be something else? Maybe a whistle? I've never done this before, but since we didn't get permits, the mall will not play our music over the loud speakers. I have an iPhone with portable speakers, but it won't be loud especially in a crowded and loud place like the mall.
    Any ideas?

    December 11, 2011

  • Tracey

    What is the starting signal? the beginning of the music?

    December 11, 2011

    Thanks David! I went to the website but it's not letting me download from my phone or iPad and I left my laptop at work. I will post the website on Monday morning. I appreciate the information!!

    Nicole, go to http://www.fileswap.com/­ and start a free account (you can upload up to a gig or so)... Once your video is uploaded, there will be an http address you can copy and paste here and anyone that clicks on it can watch it there &/or download it to their computer is they wish. -D

    I'm not sure how to put this video on this website. My email address is [masked] if you could send me your email address I can email the video now.

  • Tracey

    Thanks, Nicole, for putting this all together. I know it wasn't easy! This should be a lot of fun! I'll copy the video to my website and hopefully we can get my middle school students out there! We need more participants! Share, everyone, on your Facebook page!!

    Hi everyone! I hope your all having a great weekend so far! A friend of mine and myself just got done taping the dance. The video is in the process of being edited so hopefully I can post it later tonight.
    I want to remind everyone before I post the video that I have zero dance experience!! Please be kind when laughing to hard at making a fool of myself, but as silly as I look, I'm having a great time and I'm so excited!!
    There are 2 parts to the dance. The first part is slow and romantic. We h

    i rarely go to this mall, so i won't be as skiddish if security gets in my face like the last flashmob i attended ;)

    Thanks Nicole. I'll be looking for it.

    December 7, 2011

  • Nicole

    There is not a video yet, but I am hoping to have it done by Saturday. Gives everyone a week. It will be short, with big moves that are more simple. Easy for young and old. We will have a bag of Doritos in one hand.

    Is there a video posted yet?

    Looking forward to it! I'll share with my middle school students, too!

  • Nicole

    Deb, Absolutely!! You can sit or stand. If you can shake a finger or a foot or anything just go to the beat.
    I hope you are recovering quickly and nothing too serious. I know from experience car accidents are not fun. But I'm so happy you are coming!

    December 5, 2011

  • Deb K.

    I'm recovering from a car accident, so can't really dance (not that I could to begin with. :) ). Can I stand and eat Doritos to show moral support?

    December 5, 2011

  • Nicole

    It is Saturday the 17th. Sorry for any confusion!!

    December 5, 2011

  • Nicole

    We are going to do a Doritos dance. I will be posting a video of the dance online and I can also email it to everyone. Each person will need to bring a bag of Doritos. It can be any size and any flavor. Kids are welcome to come. I have a 2 year old and 7 year old who will be attending and eating Doritos. It will take place at Citrus Park Mall on the 17th at 6:30pm. We will be in the food court area. In front of the carousel. There is an open space we can use where the fake swimming pools a
