[UNOFFICIAL EVENT] Bollywood Flash Mob on Market Street

This Flash Mob involves:
20 or more people performing a choreographed Bollywood/Indian/Bhangra dance routine
Music system consisting of several boomboxes tuned to an iRiver (or something.. help?)
Bring your own costumes. tie some fabric around the hips.
Several people are needed to FILM the event via camera phone.
I volunteer to edit together everyone's footage and post the glorious product to youtube.

This flash mob will *literally* stop traffic for 2-3 minutes as twenty or more people appear in the street in formation, and proceed to perform a Bollywood dance. This flash mob will literally be in the street, so unless we have 20 committed people, it could be just confusing and dangerous.

I can host rehearsals at the SF Dance Center/LINES Ballet, located at Market and 7th Street in San Francisco.

*whether you'd like to do dance, film, or music, and comment below if you can help with choreography ideas or music/sound logisitics (help needed, badly)
*Your availability for rehearsals

    Just one lame concern, there are usually about 3-5 police standing around the area... Should I be worried about getting a record? If so, what would the offense be? Need to know before I can commit to it.

    I love the idea, can someone post an update on if rehearsals are on, and there is a possibility that I could join in.

    it would be great to have an update on this event. I'm assuming it can't be the actual flash mob on Saturday since no information has gone out or rehearsals announced.

      I would love to do this also as long as someone teaches it slowly!

      Prasad, great! Please link me to the songs you like. I'm thinking the easiest thing would be to find a good song with a music video of the dance routine, and have a pro dancer teach us.. which it sounds like Tanisha may know someone!

    OMG!!! this sounds like such a fun idea. I"d loove to be involved. Also, I have a good friend who is a competitive bhangra dancer. I will def. recruit him and he can help us with choreography!
