Flash mob dance turns ugly
An attempt at unleashing the Spirit of the Community in The City got out of control on Friday afternoon.
A surprise flash mob planned by the Community Development Department to promote the upcoming Community Dance Fest was met with fright, anger and colourful language by shoppers and store owners in the Colonnade Mall.
Dressed in white button-down shirts, black bow ties and jeans, the eight-member Motivation Dancers ran through the first floor of the mall, simulating a playful fight scene. But instead of engaging the group, onlookers shouted at the dancers, telling them to “move from ’bout hey.”
Chief coach for dance Ramoun Joseph admitted to the SATURDAY?SUN that the timing might not have been the best, since people were busy shopping for Christmas.
