Flash mob takes over CBD
SOME were reading the papers while others were standing idly by.

And when the music came on, 200 dancers took the onlookers at Raffles Place by surprise as they broke into a choreographed dance.

‘The toughest part of the flash mob was to train 200 people for the dance. We don’t have a space to accommodate everybody so we separate them in groups,’ said Ms Carol Cheong, the dance choreographer for the flash mob.

The routine took them around two weeks to put together.

Increasingly, flash mobs are used as publicity stunts without the original spontaneity.

Calling Singaporeans to join in the beat
By Lynda Hong, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 19 September 2009 1905 hrs

SINGAPORE: Dancers from the Da:ns Festival want Singaporeans to move to the beat too.

Before the 10-day Da:ns Festival starts on 23 October at the Esplanade, organisers will be planting a series of flash mob dancers at different places.

These will be unannounced to have the element of surprise. Anyone is welcome to join in. All that’s needed, organisers say, is spontaneity.

Raffles City on Saturday became the first venue to see these flash mob dancers doing a five-minute performance, giving some shoppers a pleasant surprise.

“Initial reaction was, ‘music in the shopping mall, how can that be?’ And then, the next thing was you see people dancing. I understand that it’s really about getting people to dance, to take part. I think it’s fantastic,” said a shopper.

“I think it’s good to be dancing in the city,” said another.

The festival will end on 1 November.
