I know it’s been a while, but what better way to bring it back then with Flashmob Friday!! This little diddy is simply spectacular…take three ridiculously cute triplets, put them in tuxedos, bring them to a Greek wedding and voila. Please enjoy, as this was one of the most amazing performances I’ve ever seen live. (And also note that this dance was made up the night before with very little practice. Justin Timberlake, they’re comin’ for ya.) Happy Friday!
Flashmob’s are hot right now. So hot that I decided to put together some flashmob action as a surprise for one of my best friend’s and her new husband at their wedding reception.
I can’t say that it was easy. Quality choreography that appeals to everyone, makes sense with the song, and is quick to learn doesn’t just materialize out of thin air. And then comes motivating the masses to spend their hard earned leisure time learning a dance. Believe me, that is no small chore either. Thank god for my drill team roots is all I can say.
However, with the help of fabulous friend, a few bottles of wine, iMovie and the use of YouTube, it can be done. From soup to nuts, we provided a music video, instructional video, as well as the song lyrics with moves like trucker pump, blind man, and hula girl written out, so about 30 of our friends could provide the memory of a lifetime for one of our all time favorite couples.
Many many thanks goes out to Hans Gehrke for without the blind man move the dance just wouldn’t have been the same, Joan of Five Grain Events who weaved this secret endeavor into the evening’s schedule seamlessly, Stitely Entertainment (special shout out to Dallas Wright!) who was the only one I’m aware that captured the brilliance on film. And last but not least, to all the friends who made it possible!!! Not going to lie, you guys had me sweating the day before, but made me so proud that night!
Without further ado, I give you the Jordan Wedding Flashmob Part 1. And please do call if you’d like a flashmob (:
No, not that kind. The kind where you randomly break out in choreographed dance! One of my besties got married this past weekend and what an epic wedding weekend it was. To top it off, I’ve got some amazing friends who went along with the idea to put together a flashmob for the occasion to the tune of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.”
The the original wedding performance is still in production and will be available in the next week or so. In the meantime, please enjoy this encore performance on the rooftop of Reggie’s as the wedding festivities continued on. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Jordan!
