As I have posted before, our Rachael studies dance and has become quite good at it. In fact, she is now taking classes in several dance styles, so her recital this year is should be fairly diverse and fun. One of the things that her dance company does is Flash Mobbing. It’s basically where a group of people show up at some random public place at a certain time and start dancing in front of an unsuspecting crowd of people. The shot above is of one such occasion. It was right before halloween and it took place on a farm that was open for hayrides, corn mazes and the like. I already knew the time of the dance before hand, so I arrived about about ten minutes ahead of the performance. There were quite a few families milling around, enjoying the days festivities, when all of a sudden I heard the unmistakable sound of the intro to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. At first I was a little taken back because I’m used to seeing Rachael dance up on a stage while we watch her from some theater seating. In this situation, the dance troupe just performs right in the middle of the crowd as they watch. After getting my bearings straight, I finally found Rachael in the crowd and snapped away. All in all it was a fun experience and I hope I get another chance to do this again.
