Top ten flash mob dances to good songs around the world
Awesome flash mobs
I love flash mobs! They occur in various forms such as getting everybody to freeze in position at once but my favorite form is a flash mob dance.
I have never witnessed one in person but they seem to be so much fun, spreading joy and getting everyone to work in coordination together as a team.
I love to see a flash mob dance in action even if it is only via YouTube. Sometimes a flash mob dance does not look good at all perhaps because there are too few people or because of lack of organization. As the comments on YouTube would indicate, some flash mob dances are "epic" while others "fail".
There is much debate over what really constitutes a flash mob. Can it really be planned or must it be spontaneous? I argue that to be effective, it can not be truly spontaneous. The most impressive flash mob dances include a lot of participants and the event must be planned and organized to get everyone to show up. Spreading the word might occur through emails (i.e.- evites) or flyers.
Additionally, the most impressive flash mob dances do contain quite a bit of choreography and that might most likely mean participants' practicing/rehearsing together beforehand. When the dancing is random and not coordinated, it is much less impressive.
Flash mobs including flash mob dances appear to be a fairly recent phenomenon with the first said to have occurred in New York City in 2003.
Currently, some of the most trendy songs for performing flash mob dances seem to include a rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" from the cast of Glee and songs from the soundtrack of the film Sound of Music.
