Girls dance at a “flash mob” in front of the Arizona Science Center this morning.
A sort of flash mob took over the plaza in front of the Arizona Science Center this morning. I say “sort of” because it was an extraordinarily well planned flash mob. There were briefs in the Arizona Republic encouraging people to participate in the mob, a local radio station was there for a live remote and it was cosponsored by the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” physical fitness campaign.
If a 21st century flash mob is a group of people coming together because of a series of text messages and SMSes, this was more of a 20th century flash mob called together by 20th century means. Not that that’s a bad thing. It’s just not a real flash mob.
Still it was a lot of fun. There was music, some people danced, a few stayed to go to the Science Center and the others went on their way. The whole thing lasted about 25 minutes.
