Have you ever done something so crazy you started to question your own sanity? A few weeks ago a little voice inside my head said, “DUDE, you should totally organize a flash mob!” Most sane people would have chuckled to themselves and ignored the voice. Not me. I listened to it.
So now here I am, asking you to join me for what could be the most insane (yet wildly entertaining) 5 minutes that downtown Rochester has seen in quite a while. If you’re feeling a little bit crazy, the details are after the jump…
Hmmm, what do you know. I’m not the only nut job in this town. Glad you could join me. Ok, here’s what we’re doing.
On Thursday, June 18, at exactly 9:07a.m. we’re going to start the biggest “spontaneous” dance party ever to take place in downtown Rochester.
For the exact location and to learn the steps, watch the video above.
Don’t worry, there’ll be no show tunes or weak teeny bopper songs. We’ll be layin’ it down to Lose Yourself to Dance by Daft Punk (featuring Pharrell Williams).
We’ve also teamed up with one of Rochester’s premiere Hip Hop dance choreographers, Porshia Mone’ of Sweet Dancerz School of Dance to help us pull the routine together. She’ll lead you through the steps in the video .
But you don’t have to be a good dancer to participate! The objective is simply to fill the space with as many dancers as humanly possible.
Oh yeah, this event WILL be filmed and the local media will be invited. So don’t miss your chance to be immortalized in Rochester’s history books.
Grab all your dancing buddies and join the Facebook group . If ever there was a time to call in late to work, THIS is it. Your boss will understand. Heck, why not INVITE your boss. I’ll even write you a note.

The flash mob will take place on ROC Transit Day – a campaign by Reconnect Rochester that aims to promote public transportation in Rochester and also includes other fun events like a $500 Street Dance Competition and live music & dancing outside Rundel Library that afternoon.
