Flashmob Surprise Fun at Camp - Teen Tuesday Post by Rebecca Elspas

Teen Tuesday
by Rebecca Elspas, Teen Blogger

Hey everyone! As you are reading this week's Teen Tuesday I am away working as a counselor at a sleep away camp. It's been real busy taking care of the kids, so sorry for the short blogpost. Here in camp, while the campers were innocently eating dinner, we (the staff) had a huge Call Me Maybe Flashmob!

For those who don't know, a flashmob is when a group of people have been planning a song and dance, then go into a public area such as a restaurant, pretending nothing is going on. Then, there is one person that does something that catches everyone's attention. Like dropping something, screaming "snake," or standing on a table and singing loudly -- kind of like the Harlem Shake.

Here's a great step-by-step video teaching this dance...

Next, all of a sudden these people from the group of flashmobbers jump up and join in to the song and dance. It's legit, the funnest thing to do ever!

Don't miss this YouTube either. It's of me (wearing striped gray shirt) with my school choir performing the first-ever FlashMob on Pico at Jeff's Deli in Los Angeles.

So this summer, get a group of friends -- or a singing ensemble or dance troupe -- together to show off your own musical talent, choreography and dance steps. Then after you've planned it out and practiced a bit, go to a mall, park, restaurant, theater hallway or even a gas station and make someone's day (and most likely your own)!

Callout to everyone with Call Me Maybe stuck in their head cause it's stuck in mine!
