BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The end of Arts in Education Week went out with a bang – a flash bang! Kids at the Baton Rouge Center for Visual and Performing Arts put a stop to their recess activities on Friday, Sept. 16 for a flash mob performance.
Dance teacher Leea Reese helped create the choreography for 68 fifth-graders who joined in on the fun. The street jazz routine was performed to Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Starting Something.”
The entire dance was kept a secret from the rest of the kids at the school. However, the students not involved in the dance routine were shown videos throughout the week from other flash mob events that have happened around the country in recent years.
A flash mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time (often a song or dance) then disperse.
If you have video of a flash mob event that has happened recently in Baton Rouge or the surrounding area, we want to see it. All you have to do is post it on the NBC33 Facebook page , and it could end up on our broadcast.
