Flash Mob in Denver

This is by far my favorite Lindy Hop flash mob I’ve seen to date:

Holiday travelers at Denver International Airport (DIA) were surprised with an entertaining treat when a flash mob broke out in Jeppesen Terminal on November 22nd, 2011. Approximately 100 dancers from Community-Minded Dance (cmDance) performed a Lindy Hop to a medley of Swing classics in the airport’s Great Hall in Denver, Colorado.

Coordinated by cmDance
Choreography by Ceth Stifel, Heather Ballew, Joseph DeMers, & Lark Mervine

The non-profit organization’s programs bring the music and dance of the Americas to Colorado schools and audiences, including Lindy Hop, Argentine Tango, Jazz, and other American Vintage and folkloric dances.

Organized by DIA’s Art and Culture Program
Today’s dance performance was presented by the airport’s Art and Culture Program. DIA is home to a world-class collection of public art, funded by the City and County of Denver’s “one percent for art” requirement for public facilities.
