“Dance in a flash mob” is on many people’s life lists. I didn’t want to just dance in one, I wanted to plan one as well (nobody said I was brilliant). Fate stepped in and put me in touch with some women who had a similar dream and a reason to believe in this cause. We got into the planning mode and things just seemed to come together. Everyone was dedicated to what we were doing and excited to offer their expertise in order to pull off this event.
Who am I to think I can plan a Flash Mob? Did anyone even take the time to learn the dance? I had invited film crews to film it, what if nobody showed up and it was a total flop?
I have learned from this experience that when people dream they can accomplish great things. I learned that dance is a universal language and I learned to be in the moment. I also learned to never, ever try something this big alone or without the right people. With the hard work of Ruth, Jessica, Brandy and so many others we pulled off something incredible. Life is precious, the ability to dance is divine and the capacity to make change is immense when you get a group of people together working for a common goal and believing that anything is possible.
