Give It Up for 2013 Delaware State Fair Dance Mob



"Look at me boy
'Cause I got you
Where I want you
Isn't it so exciting?"
- Give It Up by Victorious Cast

Last month I could barely contain my excitement when I stumbled across a press release in the Cape Gazette inviting anyone to participate in a flash mob at the 2013 Delaware State Fair. Michele Xiques (she directed the Pirates of the Caribbean ballet I raved about last year) and Gene Knowland from First State Academy of Dance choreographed a fun routine to a Victorious Cast song. The video was then uploaded to YouTube and I spent two nights playing and rewinding it to learn the moves.

My spirits dipped when none of my friends were comfortable performing the dance in such a short amount of time, but I was determined to check it off my bucket list. Despite not knowing any other dancers, most of which were at least half my age, I was able to rock it out with the support of my parents in the crowd as cheerleaders and videographers. For those not used to seeing me without fairy wings, I'm the girl in the gray shirt and black vest.

Pivoting out of my comfort zone was a fun way to get ready for National Dance Day, exactly one week later. Anyone else attempting to learn either of Dizzy Feet Foundation's routines by Saturday, July 27?

  3. What party poopers. Who cares if your dance moves aren't quite right because you're just learning the moves? Some folks don't know how to have fun.

  19. That looks like so much fun. And while it's scary to have to work up the courage to do something doesn't it feel great once you've done it? Hope you have a great day.
