Perfect Moment Monday: Flash mob!

I got to do something I’ve wanted to do ever since I saw this.

I went to a Zumba class at my gym on Saturday and found out that Zumbies from all over Denver were participating in a flash mob that afternoon.

So my 9 year-old videographer and I headed downtown, found a parking place and hustled our way down the pedestrian mall.  We got there just in time to join about 40 or so other mobbers.

Dancing with abandon in the winter sun felt exhilaratingly perfect.

Scratch one off the bucket list.

(Should you want to see from a grown-up’s vantage point, here is the flash mob video taken by my instructor’s husband. We flash mobbed three times along the mall, and this is the first dance, in which I still had a coat on. Tessa’s video is the second dance, where I had shed the coat and was down to a sweat jacket. By the third go-round (no video), I was down to a tank top. Good thing we ran out of mall.)


Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join.

  2. Between Sunday night and Tuesday night, write up your own Perfect Moment.
  3. Visit the Perfect Moments of others and let the writers know you were there with some comment currency.

  2. How fun. I’d love to do a flash mob. So glad you did and got to share the video. How did you do it? Where did you rehearse? Did you ever get together before the mall?

    That’s a great check off the bucket list.

    1. We went through the song once in class that morning, then all met at a certain intersection, pretending to not be aware of each other ;-).

      We did it in one place and then we all moseyed down the mall a bit to do it again. And then more moseying and one last dance.

  3. Oh that looks like soooo much fun!!! And I love the 9 yo camera angle. 🙂

    Now I really want to give Zumba a try. Looks like yall were having loads of fun!

  4. SO jealous! Flash mobbing is on my bucket list, as well!

    I did laugh when you mentioned you were down to a tank top…sounds like you almost made it a real “flash” mob!
