In 2015, there were 5000 dancers in 170 different countries around the world, all performing the same choreographed West Coast Swing routine, to the same song! For 2016, the great song is "Classic" by MKTO! The fun routine was choreographed by Olivier Massart, Virginie Massart, Maxime Zzaoui, & Torri Smith!!!

The idea behind Flashmob routine is to perform it at a public location (such as a train station, Universal City Walk, airport, or area with lots of people), & surprise them with an "unscheduled" performance... the element of surprise! Music mysteriously starts, dancers spring out from nowhere, & there is a great show to entertain the masses. Flashmob routines try to reach people who wouldn't usually seek out dance (like going to classes or seeing shows); in the hopes to inspire them to dance! It is also a great way to get West Coast Swing Dance, a partner dance that people love so much, more exposed around the world to help grow this amazing community. WOW!!!
