The ceremony was just perfect, you’re at the wedding reception and the bride and groom are swanning across the dance floor (somewhat clumsily) for their wedding dance. The room is wet with tears of joy as the song ends.
Suddenly out of nowhere the dance floor is mobbed by 15 excited gals, shuffle-step-step-leaping their way to the centre. The whole group (with bride up front) burst into a dance to Whitney’s ‘I Wanna Dance with Somebody’.
“Where did they come from?”
“What’s going on?”
“This is the best thing I’ve ever seen!”
If you ask me, there’s nothing more pleasing to the eye than a group of people performing synchronised choreography. Add to that high levels of excitement and enthusiasm (and let’s ice that cake with the surprise factor) and you’ve got yourself something more memorable than Miley Cyrus twerking at the Video Music Awards.
Never been part of a flashmob?
It’s exciting and exhilarating, not to mention incredibly entertaining for those who get to witness it. You can also hide down the back if you’ve got 2 left feet, everyone’s looking at the bride anyway (or at that bridesmaid who had a few extra drinks and is lip synching her heart out like she’s Britney Spears. Oh, that’s you!).
But, how do you make this magic happen?!
CHOOSE A HENS NIGHT DANCE CLASS STYLE
Know your hen and know your party group. Is she an 80’s girl or more of a Spice Girl? Maybe she used to kick it 90’s RnB, or she’s a true Belieber.
Pick the music genre that resonates with the hen and that you think will be hilarious or a hit for the whole group.
LEARN A DANCE
Learn a dance routine to a song that you remember knowing all the words to as a young teen. Bring back those memories of pretending you were in the film clip, dancing in front of the mirror in your bedroom while singing into your hairbrush.
Step by step you’ll learn a dance to your chosen song, and then film it so you can practice, practice, practice before the big day!
BUST IT OUT AT THE WEDDING RECEPTION
Move over Spice Girls, this girl gang is going to take the crowd by storm!
You’re sure to receive a VMA for this performance. For extra effect, wear your incredible bedazzled leotard under your wedding-appropriate dress for the BIG reveal!
