Derby Disco Flash Mob

Katie Green was commissioned by Derby Festé to get Derby dancing as part of Festé 2010, with support from Déda.

On Friday 24 September 2010, Katie and 8 local dancers, James Bartley, Laura Broome, Sarah Butler, Chris Caffrey, Kristen Hannah, Anna McIntosh, Zara Phillips and Stephanie Smith, presented an outdoor disco performance in Derby Market Place, with musical support from Charity Shop DJ Andy Jupp.

On Saturday 25 September 2010, Derby Market Place was again transformed by a very special one off performance. 70 local dancers helped to take passers-by completely by surprise with their disco-themed Flash Mob, choreographed by Katie Green in collaboration with the Friday night Disco dancers. Flash Mobs are unannounced performances in public places which see large groups of people doing something unexpected. Déda class participants of all ages and local school and community groups helped us to make this event a huge success.
