flash mob dancing

A flash mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment and/or satire. Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails

Flash mob dancing or silent disco is when a flash mob is created for people to meet at a certain location and then dance to their portable music players.

An example of a well know flash mob dancing was the April 2006 silent disco in London. At various London Underground stations, people gathered with their portable music devices, and at a set time began dancing to their music. It was reported that more than 4,000 people participated at London Victoria station.

Sometimes flash mobs can be dangerous an example is flash mob at basketball court in venice beach that ended up in a shooting between gang members.

The use of twitter and facebook groups has added a totally new dimension in how a large groupd of people can organise a meeting very quickly and openly. Flash mob dancing or silent disco sounds like a  lot of fun.
