MOVE…GROOVE…
AND SET THE WORLD ABLAZE!
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
RATIONALE
This June 2012, CFC will be celebrating our
31ST Anniversary, ushering in a new springtime
of evangelization in our community
as we live out this year’s theme,
“Proclaim the Greatness of the Lord”!
And this year, we take on the theme, “ABLAZE”,
for our anniversary celebration,
continuing the passion, dedication and commitment
for the mission that has been set ‘ON FIRE’
at the CFC Leaders Conference in Araneta.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
RATIONALE
This urges us to explore new ways to evangelize
and spread the Good News to others, so more and
more people may truly experience God’s Greatness!
So with this in mind, we launch this idea
to use something currently popular all over the globe
to make God known to non-CFC members
in a fun and creative way --through a flash mob dance.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
BACKGROUNDER
A ‘flash mob’ is an organized routine
of a group of performers working together on a large scale
to surprise and amuse the general public
for a temporary period of time with a spontaneous
performance. This is usually organized through
telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.
Flash mob performances can include dances, songs or
even record-breaking attempts. But the most common
type of flash mob that often creates the biggest spectacle
is the ‘flash mob dance’.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
GUIDELINES
The CFC Flash Mob Dance is the highlight of this year’s
Anniversary Parade. This will be participated in by
members of CFC and its Ministries from selected areas.
Each Metro Manila sector is encouraged to come up with
one entry. Their entries will involve two main parts:
 Organizing a flash mob dance event in their area
prior to the anniversary celebration, which will then
be properly documented (video).
 Performing the flash mob dance routine during the
Anniversary Parade, while their video is being played
onscreen.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
GUIDELINES
Each Philippine region, as well as International region
(Asia, Oceania, The Americas, Europe, Africa), is also
encouraged to have at least one province or country
organize a flash mob dance to represent the region. The
video of their flash mob event will also be shown onscreen
during the anniversary parade, with or without the actual
performance of the dance routine, considering the
financial and logistical challenge of bringing all performers
of the flash mob to Manila on anniversary day.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Understand the purpose of the flash mob – This endeavor
is aimed towards creating opportunities to ‘proclaim
God’s greatness’ in an entertaining and enjoyable way
that wouldn’t put off the unsuspecting public. It’s a
chance to show the world that life with God is a great
adventure, and it is fun and exciting.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Decide what you’re going to do for your flash mob
occasion – The success of a flash mob performance
depends on the originality, liveliness and attractiveness
of the event. So come up with a concept that has
your own mark of originality (although inspired
by something you may have already seen somewhere),
and is relevant to our goals. Feel free to research
on previous flash mob events, especially on Youtube.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Choose a song and find someone to choreograph
the dance – Before gathering a ‘mob of dancers’,
you’ll need a dance. When choosing your music, find an
upbeat, danceable secular song that can be ‘mashed up’
(combined) with a religious song, to come up with
something that will attract CFC members and nonmembers alike. Total performance time should not
exceed 5 minutes.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Song choices should be submitted to CFC Events
as early as possible, so as to prevent song duplication
among entries. Keep the choreography simple and
wholesome, yet entertaining. Bear in mind that we are
doing this to bear witness to God’s influence in our lives
as members of the CFC community, so our movements,
as well as our choice of costumes and props, should also
be a reflection of this.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Choose your spot for the dance and know the limitations
of your location – A park or square is a great spot,
especially during lunch hour or after work when everyone
is heading home. The more public and random, the better
to draw attention. It might be best to also consider
proximity to majority of your dancers. Know also the
local laws with respect to large gatherings, making sure
it’s not illegal to hold such event in the venue you’ve
chosen.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
While there is obviously a balance between
encouraging people to watch and blocking people from
getting on with their usual activities, you need to judge
that your flash mob won’t be the cause of emergency
or unlawful situations. In the event that the police or
some other local authority requests that your group leave,
please do so quietly and peacefully. This should be
made clear to all the performers even before
the actual performance.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Gather a group of dancers – Flash mob dances can include
any number of people, but for our purpose, aim for at
least 50-75 performers. It may sound like a lot to arrange,
but the more people you have, the more impact the flash
mob creates. Make good use of online resources like
social media networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), emails,
instant messaging (Yahoo Messenger, iMessage,
BlackBerry Messenger, etc.), text messaging, and other
means to gather and give instructions to your flash mob.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Teach the dance routine and provide clear instructions to
your flash mob – The best way to teach the routine is
to come up with an instructional video and post it in
Youtube (but not for public viewing, so as not to spoil the
surprise). If possible, show two perspectives (front and
back view), thus allowing your dancers to learn the dance
by accessing the Youtube link, even if they can’t go to the
rehearsals.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
However, it’s best if you set at least one general rehearsal
to bring everything together, and give final instructions.
You can also opt to schedule rehearsals in smaller groups
of 10-15 people first, before the general rehearsal, to
make it more manageable.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Choose a flash mob dance leader and/or core group of
dancers – This person, or group of dancers, will set
the beat and provide the following point for the rest
of your flash mob dancers. The leader can start the routine
with a solo dance move, and then attract the next group
of 10-15 dancers who will join in the next move.
Then you can double the group’s size with more dancers
joining in, until the entire group is finally involved.
The trick to a good flash mob dance is to gradually get
all the dancers involved in the routine.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Arrange for any props or costumes, as well as music
player needed – It’s best to ask the participants to bring
their own props or to organize their own costume.
Aim for simple clothes and items, or things that people
already have in their wardrobe or house. Also try to keep
the element of surprise as much as possible, so if you plan
on using CFC – FLAME shirts for costumes and other
novelty items for props, you might want to think of
a gimmick to conceal them until just before your
performance.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
As for the music player, it’s best to have one that is simple
(like a boom box powered by batteries) and wouldn’t
need to be tapped to a power source in the location
you’ve chosen.
THE CFC FLASH MOB DANCE
How to Organize:
Organize quality videography or video documentation of
the event – Since a video of your flash mob dance will
be shown during the actual anniversary day, you’d need
to organize people to document the event. Different
footages will enable you to edit and come up with a more
dynamic and creative video.
