Another day of rest for me, so more OBR flashmob rehearsals for you. This time it’s the rehearsals we did at City Hall when it was still a secret venue. A good number of people from the GLA learned the ‘Breaking the Chain’ dance (the one designed to be danced at the same time all over the world) and of course the other flashmobbers learned that and joined in with it too on VDay.

This second image is of the rehearsals of the flamenco part of the flashmob that was developed just for our group jointly by Mimmo Miccolis (contemporary) and Lourdes Fernandes Mayo (flamenco section), who was also the first person ever to perform flamenco in City Hall. I’ll blog more about this another time.
