The Freestyle Dance Academy Company ‘thrilled’ audience members at The Shops at Valley Square with a Halloween themed flashmob performance to Michael Jackson’s iconic “Thriller.” The open-air mall, located in Warrington, Pennsylvania, hosts an annual Trick or Treat event for the children of the Bucks County region. This season, The Shops at Valley Square asked the FDA Company to put a unique twist on the event, which certainly left an impression!
The dancers emerged from the tunnel, into the main square, covered from head to toe in their best ghoulish attire. When the music dropped, and the crowd realized what was happening, they let out a roar of excitement, while the FDA Company performed MJ’s famous choreography. The performance was complete with some solo performances at the end, including an exciting breaking (“breakdancing”) freestyle by Freestyle Dance Academy teacher, Mr. Andrew. After the show, the zombie performers stayed to take photos with Trick or Treaters, and help celebrate the Halloween season. The haunted tunnel was decorated by our friends at CB Cares, who we love to see out and about in community. Freestyle Dance Academy also performed at CB Cares Pumpkinfest this season, which raises money for drug & alcohol awareness programs in the Central Bucks School District. Watch the 2017 Pumpkinfest performance here.
Freestyle Dance Academy also had the opportunity to partner with one of the shops for a unique promotional video during the event. Yankee Candle, advertising its new personalized candles, asked Tommy, one of the FDA Company members, to join in their ad campaign. After shooting a few scenes in the store, the footage was put together, and can be seen online helping showcase the new product.
A huge thank you to the Shops at Valley Square for inviting the Freestyle Dance Academy Company out to perform. Thank you to Yankee Candle for jumping on board, to T-Mobile for sponsoring sound, and MOD Pizza for the snacks! (No, it was not brain pizza…)
