Faculty Flash Mob Unleashes Unfettered Joy
GDS FACULTY AND STAFF erupted in dance on the LMS field in September, pulling off a flash mob extravaganza that delighted and surprised students at the second annual All-School Assembly.
Director of student life and wellness Bobby Asher orchestrated the clandestine operation, recreating the flash mob that he helped manage a decade ago when three seniors choreographed a dance for their Senior Quest project to Carly Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”
In a “top secret” email to his colleagues, Bobby urged them to participate and arranged for video training and in-person rehearsals led by HS Performing Arts Teacher Maria Watson. “While participation is completely optional,” Bobby wrote, “so, too, is talent.”
