Girl Scout flash mob!

Shh… It’s a Girl Scout flash mob!

We would LOVE to get a leader or two who would be willing to organize this for Edina.  Please email  if you are willing to be the point person,

As part of the Great Girl Gathering @ Mall of America, the Girl Scoutdance flash mob will be an incredible and powerful way for girls to join together in celebration. The flash mob will occur on March 10 and 11 in the Mall of America rotunda.

What’s a flash mob? Flash mobs are groups of people who show up in public places for seemingly impromptu performances. The performers blend into the crowd both before and after the “show” to give onlookers a fun and surprising experience.

Five of River Valleys’ girls helped Communications Specialist Ashleigh Penrod create flash mob training videos so that any girl (or grownup!) can learn and practice the dance. The flash mob is broken up into three sections based on recommended Girl Scout grade levels, but everyone is encouraged to learn whatever they are comfortable performing.

Join this fun, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and learn the dance! Information and training videos can be found For up-to-the-minute news during the performance dates (March 10 and 11), join the flash mob mobile messaging group by texting FLASHMOB to 27138.

Since flash mobs are inherently secret, the webpage is not searchable on River Valleys’ Centennial website. Here’s how you can spread the word:

  • Bring it up at your next troop meeting. Do you have a dancer in your troop? She can help teach her sister Girl Scouts.
  • Encourage your girl(s) to send the url——to friends and invite them to practice together.
  • Talk to your service unit manager about getting a group of multiple troops together to learn the dance.

There will be two rehearsals for those who wish to practice and/or learn the dance in person. Space is limited; please RSVP to Ashleigh at or 651-251-1212.
