Senior flash mob

Last Friday, April 13, a very different kind of flash mob surprised the Dulles Town Center mall in Ashburn, VA.
25 residents of Ashby Ponds retirement community ages 66 to 80, surprised crowds at noon with choreographed moves to the hit dance song “Tonight is the Night” by Outasight. The group had spent the last two months rehearsing at least once a week.

Amy Hunter, of wtop.com, reports that one of the performers, Carl Hemmer, had never participated in a flash mob — much less heard of what they were. He’s the oldest of the group, having just turned 80.
“The best part?” he says with a smile. “The end.”
Hemmer is only one of four men in the group.
One woman performer said, “It’s really exciting when you turn around and you see you’re going the wrong way.”
“I know exactly how you feel,” another joined in. “And we thought the men were going to be a problem.”
The women all laughed.
Way to go, seniors!
