Oprah’s “I Gotta Feelin” Kickoff Party Flash Mob Dance

Oprah’s Kickoff Party Dance – I Gotta Feelin

Oprah kicked off the 2009 season with a live open-air version of the show in Chicago.

The shows producers setup a "flash mob dance" to surprise Oprah.

The event kicked off with The Black Eyed Peas hit "I Gotta Feelin`" And as you watch, everyone looks very still, except for a single dancer. Then as the song continues, more and more of the dancers join in until 21,000 people from the crowd were all dancing the choregraphed dance. It is really cool and energetic to watch.

If you’re looking for something to put you in a great mood, start watching this video and watch it til the end :)

    Hello there, i’m a professional dancer. i’d like to make a showreel with regard to my promotions. I also would like to use some animation. Can someone suggest me a good animation studio, but definitely not very expensive? I’m here for 3 months for a tour.
    Love
    Kim.

      I haven’t found any good “cheap” animation programs, actually, I haven’t found any that are usable for the lay person either, me being the lay person in this case. Most of them are just so complex for someone that doesn’t have a cad type of brain. If you are really serious about moving to this kind of area, I would suggest finding some hard-core forums by animation enthusiasts to see what they can recommend…

    Opinions required! I’m researching flash mobbing for my final year geography dissertation at The University of Nottingham and need people who have participated in ONE OR MORE flash mobs to complete my questionnaire. It should only a take a few minutes. Thanks!
