The Flash Mob Challenge

What is the craziest, funniest, whackiest thing that you have done together with your team? If you are still thinking, it is perhaps time for you to explore being a part of a Flash mob!

Have you watched videos in which a group of people assemble suddenly in a public area, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless routine for a brief time, and then quickly disperse, as mysteriously as they had come together? What you witnessed is a Flash mob!

While it is absolutely great fun to witness, few would have ever participated in one. After all, it is a great hassle to organize one. Everyone needs to know the dance steps involved, the music beats need to be just right and there needs to be a choreographer who is able to put all the steps together to create the awesomeness! In short, all the different components needs to go just right for it to be a remarkable one.

FocusU invites you to a challenge that is equal parts fun, challenging and endowed with bragging rights!

Putting together a seemingly meaningless activity like this, is not child’s play though and calls for a lot of team work. The activity needs two spaces – one for rehearsals and another for the actual “scene of crime” … just kidding! A space that has multiple entries and the exits for different groups of people to walk-in and walk-out ever so casually during the act. And then comes practice, practice and some more practice. As Edison had said, “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.”

What makes all this easy and fun though are the FocusU choreographers, who nudge participants out of their comfort zone and get them to dance to the rhythm of the music genre that has been chosen. Not to worry if you are one of those who believes you were born with two left feet. With just a few hours of practice, you will be good to impress! After all, the main aim is to let your hair down and have some fun.

As you perform, our co-facilitator team will catch the action in real time for you to have an unforgettable video and a shared memory for ever!

Is the Flash mob Challenge right for your team?

This activity is perfect for pushing your teams out of their comfort zones – and challenging them to push their own boundaries. It can be organized to celebrate recent successes or just as a fun conference activity.

The Flash mob challenge can also be debriefed (if necessary) around some important messages for the team. After all, putting a Flash mob together calls for tremendous co-ordination, taking all team members along, playing to individual strengths, taking risks and sustaining energy! The shared experience is also a great way to build bridges between team members and ignite cohesion!
