Dancers needed for flash mob in Beckley Saturday

BECKLEY — Residents of Beckley may be lucky enough to find themselves amid a crowd of flash mob dances come Saturday, but the location of the surprise celebration will remain under wraps.

“We’re keeping it a secret because we want people to be surprised,” said Angela Crook, a competitor in the 2014 Dancing with the Stars fundraising event. “The only information that we’re letting out is that it’s on July 19 at 6:30 p.m.”

While the details are hush-hush, Crook and her dancing partner, Dr. Andrew Thymius, are calling community members of all ages to join the movement and learn the choreography needed to make the large-scale dancing event a success.

Choreography practices will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday of this week at Bodyworks. Times have not been set, but anyone interested in participating should contact Crook at 304-673-0554 for more information.

The Crook/Thymius team is asking each individual dancer to donate $10 to the United Way of Southern West Virginia in order to participate, but Crook said that those unable to contribute are still welcome to join in on the fun.

Crook can also be contacted through City Slickers Hair and Body Spa and her Facebook page.
