Be a part of the Flash Mob!

Want to learn the Flash Mob Dance that we’ll do during Mom Prom night? Here’s a video so you can learn the moves.

Lots of ladies learned last year’s dance (which we promise is simple and easy), and we had a blast busting a few moves together that night. Want proof? Check out this awesome shot of the dance floor last year about mid-way through the flash mob dance.

lisa21Don’t worry about trying to dance in heels. That’s why we have a Shoe Bank on site (sponsored by First Bank) where you can store your pretty heels and hit the dance floor barefoot, if you like.

Local Zumba instructor and fellow mama Kelsey Lee (who teaches at the Mercy YMCA in Rogers) will be at the Mom Prom again this year, and we’ll get her up on stage so you can follow along with the moves, so don’t stress out about memorizing the whole thing. The whole point is to just have fun, and we promise it will be. (Thank you, Kelsey, for creating another fun dance set to some awesome songs again this year!)

Review: How did the first Mom Prom go?

So… how was the first annual NWA Mom Prom (held May 4, 2013)? We’ll let the video highlights and the beautiful photos — snapped by the amazing Lisa Mac of Lisa Mac Photography — do all the talking.

We danced and laughed and enjoyed being with our best girlfriends.
