We may have been a little busy over here the past couple months (dance recital season!) and haven’t chosen a new featured mobber yet. We love Abbie so much, we’re keeping her in the spotlight. =)
Abbie has danced in 49 FMA Flash Mobs!

Abbie has been an East Coast FMA Flash Mobber since the beginning. As she nears her 50th Flash Mob, we wanted you to get to know her a little better. We think she’s FANTASTIC and we know you’ll love her too:
I’m a mom of 3 brilliant children and one fabulous grandson. After a 20 year 9-to-5 career in sales and admin. that ended on the day my daughter was born, I became a volunteer (church organizations, Girl Scout leader, the local tree commission) and when she was in first grade became a substitute teacher. This has allowed me to take days as I wish to run away to the city for a flash mob.
We asked Abbie what inspired her to join Flash Mob America:
My first mob wasn’t dancing; we did a simple exercise routine in the middle of Seventh Avenue in front of the Sheridan but I was hooked.
Rising early to get on the bus to the big city was an adventure wherever it was taking me and it wasn’t long before I began connecting with new friends and just having a blast providing these “joy through surprise” moments for people we didn’t even know.
The biggest hook is the connection for a few hours with people that escalates to the event and then stays with us as a great memory. We are forever connected by the shared experience.
