Unsuspecting shoppers were treated to a flashmob in Eastbourne Arndale Centre performed by the pupils of Langney Primary School.
Within moments, the busy Arndale’s main square suddenly became a stage for the school’s modern dance group, who entertained scores of onlookers with a well-practiced dance routine.
As the dance progressed, the gathering public clapped in support, with many unable to resist the temptation to join in.
Throughout the performance, carefully positioned cameras from eight different angles captured the moment, which is now available on the school’s YouTube channel.
The flashmob concluded with a unified cheer of “Langney” by the performing pupils, before they seamlessly slipped away into the crowd, giving the impression nothing unusual had just occurred.
The thunderous applause at the end of the performance proved the flashmob had been a hit and pleased the audience.
One shopper said, “What a lovely thing to see. It has certainly brightened up my morning.”
Miss Post, Langney Primary School teacher and the flashmob choreographer, said, “Having done a flashmob in our playground last year, we decided to take it up a level.
“Having the opportunity to surprise the public with a new flashmob really enthused the pupils to give their very best performance.
“They have practiced incredibly hard for many months. To see such a huge crowd was fantastic.”
