2021 Gala of Stars Flash Mob How-Tos

  • Our Gala of Stars tradition is to gather in person to celebrate, watch, cheer, vote, and then we ALL hit the dance floor to strut our own stuff. To gather all of our Raise the Roof community and friends safely and have all feel safe, our 2021 Gala of Stars will once again be online with the same wonderful fun and excitement as our 2020 event. We’ve got dancing community leaders and an opportunity for ALL to join the dancing fun! We’re dancing to build!

    Our extraordinary gala event partners at Arthur Murray Guilford have choreographed a fun line dance for all of us to learn, dance, and create a 2021 gala online flash mob.

    Everything you need for dancing with us is right here: the dance steps broken down, videos of Arthur Murray’s Amy Dirienzo doing the dance (for following along and practicing), and the mp3 of “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” as your dance music. Learn the dance with your family, friends, colleagues, congregation, civic group, and anyone else we’re forgetting. Video yourselves dancing and send to us by end of day November 1. We’ll compile all your videos for a gala night flash mob. Submit videos here. We’ll compile all your videos for a gala night flash mob. Submit videos here.

    – Dance with family, friends, colleagues, business, civic, church, and school groups (safely, socially distanced, and wearing masks, as needed, because we love you.)

    – Dress up or dress down. Have group shirts? Wear them!

    – Learn the dance or break out your own moves, flourishes, flips…

    – Just dance! Make a video—holding your phones horizontally to film—and send to us by uploading to this link. Any problems, email us. We want to dance with you!

    – Watch for your dance moves November 12, 7:30 pm! Event link will be found here on the home page of RaisetheRoofCT.org.
