As soon as the music started up in the Richmond Mall, food court diners knew something was happening.
That something was an all boys dance crew from Waimea Intermediate School who took part in a flash mob this afternoon.
Waimea Intermediate teacher and the groups choreographer, Penny Richards, says she was incredibly proud of the group, which has been part of a mindset change within the school that has seen boys involved in dance gaining popularity.
The group, which is known as RTT – Richards Top Team, performed twice for a crowd of proud parents and members of the public who showed their appreciation of the performance with a loud round of applause.
Penny says she hopes the boys will continue with dance as they progress though college.
