Olympic ceremonies choreographer wants you for a 1,000-troupe flash mob dance
at Langley's Canada Day

LANGLEY, BC, June 22 /CNW/ - Marlise McCormick, the Associate Director of Choreography for the Vancouver Olympic Games opening and closing ceremonies, is putting out the call today for British Columbians to sign up and perform a 1000-troupe flash mob dance for the Canada Day ceremonies in Langley. The "Keep the Pride Alive" dance, inspired by the spirit and national pride of the 2010 Winter Games, will be set to an original song by award-winning songwriters Bob Buckley and Brian Gibson.

Keep the Pride Alive producer Maria Martini says the flash mob dance is an open invitation to all energetic British Columbians (15 years and up). No dance experience or skill is necessary.

"We want to reignite the passion and euphoric national pride we all felt during the Olympics," said Martini. "We want to keep the pride alive with a spectacular performance of 1,000 British Columbians moving to an original song we commissioned celebrating Canada's birthday."

Songwriters Bob Buckley and Brian Gibson composed the new song "Keep the Pride Alive" and in French, "Une Fierté à Conserver," which will be performed, along with the dance routine, three times during the Langley Canada Day Celebrations at McLeod Park, Canada's largest two day celebration.

Rehearsals start Wednesday, June 23rd or Friday, June 25th.

All registered dancers are entered to win a trip for two anywhere Aeroplan Rewards flies.

British Columbians can sign up for the flash mob dance at www.keepthepridealive.ca.
