Here’s the 2021 Dance Mob Performance!
Friday September 17
5-6:30pm Dance Mob Workshop & Performance*
Location: Dundas Place (in front of Budweiser Gardens between Ridout & Talbot Street)
*Please bring your own pool noodle to dance with!
In this workshop you’ll learn a fun and easy dance while holding a pool noodle. The noodles will be an amusing way to make sure we all stay safely 2 metres apart while dancing. Once everyone has learned the moves from choreographers Elizabeth Morgan and Nick Gordon, we’ll head down the street for a surprise performance featuring local rapper Big Lou live on the mic! Open to all ages and experience levels. Please bring your own pool noodle.

Music: As A Crew by Big Lou
Big Lou was born and raised in St. Maarten, a Caribbean island that is the sixth smallest landmass in the world to be divided by two countries. Interestingly, he didn’t realize that he was a creative individual until he was 26 years old – 11 years after moving to Canada. Once he was able to secure Permanent Residency in 2018, he explored his curiosity further and quickly learned how much fun this world of artistry is. In less than two years he went from attempting to start several businesses in the pursuit of self-discovery and landed on the most logical answer. It was in August 2019 when he decided that he was going to be a successful Rap Artist.
