Help me flood YouTube! The Family Reunion Collective Document

Hi Everybody!

I am looking for people to record The Family Reunion event with their personal camera or cell phone and post the video on YouTube. This will be a Collective Document of the Happening, which will give the Internet viewer an idea of the energy stimulated by the performance at Millennium Park.

I am looking for videos that represent your experience of the happening. The footage can consist of the performance, the audience reactions as well as your own personal response.

Here are some of my favorite camera/cellphone responses from Election Night. I hope they inspire you to come on by and contribute to the project!

Documenters, meet us at Cloud Gate on October 17th at 3:30 pm. Please upload the video as The Family Reunion Project or Electric Slide at Millennium Park. Thanks! 🙂

It’s Electric! The Power of a Dance

I like to see you move with the rhythm; I Like to see when you’re dancing’ from within.
-Bob Marley

So, I guess you are wondering . . . why the electric slide? The electric slide is a group line dance, which is usually performed at celebrations such as weddings, but occasionally a spontaneous line will pop up.  It’s a great community dance because:

#1:  It’s really fun to dance, especially with family and friends.

#2:  It’s contagious.  Sometimes people that witness the dance will usually join in on the fun.

#3:  If you don’t know the electric slide, the other dancers will teach it to you.  It’s a community dance so it is a better experience with a large group . . . the more the merrier!

#4:  If you mess up while performing the electric slide it’s ok . . . as long as you are having a good time!

#5:  It’s a dance for all ages.  If you can walk, then you can participate in the fun.

Here are a few of my favorite examples:

Do you feel inspired to do the electric slide? Invite family and friends to dance with you when you RSVP . . . and make new friends while you participate in the fun! 🙂
