Flash Mob for Ellen

By chance I saw a billboard advertising a flash mob for Ellen. I love watching the Ellen DeGeneres Show, so I went in search of finding more. The dance was to be held at Cowboys Casino, here in Calgary, to welcome the new Ellen slot machines that the casino just acquired. One of the employees also loves the Ellen show, so she decided to do a flash mob and post it to Ellen Tube, You Tube and on their Cowboys Facebook page. You can watch it here for Ellen Tube and here for You Tube. Can you spot me in the crowd?

Cowboys has asked us to share the video and hopefully get noticed by Ellen. Share away on twitter, Facebook and blogs. If you share don’t forget the hashtag #laughdanceplay

Travel Theme: Dancing

Ailsa over at where’s my backpack has asked us to post some photos on dancing. I immediately thought about Cuba. The passion and love for dance is a cultural thing which is awesome to witness and join in on. My best memory was when we went to Cuba and during dinner the band struck up some music and suddenly the staff walked away from their duties and started to dance. It quickly became a dance party (after the shock of some dinners) with most tourists and the staff laughing, cheering and dancing all together. As quickly as it all started they returned to work. I don’t have any photos of this fun phenomenon, but here are a few others from Cuba.

Tropicana – Havana, Cuba

What better example of Cuban dance and love of music than the infamous Tropicana in Havana?

Don’t forget to check out Ailsa’s page to see more examples or take part in the challenges. Everyone is welcome 🙂

Stay tuned…. next week there will be more.
