Ball State Dance Marathon's morale committee organized a flash mob today at 11:55 a.m. in the Atrium of the Arts and Journalism Building.
Around 20 members of the morale committee and executive board danced to Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop ‘Til You Get Enough" to raise awareness for Dance Marathon, which will take place Feb. 18 in the Student Recreational and Wellness Center.
"We wanted to create a lot of publicity and we thought this would really turn heads," sophomore Lee Jerstad said.
Jerstad, a public relations major and member of the morale committee, choreographed the dance and was one of the first participants to start dancing when the mob began.
Many students eating lunch in the Atrium were surprised by the event.
"You think [everyone walking by] looks pretty normal and then all of a sudden you're realize they're part of a group," freshman Zane Anderson, a telecommunications major said. "It was cool; I'm glad I was here to see it."
Upcoming BSDM events include a three-on-three basketball tournament and a "tacky prom" fundraiser in January.
