RALEIGH, N.C. – Nearly 200 people took part in a flash mob dance in downtown Raleigh on Sunday morning to support Hillary Clinton.
The event was organized by GASP NC, Girlfriends Actively Supporting Progress, and took place outside the Raleigh Convention Center.
Ashley Lindsey, a professional dancer in New York City originally from Raleigh, lead the group in a choreographed dance to "Can't Stop the Feeling,” by Justin Timberlake.
“It was probably the most exhilarating thing I’ve ever done in my life,” said GASP member Margaret Henderson, who participated in and helped organize the event.
Henderson said Lindsey participated in the original New York City “Pantsuit Power” flash mob video, which helped inspire this one.
Henderson said she showed that video to her friends and they wanted to do something similar.
She said about 170 people were in the flash mob and they spent one week rehearsing it. Henderson said if you count spectators, there were about 300-400 people involved.
“It’s amazing what can happen in a short amount of time if you put your mind to it,” Henderson said.
Clinton is rallying in Raleigh and Charlotte today. She will campaign with Michelle Obama in Winston-Salem on Thursday.
