A Jacksonville, Florida, Walmart erupts in mayhem when an estimated 300 teenagers descended upon the store after a nearby party was broken up by police.
*Flash mobs are a group of people joining in a harmless act of celebration that can pop up anywhere and can include anywhere from 10 to thousands of people dancing and singing in rhythmic, choreographed harmony.
But, last year we started seeing teenagers take part in flash mobs that were sinister and included crimes. The newest incident is one of the largest crime infused flash mob.

*The wedding dances between bride and groom, the bridal party, and the father of the bride and the bride have evolved over the years.

*Fans of “Soul Train” boogied down Broadway wearing afro wigs and bell bottoms on Saturday while others recounted their favorite episodes at a Harlem meeting hall in tribute to the TV show’s late creator, Don Cornelius.
About 100 dancers descended on Times Square in a “flash mob” organized through the Internet. As startled tourists looked on, they recreated one of the show’s “Soul Train lines” in which people would take turns dancing toward a TV camera while showing off their most outrageous moves.
“Don Cornelius was a big influence in my life, and I just wanted to pay tribute,” said disc jockey Jon Quick, as he held up a speaker blasting disco grooves. “He was playing the music that nobody else wanted to play. He was an amazing man.”
But on Saturday fans praised Cornelius’ vision in creating, hosting and selling “Soul Train” to television stations that were originally skeptical about programming aimed at blacks. The show aired from 1971 to 2006.
“Don Cornelius brought soul to the whole world,” said Ramona Hamm, 37, who came to Times Square with her 9-year-old daughter, Kayla Charles. The dancers bounced down Broadway for about 45 minutes until police told the party to disperse.
