Flash mob invades the 400 Block

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

People having lunch on Wausau's 400 Block had no idea they would get a meal and a show on Tuesday.

Junior Achievement of Wausau is a group that teaches K-12 students about workforce development and financial literacy. But, on Tuesday, the group decided to take their lessons out of the classroom by organizing a flash mob.

A flash mob is a group of people who suddenly gather together to perform an unusual dance. About 30 people took part, including Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple who entertained the crowd with some of this best moves.

For Jeff McDonald, it was a nice addition to his lunch break.

"It got people's attention, and we got to see what's going on," McDonald say. "It made people want to ask questions about what's going on and what they are all about."

Junior Achievement leaders say they serve more than 10,000 students in 500 classrooms across Northcentral Wisconsin.

"It gets more technology advanced every single day and if kids have a leg up when they graduate high school, they can get better jobs, they can better manage their money when they enter college and just have an advantage," District Director Denese Mace said.

And leaders say what better way to start the school year off than by dancing outside the classroom.
