HOLLYWOOD, Md. – Shoppers got an unexpected surprise on Sunday when a flash mob showed up to dance in front of the seafood counter. 

The spontaneous performance was organized by Lisa Martoni and her team of energized women, who pulled it off with confidence.

Flash Mob Brought Unexpected Fun To Bradford's Neighborhood Market

The idea for the flash mob came from Angie Wathen, owner of Potomac Gardens in Coltons Point, Maryland. Wathen had asked Martoni about doing a flash mob at Bradford’s Neighborhood Market, where she is friends with the owners. Martoni thought it would be a fun thing to do and decided to go for it.

Martoni, who owns Sweet Sweat Cardio, has a motto “Feel Good. Not Judged! Rock your Party Box!” She teaches line dancing at Potomac Gardens. So the flash mob was a perfect way to bring together her passion for dance and her desire to make people feel good.

Shoppers at the market were delighted by the unexpected performance. Some stopped to watch and even joined in on the fun. Many said they loved it and thought it was a great way to liven up their day.

  1. Ha Ha, I’ll make sure I spiff up a little bit when I go shopping. $500.00 for a few groceries, I need a little encouragement. Great job.
