SOS Dance Crew is a group of seniors from 60 to 90 years old with amazing spunk, energy, enthusiasm and love of life that share the joy of dance and FLASH MOBS in the most unexpected and amusing places! Our first FLASH MOB was at a Starbucks, sharing what SOS thinks is the perfect theme song for both Starbucks and the Dance Crew: “That’s the Way (I Like It)!”
Since then, we have performed Flash Mobs at the Aquarium of the Pacific, Irvine Global Village Festival, Albertson’s Grocery Store (garnering 140,000 views on Facebook!) and auditioned for the 2016 Season of America’s Got talent. We also present high-energy 30 to 45-minute dance programs at senior/assisted living facilities to entertain and uplift the infirm elderly.
SOS Dance Crew was founded by Director and Zumba Gold Instructor, Susie Vanderlip from a class at Custom Bodies Fitness in Irvine, CA. The SOS Dance Crew is a family of culturally diverse seniors (African-American, Caucasian, Chinese, East Indian, Japanese, Pilipino, Taiwanese, Latin, and more). We continue to rehearse and hold Zumba Gold class every Tuesday and Thursday mornings 10:30am – 11:30am at Pacific Dance in Irvine, CA. Come join us!
SOS Dance Crew believes that “EVERY BODY can DANCE!” And wish to inspire everyone of all ages to get up off the couch and MOVE!
Do it for your health. Do it for FUN! Do it to EMBRACE LIFE!
