Lone Boy Starts Dancing In Train Station, Seconds Later, Epic Flash Mob Begins.

We’ve seen some epic flash mobs before! Remember the teachers who exploded into a Les Mis-themed flash mob to get everyone pumped for the first day back to school? What about the epic Mary Poppins flash mob for Dick Van Dyke’s 90th birthday? Those flash mobs blew us away, but this time we’re sharing an amazing one that took place in a very public place: the Central Railway Station in Sydney, Australia.

Now the Sydney, Australia might be the last place where you expect to see an Irish jig, but Tourism Ireland decided to pull together some Irish step dancers, including school children, to wow the crowd and to spread some St. Patrick’s Day cheer!

The St. Patty’s performance started with just one very bold boy but– by the end– the dancing mob had grown to over 100 dancers! One dancer commented on the video and explained they learned the dance in just one night.


Other comments praised the group for bringing big smiles to so many people and for representing their country’s traditions so well.


Check out the epic flash mob below.
