If you wander by Seattle’s City Hall on your lunch break today, you might see 75 teens (give or take) dancing in the streets. They know hip hop, the rhumba, even traditional Indian Odissi. They have the kind of energy that could make you smile even if your lunch cost $12 and you dropped half of it on your pants. Starting at noon, these talented young things (T.Y.T) will perform a preview of Dance This, an upcoming show (Paramount Theatre, July 10) of all local teens showing off what they learned from visiting choreographers like Giselle Peacock of Broadway’s Burn the Floor and Napoleon and Tabitha from FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance.

And once they’re done, they’ll even teach you a few moves for a flash mob to follow at a secret location. Yes, more flash mobs. This show is in conjunction with Seattle’s outdoor Concerts at City Hall series, which also includes shows by Mt. St. Helens Vietnam Band (July 8), the Dusty 45s (July 15), and more throughout the year.
