71. Bust a Move for the Pink Glove Dance Competition

 It’s not every day that you see people dancing through the halls at Good Shepherd Hospital.  It’s not every day that you find hospital doctors, nurses and staff wearing pink gloves and feather boas to work.  But they’ve been up to something over at the hospital here in Barrington and, when I saw what it was, it gave me goosebumps.  It’s a video of about 100 Good Shepherd Hospital employees, wearing pink and dancing to Firework, one of my favorite Katy Perry songs. Who knew so many of our local healthcare providers double as dancing divas!?!
They created the video to win a dance competition and it’s a major feat in choreographed camaraderie executed by employees, men and women, from just about every department at the hospital.
From the hospital’s president, Karen Lambert, to its housekeepers, from its doctors to its paramedics, there’s no sign of stage fright over wearing wacky pink accessories while grooving to the beat.
They’re bringing out the boogie in hospital beds, at their desks and through the hospital halls.  NOW IT’S OUR TURN to help them dance their way to winning a top prize.  Read on to watch their video and cast your vote……

56. Get in on the New Barrington Dance Craze

 There’s a new community dance craze taking over the streets of Barrington. “Flash Mobs” have become the latest rage. If you watch Glee, follow YouTube or are a hip and happening reader of 365Barrington.com, I’m sure you know all about them ;).  For those of you who’d like a little background, Flash Mobs are “large groups of people who assemble suddenly in public and perform a dance or unusual act for a brief time, then disperse.” The performance is supposed to be a secret, but a little birdie has let me in on what could be Barrington’s next Flash Mob.

Barrington’s last Cruise Night of the season is happening downtown on Cook Street tomorrow night, starting at 6:30. My source tells me that, if you’re there at around 6:45, you might just get Flash Mobbed, like this one that happened a couple of weeks ago……
