Limkokwing students ‘Thrill’ shoppers at Halloween flash mob event
The students of Limkokwing Sarawak danced and sang their hearts out in a mesmerising flash mob event at The Summer Mall last Saturday in conjunction with the mall’s Halloween celebration themed ‘Spooky Halloween’.
About 50 members of Limkokwing Sarawak’s Dance Club randomly ‘popped-out’ of nowhere and entertained surprised shoppers with a series of choreographed dance routines that was concluded with Michael Jackson’s iconic ‘Thriller’ moves.
One of the main flash mob dancers, Kelly Ng Yen Fong, a Diploma in Mass Communication student said she truly enjoyed the experience and hopes that more events will be held in the near future which will in turn keep the younger generation actively engaged in these exhilarating events.
According to Limkokwing Sarawak’s Dance Club advisor Lulu Law, the main objective of this event was to get the students to participate and be exposed to activities outside of the campus.
“After weeks of vigorous rehearsal sessions, I am very happy that the students excelled in showcasing their dancing talents, a manifestation that they are not only good in their studies but also possess a great deal of creative artistic abilities in dance and music,” she added.
Prior to the dance sequence, shoppers were treated to an acoustic performance by Limkokwing Sarawak’s Music Club members. With Darren Wong Hong Seng and Nur Rawina Abdul Wahab on vocals, Syed Mohd Ashraf Wan Othman and Emmanuel Reuben Suboh Gomes on guitars and alumnus Mohamad Syafiq Harzmi on percussions, they raised the roof with a string of popular numbers, namely ‘Treasure’ (Bruno Mars), ‘Beneath Your Beautiful’ (Labrinth & Emeli Sande) and ‘Raise Your Glass’ (Pink).
Guitarist Syed Mohd Ashraf and fellow Diploma in Architectural Technology course mate Abdul Rahman Hatta, who choreographed the dance routines, were both ecstatic to be part of the event. “The greatest feeling for us was when the audience sang together with us and clapped throughout the entire dance sequence. All the hard work put into rehearsals has been worth it,” Rahman said.
Limkokwing Sarawak’s Music Club advisor Dexter Mawar believed that the event was a good avenue for musically-gifted students to display their skills. “I am delighted to see their enthusiasm and commitment to perform a great show and with the audiences happily singing along, it was proof that they were successful,” he said.
