PARK SLOPE — A humdrum Tuesday turned into an all-out party at P.S. 10 when parents surprised kids during morning lineup with a flash mob dance routine.

Decked out in costumes and hoisting dragon puppets, moms and dads performed a carefully choreographed routine as delighted students watched. Led by a mini marching band, the crowd then made its way out onto the street, where they danced and marched in a short parade up Prospect Avenue.

Fifth-grader Kevon Ferguson said he was shocked by the unexpected dance party. "It was really awesome," Ferguson said. His favorite part was when he got to march and dance in the street, which he said reminded him of a block party.

Parents put on the show, which they rehearsed for weeks, as a gift to P.S. 10 students. Parents performed a similar flash mob last year.

"This is what I love about this school," said parent Lance Colyer. "There's a really strong connection between the parents, faculty and kids. The kids know everybody is thinking about their welfare."

After about half an hour of joyous dancing, it was time to go back to school as usual. Then the morning monitor shouted into a bullhorn, "OK, people, time to go inside."
