Hillary Pantsuit flashmob
Kids from Berkeley and Richmond performed a flash mob dance at Sunday Streets in support of Hillary Clinton

Kids from Berkeley and Richmond took to the streets during Sunday Streets on Oct. 23 to perform a “Hillary Pantsuit Power” performance.

“We thought having a first women president was very important and that we should celebrate that,” said Tessa Rose-Scheeres, a student at Washington Elementary School whose mother, the Berkeley writer Julia Scheeres was among the parent organizers. Tessa helped choreograph the dance, which drew dozens of spectators at the end of Sunday Streets. The dancers were mostly from Washington and Cragmont Elementary School.

The first “Hillary Pantsuit” flash mob happened in New York City on Oct. 2. Since then the dancing has broken out in various cities, including Berkeley and Oakland.
