Flash Mob showcases talents of those with disabilities


COLONIE, NY (WRGB) For this group of performers, it’s never too early to get up and dance!

Around 9:30 Friday morning, inside Colonie Center — on the lower level near Boscov’s about 30 to 40 dancers surprised people at the mall.

The band, ‘flame’ provided the music, while people from different programs around the capital region and beyond provided the choreography.

The programs include Lexington, which provides services and support to children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities;

Another program – transitions – assists young adults transition into independent living; and the dance company.

While some challenges and disabilities might have initially brought this group together — it’s definitely not what’s at the center of their hearts.

Creative spirits and love for the arts are what keep them focused on what they *can* do.

And it’s quite clear they’re not letting anything get in the way of pursuing their passion.

Rockin’ and rollin’ for all levels of abilities.
