Flash mob organizer Idalee Hutson-Fish said she planned to stage the impromptu dance performance at Land Title Plaza, but at the last minute moved the impromptu event under the canopies along the north side of the Die Brücke building.

So customers of Macy’s and Book & Game got to shop for shoes and books while watching 40 youths create a line of pliés on the other side of the glass.
