A native Californian, Britney Briggs saw her first flash mob on TV and fell in love with concept realizing she wanted to find a dance group that did just that. In 2012 she moved to San Francisco and discovered Bay Area Flash Mob and has been dancing with them ever since. 2 years ago, the founders of BAFM handed over the reins to Ms. Briggs and three other ladies (including Leah Ferrer) and together, they’ve brought the company to new heights and experiences learning different styles of dance, performing all over the Bay Area on stage and in various other public venues and even got to teach the routine to Michael Jackson's Thriller. Now getting ready to move from the Bay Area, she has plans for the future to take what she’s learned these past 7 years and start a flash mob company of her own.

Leah Ferrer has been with Bay Area Flash Mob in various roles since its inception in 2009 and hopes to continue its commitment to community and dance. Please visit bayareaflashmob.com to see how BAFM has spread the joy of dance throughout the Bay Area and to book a flash mob for your wedding, proposal, corporate event or party.
