Dancing in the rain

On Monday, the show did indeed go on for a group of Gabriella Charter School dance students, whose outdoor L.A. Live performance coincided with a downpour.

According Liza Bercovici, who heads the foundation supporting the school (which is in Echo Park):

On Monday evening, students, friends and families of our inner-city non-profit dance program performed a flash mob in the pouring rain at L.A. Live. There was such a torrential downpour that we've retitled it a "splash mob."

Notwithstanding the buckets of rain, our 150 dancers kept a smile on their faces while moving to the strains of Tchaikovsky, Mariah Carey and Wham!

Neither rain nor rain nor more rain could stay those feet from their appointed, joyful dancing.
