When Justin Timberlake released the video for Can’t Stop the Feeling, communities across North America got into the feel good vibe of the song and started creating their own versions. At airdrielife we were just as enthralled by these feel-good videos and decided Airdrie needed one too! We put the shout-out on social media and received a resounding YES from Creative Airdrie and Rob Ing Productions. Myself, Deanna Hunter and Rob Ing got together to come up with a basic list of locations we wanted to stop at that provided an overall feel of Airdrie, capturing all ages and dance skills. James Thompson from Voartec Aerial also joined us to provide some cool aerial shots.
A priority was the CW Perry school with their awesome hip-hop crew and they were outstanding. We hit the Airdrie Fire Department, Chinook Winds Park, Airdrie Farmer’s Market, Genesis Place, The Airdrie Public Library, happened upon a baton dance recital and even City Hall (check out City Manager Paul Schultz!). We also popped into a lot of local businesses including Sorso, Sullys, Good Earth Coffeehouse, Hairbenders, Specs, Allfitts, AIR106, Snap Fitness and Cream Body and Bath.
A thousand thank yous to all the people who when asked to dance did so with spontaneous joy. Share the video and share the Airdrie love!
