Dance videos are viral. It can also be a great way of promotion and marketing. Advertising agencies have also used “flash mobs” for promoting a brand or a product. In the video below, you can see the tech students from A. Smith New Tech High School dancing in the tune of “Uptown Funk,” with their teacher Scot Pankey.
Smith New Tech High School is a four-year-old public school located in Dallas, Texas. It was named after a famous pioneer of civil rights, Antonio Maceo Smith, who was also a federal servant. A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School was established predominantly for the African-American students who belong to low-income families. The students are tutored by other college students.
The local companies help them organize motivational visits from NFL and NBA teams. Moreover, the Young Men of Distinction mentors the male students for leadership. In 2011, it was regarded as a technology magnet school. This school needs some publicity so that they could gather some more sponsors or funding institutes.
These students are bright and are passionate about learning. The only thing that is keeping them from further learning is the lack of means. If they receive enough funds, each student can do wonders. Scot Pankey, one of their teachers, came up with this good initiative to help them get some publicity.
