More than 100 flash dancers broke out into a thunderous performance to Queen's "We Will Rock You" to celebrate the royal wedding, according to the Associated Press.

The mob was actually organized by the palace to mark a reception honoring young people in the performing arts.

The dancers were mainly students from the University of East London. One student told the Telegraph that the dance was picked to have a Romeo & Juliet theme to "celebrate Kate and William and their love."

Suzanne Kootes, a tourist from Toronto, told the AP that the routine "made her want to join in."

An Italian tourist told the Telegraph that he "thought it would be the Queen or Kate and William arriving but this was very surprising. The different ways of dancing were unexpected. The music was cool, it really got you moving. We were just sitting taking photos and then it was there with all the clapping."

Lars, you should drop dead. If you really feel that way don't read the articles about the monarchy and for Pete's Sake don't bother to type in a stupid coment.

I am a senior citizen and I think this is a wonderful way for teens to express their feeling's for William and Kate and the promise of a wonderful future for the couple and Great Britian.

Don't you just love this happy time fun stuff? That is so cool! They might not get on "Dancing with the stars" but that is not the point.
