NORTH DELTA — Three members of the BC Lions showed their dance moves during an anti-bullying flash mob at North Delta Secondary on Wednesday, Feb. 24, otherwise known as “Pink Shirt Day.”

Close to 700 students from ND, Sands and Delview secondary schools, along with some from Richardson Elementary, participated in the event, directed by Sean Bindra and set to the music of Justin Bieber’s “Children” and a Bollywood hit called “Shaam Shaandar.”

The orange-clad football players in attendance were Jason Arakgi, Emmanual Arceneaux and Eric Fraser.

The dance was choreographed by Rohan D’Silva, principal dance instructor from Shiamak Davar International Canada.

“I was bullied during school, so I want to make a positive change and make our community safer,” Bindra explained prior to the event.

“Life is all about spreading love and happiness. There is no greater feeling than being responsible for someone else’s smile. I want to spread this message across our community.”

Bindra added: “My cousin (Binda Khun-Khun) passed away (from) cancer last year. He loved this community, loved giving back, and he loved the kids. Therefore, I am dedicating this event in his memory and hope to make him proud.”
