MIAMIA-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Two Florida police officers who appeared to be breaking up a flash mob in a local mall surprised shoppers when they jumped in on the fun.

The Aventura Police Department officers were captured in a video posted to Twitter last Tuesday walking toward the dancing group at the Aventura Mall in Miami, seemingly shooing away the dancers, reported Fox News. Yet that was not the case. As you will see, they had other intentions in mind.

Suddenly, the officers broke out into a choreographed dance not long before the flash mob joined in with them.

“#AventuraPolice taking a moment to celebrate the holiday spirit with @AventuraMall shoppers!” the department tweeted.
