TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 9 (UPI) -- About 60 flash mob dancers gathered in Taipei, Taiwan, Saturday to promote a preliminary round of the fifth International Chinese Culinary Competition.

The dancers, who ranged in age from 6 to 80, held kitchen utensils as they performed a dance they called a "kitchen exercise," Taiwan's Central News Agency reported.

"I think the dance is easy because the movements are similar to the ones I make in my kitchen," said 71-year-old participant Chiu Hsing-tzu.

Chiu said she learned about the event from the organizer's Facebook page and decided to show her support.

An online campaign was started to promote the Chinese Culinary Competition, scheduled for June 15-17 at Taipei Expo Park, said New Tang Dynasty Television, the organizer of the event.

Winners of the preliminary round will be asked to participate the September finals in New York's Times Square, the TV station said.
