18 Birthday Flash Mob

This unsuspecting brithday boy's father is surprising him the FMA way! His father lives in Beirut while the birthday boy attends college here in NYC. This is going to be such a sweet surprise. Bring the whole family and join us.

As always, you are not registered and will not get details unless you sign up at the FMA site: http://www.flashmobamerica.com/event-registration/nyc-18th-b-day-flash-mob/. We will change the time (although the date is set). As soon as the time is set you'll get an email.

    Had fun at rehearsal... I got to the park in plenty of time but was confused as to where on the park to go. By the time I caught up with everyone, the song was almost over :(

    BTW I had signed up for a Halloween flash mob and got an e-mail saying it was cancelled but there might be another one that day - anyone know what's going on with that?

      We don't have anything scheduled for Halloween yet. I know I would have loved to do it...

    Agreed! It's a lot to sift through on a busy day.... But don't want to miss pertinent info.

      You can change it to "once a week" for now, and then a few days before the 10th, change it back.

      I will send an email to all of the members who attended, (plus to those who pretended to attend, LOL), as soon as the FMA video is released. It takes some time to edit, so please be patient.

    I think they should allow more time between the practice and event just to allow time to grab something to eat . I almost didn't make it for the event but luckily I did. It turned out great

      Roxanne, did you register through the link above? (flashmob America site?) Susan wrote a message yesterday. If you still have problems, email Susan directly. Click on her picture on the right hand side. Hope this will help

      Hi Roxanne! Not to worry, there will be forms at rehearsal. The release form is sent as an attachment, not a link.

    Thanks Susan. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I think I should keep it "read only" from now on. LOL

    1 · October 18, 2012

    • Susan R.

      LOL! Your help is wonderful! Lots of people here have never done a flash mob before and have questions about why things are the way they are. If you, or anyone, wants to answer those questions...thank you!

      October 18, 2012

  • MIcky

    Perhaps Sharon (who I know) knew the person who didn't get the dance. It helps when we see who is posting and can recognize faces. This would've been my 6th time w FMA and I've done a few w Sharon. This is a great place to meet and help people, which is what you are doing. And I know the two people you sent emails to are greatful so they can participate thanks to you (I would be too) just saying, it's different if someone said they registered and didn't get an email vs just "send me the choreography". Please don't feel slighted in any way. That was not the intention. It's just that if there is a limit on the # of people, no one wants to get to the site and be told there is not enough space and be turned away.

    3 · October 18, 2012

    • Susan R.

      Nancy, I'm still cringing from that. Please see my most recent post...the one before this one!

      Yeah, I was pretty upset after that, but all is good now and I can't wait for this one. I can't make the Friday night rehearsal, but I will definitely be there nice and early on Saturday (and I won't even have to get up at 5:00 a.m. to do it). I have to say, though, that I feel a little guilty because my twin daughters are turning 18 that day too, but they're cool, they don't really want to spend their 18th birthday with their mother anyway. LOL See you all Saturday.

      1 · October 18, 2012

  • Susan R.

    Please don't send other members the details for the Flashmob. It is vital that everyone who is going registers on the Flash Mob America site. We use that site to estimate how many people will arrive so we can accommodate you with adequate rehearsal space and enough dance instructors, producers, etc.

    Any of you who attended the Social Media day event will remember how crowded it was. Based on the number of people who registered on the FMA site, we expected 250 people to show up. Instead, close to 600 of you arrived. It was an amazing event, but all of our flash mobbers deserved less wait time and more room to rehearse. Please, if anyone doesn't have the details, email me. When you email via my profile, I receive your email address and can forward the info after I've verified that you've signed up here:
