REGISTRATION QUESTIONS

 

Where do I sign up for an event?

You can register at http://www.flashmobamerica.com/event-registration/

 

How do I know when you are coming to my city?

Please sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get our latest announcements. You can always check our Event Registration page for an event in your city at http://www.flashmobamerica.com/event-registration/

 

Where do I find information for my event?

If you have registered for a specific event, you will receive an email as information becomes available. You will not get an exact location of the flash mob until you arrive at rehearsal on the day of your event. (It’s a secret!)

 You can always check http://www.flashmobamerica.com/event-reveals/ to see if information for your event is available.

 

I’m a member of SAG-AFTRA or AEA. Can I perform in your events?

Yes. Because you are dancing in public as yourself, there is no union jurisdiction associated with dancing in our flash mobs. If our flash mob will appear on TV, we will let you know when union rules apply.

 

How do you use my email address?

We are very protective of our flash mobbers. We will never give out or sell your email to a third party. We only use it to send out our newsletters or information for any event in which you have signed up. You can cancel or unsubscribe at any time.

 

What do you do with my personal information?

We protect it. Your personal information is only used for our internal purposes pertaining to the event you have signed up for. We will never give or sell your personal information to any third party.

 

Can anyone sign up? Is there an age limit?

We love everyone at every age. Our flash mobbers ages range from 0 -100.
Sometimes there are age restrictions because of the type of venue or event. We will always let you know when there is an age restriction.

 

I’m a minor. Can I participate?

Yes! Just make sure you have permission from your parent or guardian. Anyone under the age of 18 should attend with an adult.

We prefer that anyone with an email address registers separately.

 

Can I bring friends?

Absolutely! Unless we close the registration and specifically announce that there are limited spots, we appreciate you promoting the events to your own network. The more, the merrier! We do ask that anyone who plans to participate registers ahead of time or provides us with their name and email address on-site.

(Don’t worry. We don’t share your info.)

 

Can I bring someone that doesn’t want to dance?

Of course! Just make sure they understand they can’t reveal what’s about to happen. We ask that you don’t ever reveal the actual location to anyone who is not with you. (For example, please do not tweet or invite your Facebook friends to come out to watch).

 

I’ve signed up for a previous event in my city. Do I need to sign up for an event in my city again?

Yes. You must register for every event you want to participate in.

 

Why do I need to register?

Our registration numbers are important to us because we use them to determine the size of our rehearsal hall, how many t-shirts or waters we need, how many staff members we need on-site, as well as permit size. These all affect the overall cost of our events, so it’s crucial that we have semi-accurate registration numbers.

 

What should I do if I don’t get the emails?

First check your spam folder, then add us to your address book. This will help your provider white-list us to receive emails. Make sure you signed up for the specific event on our Event Registration page and not just our newsletter under Mailing List .

You can always check http://www.flashmobamerica.com/event-reveals/ to see if information for your event is available.

 

What if I can’t make it after I’ve registered? How do I cancel?

After registering for an event, once you have figured out that you can no longer attend, we ask that you CANCEL. You will receive a cancellation link with your registration email.

 

If I do not live in the state that the flash mob is taking place in, can I register for it?

If you plan on traveling to the area, we highly encourage you to register for the event.  If you know that you cannot attend, we ask that you do not register, or cancel when your plans change.

 

I’m a “Maybe” – should I register?

Yes! This will keep you informed and you can always cancel.

 

Can I just “No Show?”

You can. We won’t hold it against you. But we prefer that you respect your fellow mobbers, and our hardworking staff, and use the cancellation link we send. We really like to know how many people we should expect, and our Sponsors count on this. The more reliable you are, the more events we can offer you in your city!
