Where do I sign up for an event?
You can register at http://www.flashmobamerica.com/event-registration/
Registration is 100% voluntary. You can sign up or cancel anytime you want.
How do I know when you are coming to my city?
You can sign up for our newsletter (www.flashmobamerica.com) and follow us on Facebook (@flashmobfanpage) and Twitter (@flashmobamerica) 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. The exact performance location is revealed at rehearsal on the day of your event. (It’s a secret!)
If you are worried you aren’t getting emails, 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?
In most cases, yes. Because you are voluntarily dancing in public as yourself, there is no union jurisdiction associated with dancing in our flash mobs. If your 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 and FMA events coming to your area. 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 minimum age restrictions because of the type of venue or event. (For example, if alcohol will be served at the venue.) We will always let you know when there is a minimum 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. If the event does not allow minors, you’ll know before you register.
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. Most of our events are “the more, the merrier!” We do ask that anyone who plans to participate registers ahead of time (whenever possible).
Can I bring someone that doesn’t want to dance?
If the event is in an outdoor venue, yes. 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).
If the event is taking place at an indoor event, our Sponsors will most likely ask that everyone invited to flash mob actually participates in the surprise.
Bystanders may not be allowed. (You can always ask us!)
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. To receive event-specific information, you need to register for every event you wish 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 waters are needed, how many producers are needed 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.
Our Sponsors get excited when they hear how many people are coming out, so this helps get everyone pumped up!
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.
The number one reason people don’t get our emails is due to entering their address wrong at sign up, so if you’ve tried these things and it’s still not working, feel free to re-register.
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, if you know that you can no longer attend, we ask that you cancel. You will receive a cancellation link with your registration email.
Don’t worry! There is no punishment or “black list” for cancelling or no-showing. We understand that life happens. Participation is totally up to you.
If you can’t make it this time, we hope to see you next time!
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.
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. We don’t keep track of that kind of thing. We do prefer that you use the cancellation link we send so we know what to expect. The more reliable you are, the more events we can offer you in your city!
