When: Saturday April 14th

The meeting point for this flashmob is the Grey’s Monument at 12pm. If you can all get there for that time or near enough as we will be having a run through of the flashmob dance before the actual dance to make sure people are aware of dance. In the meanwhile if you could go onto Youtube and search ‘JEDWARD WATERLINE FLASHMOB’ You will find the video on there and try practise it as much as possible! Remember we’re not professionals its such a bit of fun so you dont need to be good at dancing!

Once the flashmob practice is over we will all go for lunch somewhere then we shall retreat back to GREYS MONUMENT to do the real thing! Hopefully we will get the flashmob on camera! Once we have finished the flashmob, if you are able to stay around (the more the better) bring flyer with you so we are able to promote the twins around the city!

Bring posters/banners so it makes it clear exactly what we are promoting! The organiser is going to try get some promotion of the event through local radio stations to make more and more people aware of our love of John and Edward.

DRESS CODE: Wear something blue as that is the theme throughout all the flashmobs due to the fact the song is called WATERLINE. If you have any Jedheads bring those along with you! Make the day fun!

The dance for the flashmob is different to the normal one, the dance moves will be taught on the day. Everyone will be making flyers and banners to show everyone exactly what your promoting, so bring some along.

The organisers have arranged to get the flashmob on camera and then to send the videos/pictures into the finnish media (news websites) and Youtube.
