IPL 2018 Flash MOB post update

Encouraged by patron feedback and our own strategic thinking on way forward, we have realigned our boundary and added Sport as a key additional theme going forward…and what better than cricket and Indian Premier League (IPL) fever to kick off this innings….

As a tribute to a decade of IPL which commenced in 2008 and the start of its 11th year, I for India hosted a series of dance performances by ardent fans and supporters of the 8 playing teams. Our own googly to make this day even more memorable was securing the Tower of London for this act, arguably London’s most iconic venue and backdrop !

Since we announced the event and invited responses via social media, email etc. the registrations poured in and the 8 teams of dancers and cheerleaders filled up in no time ! While the teams started interacting and getting the act together, the I for India team were at work in the background on arrangements and logistics for the event, including custom made T-shirts for every performing team.

Our first blessing for the D-day was clear weather with even some nice sunny spells ! As we got closer to Saturday noon, the I for India community descended on the Tower of London venue like a rainbow along 8 different shades and some really good cheer and vibes and caught the attention of everyone. We kicked off the performances as planned just after 12:30 in the backdrop of the Tower of London, with a doosra performance against the stunning Tower Bridge backdrop along the banks of the Thames.

The event came to a close as planned around 3:00 pm, with teams cheering and wishing each other luck at the IPL tournament. The sportsmanship and camaraderie of the crowd was evident from the loud cheering and encouragement for every act from all teams. The event was covered by professional videographers (Lav-Media) and photographers (Flashon Photos), as well as TV crew from NDTV.

Our sincere thanks and appreciation to each and every attendee be it choreographers, dancers, cheer leaders, families and children – without whom this event would not have been such a stupendous turnout and success - thank you all once again !! We also place on record our thanks and gratitude to our event sponsors HDFC Limited and DNS Accountants, and the Tower of London authorities without whom this event would not have been possible !

We have been swept, stumped, and hooked by the several positive comments and feedback from our attendees, a hundred dancers and an overall crowd of over 300, that this event had surpassed their expectations on level of impact, organisation and the sheer fun and family entertainment it provided on such a purposeful day out in London !
