Flash mob dancers celebrate Twenty20 2014 at University of Huddersfield

Bangladeshi Society Huddersfield University

The spirit of cricket has been celebrated at the University of Huddersfield as dancers have taken to stage a flash mob dance as part of a worldwide celebration.

Organised by the Bangladeshi Student Society of the University of Huddersfield, over 10 dancers took to performing a coordinated flash mob dance to celebrate this year’s ICC Twenty20 World Cup.

President of the society, Afrose Sharmin, told the Yorkshire Standard: “The Twenty20 Cricket tournament was held in our country of Bangladesh, so the dance was held to inspire our cricket team.

“We did rehearsals for two days, and universities and colleges around our country have also done this too.”

The flash mob craze has been replicated around the world, in countries such as Germany, Italy, Australia, and even at a Bangladeshi wedding.

Alan Tobi, International Marketing Officer, said: “It was a real pleasure to see our Bangladeshi student society show such commitment and support to their nations team in this way.

“The society is one of the most active on campus and always participate in the many events that the University hosts. They do a fantastic job of making not only Bangladeshi students feel at home but also welcome other students to their society.”
