Bonnie and her Splashmob

Bonnie and her Splashmob: making a splash as part of Festival 2018, the cultural programme for the Glasgow 2018 European Games!

A synchronised-swimming-inspired splashy flashmob that popped up across Edinburgh during August 2018 at Ocean Terminal, Portobello Beach and Promenade, Grassmarket and Princes Street Gardens.

This delightful multi-generational Splashmob celebrates unity, diversity, floral bathing hats and bloomers and is hilarious dance fun for all the family. The multi-generational dance ensemble includes two Dance Base performance groups: Lothian Youth Dance Company, and the critically acclaimed semi-professional elder dancers company, PRIME.

Inspired by Glasgow 2018 European Championships mascot Bonnie the Seal, this Splashmob will feature flippers, goggles, snorkels, floatation aids, jazzy armbands and bubbles galore.

Choreographer: Bridie Gane
Costume Designer: Jeanine Byrne
