Tomorrow, 20 September, at 5pm in at least 75 locations across Europe, at least groups of dancers will perform the MOVE Week Flash Mob to raise awareness about MOVE Week, from 29 September to 5 October 2014. To coordinate a flash mob takes time, dedication and willing participants, and the Slovenian sisters Lia and Najka are working closely with MOVE Week’s National Coordinators in Slovenia and Portugal to pull off impromptu performances in both countries.
Lia, a dance teacher and trainer of sport for all activities in Skofja Loka, has joined forces with local club Partizan to plan her flash mob in the old city centre of this charming Slovenian city, which is also the country’s oldest.
Najka, who studies at the NOVA University of Lisbon has arranged for all international students staying in the Lumiar Halls of Residence to perform the flash mob at their university.
Saska Benedicic Tomat says that the coordination of events in both countries is a testament to the MOVE Week “family” and a prime example of what ISCA’s latest initiative, MOVE Transfer, is all about:
“The flash mobs in Slovenia and Portugal are the result of a great combination and coordination of trainers and national coordinators in two different countries. Like a big international family! And a great transfer, indeed!”
Look out for MOVE Week Flash Mobs in your city tomorrow!
