The impromptu performance surprised the 10.000 participants and spectators who came to take part in the youth sport festival in the community of Sauðárkrókur. The flash mob was a success, thanks to the enthusiastic participants, great coreography and a cheering public.
The result excedeed everyone’s expectations and in the MOVE Week National Coordinator for Iceland Sabína Steinunn’s own words, “it was a fabulous flash mob, and the participants showed how much fun one can have and how easy it is to dance together. I was there, I saw it – they were fantastic”.
The introduction to MOVE Week put an emphasis on diversity as it was performed by different age groups, showing that MOVING is not an activity designed for a particular target group. Everyone can MOVE, everyone can dance and everyone can have a great time together. This is what MOVE Week is all about: inclusion, unity, physical activity and having a good time. Iceland has made a promising start. Now it’s your turn!
