Next week will be a big week for 40 international students from Denmark’s Ollerup Academy of Physical Education as they embark on four days of moving people in Copenhagen. On Monday evening they will join the running NGO Right to Movement for some activities and from Tuesday to Thursday they plan to go “wherever the people are” – in front of the City Hall, on the main shopping street and recreation centres around the city – to get people dancing and having a go at different physical activities.
And the group couldn’t be more diverse, representing six continents and 18 different countries. But on this occasion they will dance “together” with similar groups across Europe as part of the #BeActive FlashMOVE. This means that during the European Week of Sport they will surprise passers-by in Ollerup and Copenhagen with the same flash mob dance that will be performed at the official opening ceremony of the week in Slovakia on Saturday and in more than 70 other cities around Europe.
