International Zouk Flash Mob Oslo
2016 International Zouk Flash Mob Oslo Norway is coming up:
The 5th International Zouk Flash Mob will be held on Saturday 17th of September 2016! Thousands of flash mob enthusiasts (students & teachers) from many cities in the world will perform Zouk on the same day to promote it, get together in a fun way, make the Zouk community grow & feel our big family vibe! The Zouk community in Oslo will join again & will perform in Oslo downtown. You can be part of it dancing, watching or filming it for us 🙂 INVITE YOUR FRIENDS!
International Zouk flash Mob oslo, instruction and practice
The instruction and practice in Oslo will start Thursday June 2nd. We invite everyone to join the classes, even if you don’t feel comfortable performing the dance in public, because you can learn to use it only for your social dancing. You don’t need to bring a partner. We rotate partners during the classes and in the end we will help to set fixed partners according to who shows up. Beginners are welcome (take 1 private class with us if you don’t know the basics and lateral step) and all ages are welcome. In 2014 Oslo performed with about 26 people. We are hoping that this year we can beat our own record!

If you’re missing some sessions then you have to do some homework to catch up or take private classes.
2. MEMORIZING & PRACTICING THE CHOREO ITSELF:
On the 5 Thursdays of June, from 20:30 to 21:00 Reyza and Karina will teach the choreography of the Flash Mob 2016, with not much focus on the lead & follow, so that all can manage to memorize & practice the entire routine during this time. These hours of teaching will be FREE for everyone, you only need to pay for the usual 50 NOK entry for the party which happens usually at this time, until 22:30 or 23:00. If you have paid for the course that runs on the same day, this part is free. After that we will practice a few times every Thursday during the zouk socials on Summer to keep the memory fresh… so try to join as many socials as possible 🙂 Let’s make International Zouk Flash Mob in Oslo yet another unforgettable dance event in Oslo, the beautiful capital of Norway!
LAST PRACTICE DAY:
Friday 16th of September (7pm) – Quick test-run at flashmob venue (optional) + group dinner for those interested. We will post more details here soon.
THE BIG DAY: 17th of September:
MEETING PLACE 13:00 @ I Love Dancing (Tollbugata 13). We will quickly organize the final details & perform in different places of Karl Johans gate, Akerbrygge & Opera if not raining, so we get more exposition and great footage. If it rains, we can keep on practicing at Tollbugata 13, and wait until rain is over, so we can perform on the street. Otherwise, we go together to another covered place to perform. We should be finished latest by 17:00. We are open to suggestions for where else we can perform. Let’s make this year the best yet for the International Zouk Flash Mob 🙂
