International Zouk Flash Mob Day (IZD) is held on the 3rd Saturday of September (16/09/2017) to celebrate and spread the love of Zouk dance. The evolution of this event, since 2012, is beautifully explained by the IZD Organizing Team at this link - www.facebook.com/groups/IZFM.2012/permalink/1182120141915767
Anyone can be a part of this celebration. You need not know Zouk, you could absolutely be new to dancing - doesn’t matter. The idea is to unite as a team to learn the choreography, have loads of fun, make new friends and be part of a special event where Zouk lovers across the world will dance together on the same day.
The Dance & Trek team wishes to volunteer to organize this event for dance and trek enthusiasts. The event day will be a combination of both Zouk dance performance and trekking. Here’s how -
Firstly, we will all learn the choreography during rehearsal sessions in a dance studio in Mumbai.
Simultaneously, participants are encouraged to build a little bit of stamina and endurance for the trek. All you need is a 3-5 km walk daily or any form of exercise for 30-40 mins.
Finally, on the event day (16/09/2017) - together we will go on a ONE day trek to Garbett Plateau and dance on the flat surface mountain top. We are glad to associate with 'Mumbai Pune Adventures' who will volunteer to lead the team during the trek.
