The burst of positive energy has happened in the Old City of Dubrovnik when the Zumba flash mob has happened with the song La Bicicleta in the background recently. From children to seniors, from licensed instructors to random tourists, everybody were dancing with the smile on their face! The video, made by Miso Soric, has drawn a lot of attention on the social media and we just wanted to know more.
Tatjana Prigl, licensed Zumba instructor and organizer of this flash mob told us the background story.
- Idea came from Zagreb, from Marina Lorencin and Jelena Diklic. Those zumba educators decided that all the big cities in Croatia should make a flash mob on La Bicicleta, with an official choreography that all the licensed Zumba instructors have – says Prigl who invited many Zumba instructors to join. Firstly, those from Dubrovnik and then she went wider – there were guests from Makarska, Vrgorac, Ljubuski and Zagreb.
There were some special guests too. Since she works at the two retirement homes with a Zumba gold programme where they practice on that song, the seniors also joined the flash mob. Also, she has Zumba kids programme at the Ivan Gundulic elementary school, so they've happily joined too. Beautiful girls from the elementary school in Cavtat also were the part of flash mob, since her colleague Mia Oreskovic leads Zumba kids there.
- It's all about the idea, positive people and good will, the rest is Fairytale – says Prigl and adds that they all had fun and enjoyed themselves which is point of Zumba.
