SHIMMY MOB!

Did you know that Gina was chosen the 2017 Shimmy Mob Choreographer?  What is Shimmy Mob, you ask?
Shimmy Mob, a "Flash Mob"-type event, is the largest event of its kind by the total geographical territory covered in one day, creating awareness and raising funds for women's and children's shelters in participating communities.  Shimmy Mob sponsors women's and children's shelters in various local areas by promoting and furthering their causes.  Proceeds generated from Shimmy Mob fundraising events are donated to the shelters in the participating communities.  
How does it work?
1.  Register and Order Your Shimmy Mob Kit
Go to http://www.shimmymob.com/.  You can register once there is a City Team Leader established in your area and the city will appear on the registration form.  If you want to participate but there is no leader and you don't want to be the City Team Leader, you can help find one in your city.  The Kit you order includes your Shimmy Mob t-shirt to wear on Shimmy Mob performance day (different from the previous Shimmy Mob event) and links to the choreography breakdown that will be emailed to you.
2.  Learn the dance
You will receive an email with links to the choreography breakdown and runthrough after you register for the Shimmy Mob.
3.  Rehearse with your local participating Instructors.
Your team leader, or a team leader assistant, will let you know times of rehearsals and location details for your area.  You will be contacted by your City Team Leader (CTL) or Team Leader Assistant (TLA) of any updates.  They will also let you know when it is time for you to pick up your t-shirt from your City Team Leader.  
4.  Perform on World Bellydance Day
This is THE DAY!  World Bellydance Day!!  (This year it falls on May 13, 2017.)  Meet up with your Team Leader and other dancers and Shimmy Mob! 
Apart from benefiting women's and children's shelters, Shimmy Mob is a fun way to make new friends and perform with a group in a no-stress, no-pressure environment.  If you've ever been curious about dancing and performing in a non-judgmental, supportive and nurturing group, this is the opportunity for you!  The choreography is short and EASY TO LEARN - accessible to ALL LEVELS of dance.  I invite and encourage all my students and dancer friends to participate!
