The Coastal Fit Club will host a Zumba flash mob on 26 October at Swakopmund’s Platz am Meer mall with the aim of raising awareness for breast cancer.

According to Coastal Fit Club’s instructor, Andreea Brand, the theme behind the event which starts at 18:00 is “move to cure, you can change your life”.

“Our Zumba crew is like a family - we all contribute with ideas. When we prepare an event, we do brainstorming during the Zumba classes. For me, October is a special month. Every year I do an awareness pink Zumba class that is free for everyone who would like to join us.

“This year, our flash mob has a powerful, special message for breast cancer awareness. Some of my students are beautiful, awesome fighters of this terrible disease, and they don’t give up. Zumba fitness can contribute significantly in reducing the risk of breast cancer.

“Two years ago I cut my long hair and donated it to the Cancer Association of Namibia. Last year, I was part of the Spar cancer breakfast with one of my students who is a cancer fighter. We dance for her success. She beat cancer twice.

“The first flash mob that I organised in Swakopmund was in 2015 and it took place in the middle of the street in front of Pick n Pay as well as at the Fruit & Veg mall. After that we were part of the ‘rain dance’ which was an event that raised awareness for saving water. Last year, in the same mall, we celebrated their first anniversary with a Zumba flash mob and a demo Zumba,” said Brand.

According to her, the pink flash mob playlist is made with love and an awesome show is expected. The songs include “No excuses” by Meghan Trainor, “Calypso” by Luis Fonsi, “Love” (one of the most popular Zumba song for the moment) by Gianluca Vacchi and “Azukita” by Elvis Crespo.

Anyone who loves to dance and wants to support someone who they love can join the flash mob. All they have to do is wear something pink.

People can join and follow the Zumba moves in the mall or they can contact Andreea Brand on 081 687 8833 to join their rehearsals for free.

The Coastal Fit Club is situated at 49 Sam Nujoma Avenue in Swakopmund. It is open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 09:00 to 10:00 and from 18:00-19:00 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. There are also classes at the Dome’s gym on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 to 11:00.

“After each event, we create the most interesting photos and videos. You can find everything on my Facebook page ‘Zumba Classes at Coastal Fit Club’ and on my YouTube channel ‘Andreea Brand’,” she said.
