Jump, dance and 'Move for Alzheimer's' in Les Corts
To commemorate World Alzheimer's Day, Fundació ACE organizes the ‘Move for Alzheimer's’ workshop with music, dance and entertainment performances in Les Corts district. The event will take place on September 21 at 10 am in Jardins de Magalí of Barcelona. It is a participatory event, envisioned for the enjoyment of the whole family.
The intention is to arrange an act that makes Alzheimer's disease visible and highlight our commitment with Les Corts district and the city of Barcelona. For this reason, Fundació ACE wanted to highlight the local associations of the district, organizing a solidarity evening with the talent of local entities and groups.
Do you know the local groups?
The kick-off of the day will take place with the batucada performance of La Repúbli-k de l’Avern, which will offer a percussion show. With more than 15 years of musical experience, they play, dance and jump to convey the Brazilian rhythm with the essence of Les Corts.
Next, we will enjoy a Zumba class taught by the team of dance teachers at the Holmes Place Les Corts gym. All attendees will be able to learn how to move with Latin rhythms such as salsa, reggaeton or hip-hop.
Later, we change the rhythm to receive the Group Mou-te, which will offer a country performance. This is a dance team that was born in the district in 1996 to offer activities to women over 40. Its purpose is to make health through dance movements designed for the elderly.
We will end the journey with the special performance of the local castellers from the neighborhood, Panarres de Les Corts. The members are a group of neighbors and they only gather together once a year to commemorate the Festival of Les Corts. The entity wanted to show its sensitivity to the disease, participating in this act for Alzheimer's.
Also, we will have the cheer of Star Wars Catalunya, which recreate the characters of the movies with incredible costumes. Also, will participate the fairy Marina Purpurina, who with his paintings will transform all children into mythological and fantasy beings.
