GROOVE MALAYSIA is coming to PENANG!

Updated: Jul 13

Ohhhhhh.......yasssss!!! 😍🥳💃🏻🕺🏻


Penangites, get ready for a fabulous dance party from 15 - 17 August, 2024 at Joy Luck Penang.


I'm offering five unique themes to give you a taste of different dance genres, mood and styles. (Don't worry if you can't choose - they are all fabulous! 😊 So pick one, two, three, four or all!)


Are you stoked yet? If yes, read on to prepare for your first GROOVE dancefloor!


YOUR ULTIMATE GUIDE TO BEATS, PLAY, GROOVE


  1. What is GROOVE?


It is a dance experience guided by a certified GROOVE facilitator who will show you some simple moves to unify and connect you to different genres and style of music. She dances with and around you while offering suggestions, ideas and possibilities to inspire creativity, interaction and play. 

 

GROOVE’s key purpose is to get you moving in your own style and ability, while having fun! Imagine you’re at your own dance party with a pumped-up DJ, great music and crazy friends! (For more details, please click here.)


2. Who should attend?


Attend if you are 16 and above, enjoy dancing and can move. One of GROOVE's mantra is, "If you can move, you can GROOVE."


Wait, that's not all. It's also a great activity for those who need a "pick-me-up", looking to meet new people, or wanting to bond with someone; a friend, spouse, partner, parent, daughter, brother, lover, date, etc. GROOVE is truly a unique, joyful and meaningful activity to spend with someone special.


3. Why should I attend?


The official response:


GROOVE's Benefits:

  1. Mental: Boosts confidence, promotes body-positivity, encourages individuality, and ultimately, enhances happiness.

  2. Cognitive: Enhances brain function and boosts memory.

  3. Physical: Improves endurance, strength, balance, coordination, and mobility - essential for healthy aging.

  4. Social: Creates interaction, bonding and a sense of community.


The unofficial response:


You'll have so much fun and joy that you'll leave feeling high and wanting for more. The sense of connection you feel with your fellow GROOVERS is rather quite special.


(Read what GROOVERS have said about their experience here.)


4. What should I wear?


Because we are a dancefloor (as opposed to a dance class), wear any clothing that allows you to move comfortably and confidently. Self-expression is highly encouraged and celebrated.


For those who want to embrace the theme, feel free to wear clothing that will help set the mood.


Lastly, you can either dance bare-footed or wear comfortable shoes (no high heels, please) for more support.


5. What should I bring?


A water bottle, face towel, yoga mat and your fabulous self!


6. What can I expect from the GROOVE themes?

Playground GROOVE (Thur, 15 Aug @ 10am)

Remember how we used to play without inhibition and judgment as a kid? This playlist will help to unleash the inner child in you. Expect over-the-top craziness, fun & playful movements.

AfroBeats GROOVE (Fri, 16 Aug @ 10am)

A mixture of African-inspired playlist that is upbeat, tribal, energetic, vibrant and celebratory.

Bootylicious GROOVE (Thur, 15 Aug @ 7pm)

Shakira sings, "Hips don't lie" to which we say, "Our booty ain't shy!" This playlist will make your booty shake, gyrate, pop and pump so hard that we're gonna thank our maker for those juicy peaches.

Spicy Latin GROOVE (Fri, 16 Aug @ 7pm)

Salsa, mambo, cha-cha, tango, samba -nuff said! Side effects: Flirty, spicy and elegance. (Ladies, wear a long and flare skirt/maxi dress if you have one ready, and please don't buy a new one if you don't. Instead, bring a piece of soft scarf or cloth that you can wrap around your hips to give you the same effect.)

Weekend Pick-Me-Up GROOVE (Sat, 17 Aug @ 9am)

A mixture of different dance genres backed by an uplifting and healing playlist. This one will send you home with a positive vibe.

7. How many other GROOVERS will I be dancing with?

11. Is there anything else I need to know?


I'm glad you asked! 😁


a) The Beauty of Authenticity and Vulnerability


When you finally made it to the dancefloor, I hope you will give yourself permission to be as authentic and vulnerable as possible so that we can all share and celebrate you, and each other. Nothing is more beautiful and magical than seeing our true-est and free-est being.


I'll do my very best as a facilitator to help you embody these 5 GROOVE truths:


  • NOBODY CARES WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE DANCING AND IF THEY DO, IT'S THEIR PROBLEM.

  • YOUR WAY IS THE RIGHT WAY, WHEN YOU DO IT YOUR WAY, YOU CAN'T GET IT WRONG!

  • YOU ARE UNIQUE. YOU SHOULD LOOK DIFFERENT SO DON'T COPY ANYONE ELSE.

  • NO ONE CAN DO IT FOR YOU.

  • NONE OF THESE TRUTHS WORK UNLESS YOU PUT THEM INTO PRACTICE.


(CLICK ON THE POST BELOW FOR AN ILLUSTRATION OF THIS!)




b) The Joy of Sharing & Gifting


GROOVE is founded in the spirit of bringing joy, confidence and empowerment to people. My key motivation is to share GROOVE with as many Malaysians as possible so that they can enjoy the benefits brought to hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. In Malaysia, this is a new community and I rely on you to help build it together.



It would mean a lot to me if you post your GROOVE experience on social media after attending a dancefloor. In gratitude, I will select three GROOVERs with the most joyful or meaningful post and they will each receive a Touch N Go RM30 cash reload.


To be eligible, you must accompany your post with:


  • hashtags #getgrooved and #groove_penang on Instagram/Facebook;

  • mention @groove_malaysia on Instagram or @grooveinmalaysia on Facebook; and

  • mention @theworldgroovemovement on Instagram/Facebook


Only posts between 15 - 24 August, 2024 will be considered.


I can't wait to be in wonderful Penang to share this magical experience with you.


Peace and Joy,


Ka Ea

XoXo
