On four Saturdays by the end of the summer the "Dancing Sofia" initiative will turn four urban locations into organic "dancefloors", offering everyone a chance to experience a variety of dancing styles and sports classes.
The complete program includes more than 30 different lessons under the professional supervision of instructors from 20 dancing and sports centres in Sofia. At the end, there will be a dance tournament, a prize raffle and an open discussion with the public on topics such as healthy and active living, and how urban areas can be adapted for outdoor sports activities. The project supports "Sofia - European Capital of Sport 2018".
Volunteers are needed to assist with the organisation of the events:
- help clean and arrange the areas - before and after each event;
- attract participants, provide info and directions to the different classes;
- distribute flyers;
- provide information and assistance to the instructors, participants and partners of the events.
The tasks for each event will be rotated among the volunteers, and everyone will definitely get enough free time to practice some moves on the dancefloor.
Derida Dance Center.
"Dancing Sofia" is on a mission to inspire people to be active and live healthy. It also wishes to create a free and friendly platform for promoting the art of dance in Bulgaria, and to show that together we can change our city and make urban spaces fit for outdoor sport activities and dance.

Once a mission you participate in ends, you can tell us how it went in a couple of sentences ("it was great" won't do).
It's simple: after the end we send you instructions - follow them. This way you earn points and rise in rank , others get inspired and we're all happy.
