The Ibiza Harlem Shake, March 1st 2013

March 2nd, 2013 - 7:33 pm Posted in ibiza | Comments (0)

The latest viral dance craze flying around the globe is the Harlem Shake. As one of the hotspots on the world’s dance circuit, it was inevitable that Ibiza would have to get in on the act and do the Harlem Shake.

The brainchild of FixIbiza’s Jill Canney, the event quickly grew momentum via FaceBook, and on Friday March 1st, which was also a local holiday (Balearic Day), about 30-40 people gathered in the port opposite the Casino to take part in this historic event.

This type of outdoor event is usually easy to plan in Ibiza, as dry, sunny days are the norm. However, this was not to be on March 1st, and by 4pm when the Shake was due to take place, the wind was strong and the rain was coming down hard and fast! Despite this being the worst weather we had had all year, a large group of people, children and dogs turned up to participate, complete with the contents of their dressing-up boxes.

The weather failed to dampen people’s spirits, and the photos and videos here show testament to what was a wacky and fun event to take part in.

An impromptu after-party took place at Father Jacks Irish Bar in Figueretas, where the merriment and dancing carried on for several hours afterwards.
