Rotterdam Uitdagen: our guerrilla actions were a blast!
The Macademias and Holy Pie took over Rotterdam
On Sunday 11 September the Blaak and Beursplein In Rotterdam were taken over by Shimmy Shake dancers during the Rotterdam Uitdagen '16.
The Macademias and Holy Pie represented Shimmy Shake Festival on this nice and sunny day. Hundreds of onlookers enjoyed their performances, took photos and asked for selfies and autographs and we handed out tons of flyers. The countdown to the festival has begun!
