ZoieLogic's Lockdown Kitchen Shimmy

Lockdown has been tough so we decided to instigate a monthly dance session for the team to get us moving and bring some joy!

It’s no secret that at ZoieLogic the team loves to dance. Whether our job roles involve dancing or not, we still like to get involved. So in Lockdown 3 in January 2021 we started the online Kitchen Shimmy for our staff members.

Not content to stop there, we wanted to share the kitchen shimmy love and invited members of Team Logic to join us too. Team Logic are the lovely people on our mailing list (although we don’t like to use that phrase).

Kitchen shimmy highlights

In January our favourite moment was when Lynda from Holyrood Estate got creative with her use of props and danced with a kettle on her head. It was wonderful. Lynda also dressed up for the occasion and we loved her commitment!

In February the Kitchen Shimmy went global, with a team of office workers in Gibraltar who joined us during the lunchbreak of their staff training day. They took their dancing to the next level and did a fantastic dance off circle, which was fantastic to watch.

“Dancing together online – not as a project, or in a formal way, just informally and purely for fun, has brought us a lot of joy!”

We’ve all left each shimmy with big smiles on our faces and a bit of a sweat on!

Will you join us for a dance?

We’re going to carry on with our monthly Kitchen Shimmy routine, whether lockdown is over or not – it’s been that much fun.

If you fancy joining us for the next one, simply sign up to Team Logic, keep an eye out for the next Kitchen Shimmy link, and we’ll see you there, kitchen props at the ready!
