Spain was blessed with a visit from the Queen of Bounce herself this past 11th of March in Madrid. Kim, alongside Irie Queen, organized and hosted the Spanish Bounce Shakedown bringing Freedia all the way from New Orleans for a master class, twerk competition and musical showcase. Freedia is well-known for being one of the pioneers of the Twerk movement and also happens to hold the Guinness World Record for Most People Twerking Simultaneously

One of Kim Jordan Creations' many missions is to teach movement within its correct context always conscious of the origins and to celebrate, sharing a love of movement with the community. For that reason, we felt it was fundamental to bring Freedia and clarify for all the European twerk enthusiasts that the Western world's adaptation of these dances based on the "ego" and "personal empowerment" is mistaken. We are proud to have extended this opportunity to all our students and booty ambassadors giving them the resources to contextualize their experience within this tradition and relish in the true essence of this culture!
