Today we want to tell you about our anniversary party for ‘10 years ACIM’ last sunday.
It is really unbelievable: more than 10 years have passed since ACIM’s founding at the end of 2008! How fast time flies! And what a great reason to celebrate: we invited all of our friends, family and supporters to give them something back for their love and support during all those years. We were so happy that so many people came around to celebrate with us. Even the mayor of Mainz, Michael Ebling, celebrated with us, which was very special for us. It was a real pleasure having him around, he even gave a very kind speech for us and we got some presents from our hometown Mainz on top.
A varied program and an international buffet
Our varied program included dance performances and other entertaining activities. For our Throwback-Show we even relearned choreographies from 2013, to perform them exclusively on our party. The guests also had time to eat: for the buffet we prepared a lot of different culinary specialities. The Italian dancers from our group made original Italian food, for example focaccia, rice and noodle salad as well as Antipasti. The buffet with the dessert was also very international, besides the waffles and the vegan brownies we also had a “Torta Chilena” and “Bolitas de Coco”, two desserts from Costa Rica.
After the meal, our newest member David surprised us with some poetry about our crew and our coach Ece Bas. Ece has founded the crew and coached us from our very beginning and is therefore the one to “blame” for our success, as David said humorously in his piece of poetry.
Of course there was also the chance to become active at our party: for the gamblers within our guests we prepared a super fun ACIM-Quiz. For those who wanted to swing their hips and especially for our younger guests we prepared a dance workshop, led by our wonderful dancer Madlen.
The perfect ending for an awesome party
At the very end of our party, as all of our guests slowly left, our crew stayed a little bit longer and we enjoyed watching old videos together – our own little anniversary party so to say.
