LONDON, July 15, 2011 -


American superstar Ke$ha performed her hit songs at the “EF
Summeranza” party last night to a crowd of more than 3,000 EF
language students. As the party’s headlining performer, she was
also on hand to congratulate contest winners who had choreographed
a dance routine to her chart-topping single, “Blow”. The exclusive
concert took place at the Kempton Park Racecourse just outside
London where language students from around the world met for a
night of fun and celebration.

Earlier this summer, Ke$ha’s song “Blow” was named this year’s
official EF Summer Song and students competed in a dance
competition to meet her in person and perform at the event. The
winning team’s choreography was voted on by EF students and their
dance moves have been taught to thousands of EF students.

Ke$ha met the winning team, led by Swedish student Sabi
(16) and five of his friends, before giving the private
concert to EF students studying in the UK. The concert reached its
peak when Ke$ha’s song “Blow” started and the entire crowd began
dancing the winning choreography in unison.

“I can’t believe we got to meet Ke$ha and perform our dance in
front of the crowd,” says Sabi, who had been preparing for many
weeks. “It was incredible to see so many people dancing along -
definitely a highlight of our summer.”

In addition to preparing students with top-rated language
learning courses, EF schools give students the opportunity to have
fun, make friends from all over the world and have the summer of
their lives.

“We are thrilled to have Ke$ha here to perform the EF Summer
Song in front of all our students since she is such big star to
many of our students,” said Mauro Cuervo, President of EF Language
Travel. “The Summeranza student party is a great opportunity to
show that language learning abroad goes far beyond traditional
classroom learning - our students have tons of fun too.”

The excitement of this unforgettable experience remained on the
glittering faces of the students when they boarded buses back to
their EF course towns across England.
