– The dance is meant to inspire and transport people to the place of experience and expression. One’s dance will be an introduction to the various parts of the body; the dance will be an opportunity for people to experience and express their creativity and strength. The dance will also be an escape from the mundane world and help people learn to be more expressive in their social behaviour. In all situations, people’s dancing need not be limited by a set of rules and regulations.
Who are our donors? – To fund our dance we are raising funds via our fundraising project! Our current donors support our mission in its entirety. Each donation contributes to the work we are doing and is very much appreciated! Click here to learn more about our fundraising project.
