People meet with the same goal: full of energy, light and desire to move. Dance helps them connect and make them dare, by challenging and supporting each other, they take the risk of living life and letting the miracles happen. Their bodies become their minds and their minds become their bodies. Feeling each one of the smallest movements around, they let the sparkling things around in and project them out.
