Countdown to DS2DIO launch: 5 days
Because dance can move you, seduce you, make you believe in magic.
‘Each (style) as powerful as the next that expresses the people, the culture, the place that they come from. A moving record of our human existence. It is how far you can stretch your soul.’
I originally wanted to pick only a few to put up but I was watching the videos over and over again – each and every single one of them is so inspiring in their own way, it seems somewhat blasphemous not to post all of them up. Running wild, running free. Enjoy!
