Do Your Dance in Kaohsiung 19/06/2013

DYD Project DYD (Do Yor Dance) ties in with the WDSF World DanceSport Games 2013 Kaohsiung.


When more than 700 athletes gather in the Taiwanese port city between 16 and 20 September this year, DanceSport will be the order of the day at the K-Arena and elsewhere. Competitions and workshops in the different dance styles should induce the Kaohsiung residents to give DanceSport a try themselves. For this reason, WDSF challenged the German choreographer Dirk Heidemann to come up with a choreography that could easily be learned and performed by everybody - young and old - and that could make for the Games' very own dance.

"Do Your Dance in Kaohsiung" is the slogan of the inaugural World DanceSport Games. When thousands of Kaohsiung residents join 800 games participants in a flash mob-style performance to the sounds of Donna Summer's "Stamp Your Feet," we will likely witness a magic moment, one that only dance can produce.

Below is the teaser for the DYD Project, a series of instructional videos were also produced and sent to Kaohsiung. Training at schools, universities and even residences for seniors should be underway shortly.
