DANCE UNION STUDIOS x MAXON x LIKE BEAR PRESENTS: EMBRACE
Dance Union teamed up with Australian artists Maxon and Like Bear for a Virtual Workshop titled
EMBRACE: An empowering dance workshop (guided by Dance Union) with live music (from Maxon and Like Bear) and a whole lot of freedom to do it your way.
Embrace was a space developed for dancers to have a laugh, reconnect, and feel better!
This was also perfect for those who have never danced before as this workshop was a way to let your mind take a seat while your body takes the stage.
We were blown away by the response we had and would like to thank everyone who joined us on the 29th August for this event.
All money raised for this workshop was donated to R U OKAY? Day - an organisation that brings awareness to Mental Health and encourages us to meaningfully connect with others, which has been more important than ever - especially during the global pandemic.
