GET READY FOR
We invite you to the next edition of Project1. A new season and a new song. Open your minds and souls as we take the journey together. Inhale and exhale and let's begin.
Music speaks to me and brings a perfect harmony,
More than ever we need a connection of living
and a purpose of giving,
For today and all our tomorrows
We will believe and trust in each other to receive,
Wherever you are ... We are.
Wherever we are … You are.
Connected together yet worlds apart
and knowing we are in each other’s heart,
Dance and share your soul to be
and all your culture and traditions we will see,
In one beat, one moment, one life, one song…
We can all make a great change for the world to belong,
Sounds From The Heart is just the beginning…
For us to be one family together and all our new beginning.

how Project1 works:
sign up by October 26.
Team leaders must sign up on behalf of their team. The email you use to sign up is the one we'll send the zoom link to for the World Watch Party in December. Team leaders may also share the zoom link with their dance team members.
We will follow up on email with instructions for next steps and your assigned team number. Please add project1@HeartGlobal.org to your contact list so nothing ends up in spam!
Follow all the instructional materials below and begin practicing with your team.
"Sounds from the Heart" is a Heart Global original - written, performed, and recorded by our very own Heart Global team of artists.
To listen to and download the song, you must first be a registered participant. After registering, you will receive the password and link to the participants-only page which contains the downloadable song.
The opening and ending sections are choreographed by Heart Global. Everything in between is up to you! For that middle section, create your own choreography, choose your location, wear whatever you like! Express whatever you feel in the music, challenge yourself, and try out new ideas.
