GET READY FOR
2020 was a rough year, but now we're rising up to take our year back by doing the thing we love most. At Project1, you belong, you matter, and you have an irreplaceable mark to leave on this world. Now, we're leaving that mark together as we dance, collaborate, and unite over 16 countries in creative expression. Welcome to Project1.
UNITING THE WORLD THROUGH DANCE
how Project1 works:
sign up by March 20.
SIGN UPS ARE NOW CLOSED!
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 May. Team leaders may also share the zoom link with their dance team members.
This maiden voyage of Project1 is invite-only, so we're not yet recruiting any participants from the public. But keep an eye out for Project2 and Project3 in the future when we'll be opening up slots to everyone!
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!
Download all the instructional materials below and begin practicing with your team.
The song is "Verge" by Owl City featuring Aloe Blacc. We chose this song because it's upbeat, energetic, and uplifting for those who are making a new start.
Check out the song below and use this when you practice with your team.
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.
Find the full choreography breakdown and guide in this 10-video playlist
