We have danced another dance. Porto was very kind to us and we were dancing on many rhythms. Meeting, sharing and dancing is what we did all three days as we were warmly received in this beautiful city. Thank you teachers, participants, University of Sports Porto, and Diogo Ferreira, our silent photographer to capture our dance. Thank you Projeto A_ju_dança for making this happen.
The last day all 45 dancers took over sunny Trinidade square for the street parade. We have finished the festival with Finnish team Noora Västinen & Vea Vainio from Helsinki (Naura Tanssi Hengitä)
Now it’s official!
MeetShareDance Association is one of the winners of EU Award #BeInclusive sport 2017, an award promoting social inclusion through sport. Thank you ErasmusPlus and European commission to believe in our international integrated dance festival. We felt like rock stars yesterday in Brussels.
