Remember the time we danced for disadvantaged kids?

Earlier this year we held our first annual Danceathon, and raised more than 35,000,000 VND to help disadvantaged kids get ahead!

    6 hours of non-stop dance to help give kids with creative potential their best chance!

    We’d like to send a MASSIVE shout out to our fab teachers: Henry Sun, Veronika, Yanina Dachko, Paola Milan, Cedric Tschirky, and Chau and Maciej from Swing Cool Kidz Da Nang-Hoi An. Thanks for donating your time, bringing your A-game, and helping us dance up a storm!

    Thanks also to Salt Pub and Restaurant for hosting the event—and to their management duo, Elyse and Tony, for making sure we had everything we needed.

    To everyone who attended, danced or donated, thank you so, so much for making our first ever DANCEATHON a HUGE success!
