About the project
Lately people are less and less moving around because of modern lifestyle that is influenced by products tools that eases the daily work but kills the creativity and movement, and social media which causes people sit on their laptop for hours and avoid real life outside. These reasons cause anti-social youth dependent on their laptops and smart phones, with lack of self-confidence, unhealthy lifestyle, and increased stress. We want to motivate youth to move and exercise for a better alternative option rather than misuse/overuse of internet in their spare times. We want to focus on dancing rather than any other sports because while dancing, individuals stay in their comfort zone and they don’t feel pressure of the exercise.
