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.
