For some of the children in Thailand, dancing is one of their favourite ways to pass the time. And dance has many proven benefits: It can help you to express your emotions, relieve stress, increase physical fitness, improve confidence and self-esteem, and encourage creativity and imagination.
One of the positive outcomes of the recent COVID lockdown was a newfound collaboration with Prisma Dance.
Nicole Lam, Prisma’s founder and director, volunteered to create a special dance just for our ZOE girls. She made detailed videos to teach the girls and the girls practiced diligently on Saturday mornings to perfect their art. The dance was choreographed to a song called, Note to God. This song is an emotional prayer, a letter to God to mend the world of all the bitterness and hate. It talks about finding love, granting faith and giving hope, even when it seems like all hope is gone.
Our 7-member dance team shared their powerful performance with the whole ZOE family recently. It was not only a chance to express their emotions but the girls also received encouragement from their family as they worshiped God in a unique way.
