ABOUT
"DANCE WITH UKRAINE"
"Dance with Ukraine" is a unique experiment of bringing together people from all over the world in an artistic action of solidarity around movement.
Every day at 1pm, people dance, draw and walk to a Ukrainian song.

The action is broadcast live on the internet and regularly welcomes people living in Ukraine (Lviv, Kyiv, etc.). It is an opportunity to exchange on their daily life, the ways to support them and to understand their reality.
What if I can't dance?
Every day of war has its own song, its own way of moving. Presence is an act of resistance. So we show our presence every day by creative action that brings us together through the movement. We fight with Ukraine for democratic values such as the idea of freedom, beauty, poetry, art, connections between human beings across borders
Why a daily presence?

How to join the movement?
Everyone can move. Just fingers flexing and extending is already dancing. And digital technology makes this possible: close-ups, filmed shadows, depth effects... there is no need to engage your whole body in the image. You don't even have to "dance" per se. Do you like tinkering, gardening, painting, walking? Then you are already a dancer!
JOIN US!
After dancing, I feel a sense of happiness, whereas just before, I was sad.
