Dancing is often considered a recreational activity and all too often overlooked for the positive physical,mental and social health qualities. People will not feel lonely when they dance with other people.

They are more healthy and happier after dance with friends and neighbors. They will forget the troubles and the sadness during dancing. People change a lot after keep dancing. Our project can help people meet new friends and get good relationships with their neighbors.
