H+ | Dreamer. LOVER. FIGHTER. DANCER.®

The dancer advocacy campaign aimed at encouraging EVERYONE to dance and explore movement. We are looking ahead to a world where all forms of dance and all expressions of emotion and movement are ubiquitous and a part of everyone's lives.

Our dancers' take on the #wildthoughtschallenge.
The purpose of this advocacy campaign is first and foremost to celebrate self-expression. That being sexy, provocative and self-expressive is not an invitation for lude or disrespectful behavior.

Also to highlight thoughts that women face daily as they go about their daily lives and interacting with other men. We crowdsourced thoughts from hundreds of women and picked the ones which were most prevalent. This video is asking for men's support in eradicating violence, harassment and abuse against women. To acknowledge the problem being faced by many women daily. And to spark dialogue on those issues for positive conclusion.

Will he get the wrong idea?"
