Why this? Why Now?

On February 24, 2022, Russia invaded the sovereign, peaceful Ukraine and caused the largest refugee crisis since WWII. Over six million

Ukrainians have fled with little more than a change of clothes, a bag of food and their loved ones. While they have left much behind, the

Ukrainian people brought their language, culture and arts. #danceforukraine honors their resiliency and hope for a peaceful return.

Participants learning the choreography will:

  • be added to the #danceforukraine Participant Contact List

  • be permitted to teach it to others 

  • identify events (outdoor festivals and other gatherings) for flash mob activities

  • organize flash mob "happenings"

Organizers will be provided with:

  • Movement Score

  • Kyiv Air Raid Drill Sound Score (5:46 min)

  • #danceforukraine Participant Contact List
