This film series was a Movement for Hope project with a group of talented young dancers, directed and produced by the Gwen Rakotovao company. It features prestigious international dancers across several genres of dance, including contemporary dance, locking, waacking, jazz, and tap dance. The project was inspired by the Move Hope Project, which featured awareness for two movement-debilitating conditions called Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Motor Neurone Disease (MND). The Move Hope Project’s mission was to connect science and art in a unique way to raise awareness for MND and MS. The two diseases currently have no cure. The GRC video series uses various definitions of Move, Hope, and Project to raise awareness and inspire others!
