Do you want to make friends in other countries? Do you want to interact with languages other than your mother tongue? Do you be inspired by talking to people from many different backgrounds? Do you want to know about the cultures of other countries? If so, we welcome you to join ASIAN BEAT Online 2!
People who have roots in Asia will meet online for about a month and create a dance and video for our original song.
It is often said that Asian countries are “close but far,” but we will seek to close the distance between our hearts with face-to-face exchanges and through the creation of works. We are striving for a world where diverse people acknowledge each other’s differences, but first, why don’t we try to strengthen the connections between people living here in Asia?
During the program we will spend a lot of time communicating between people with various backgrounds. As unfamiliar languages fly around, we will enjoy interacting with new ways of thinking during the process of creating a single work together. Together we will overcome the barriers of language and distance with a smile. Then the feeling of accomplishment at the moment of completing our goal will be so fulfilling and irresistible!
Even though we will be dancing and singing, the most important things is to have fun. Experience or skill in singing and dancing is unnecessary. We welcome first time performers with open arms!
In order to recruit Cast members (participants) we will hold open information sessions! It is necessary to join at least one information session in order to apply for the program. Please join whichever one is most convenient for you!
