Dance is a way to communicate without using words. We hope that you can cherish this “meeting and dancing”, especially In this era where you simply connect on social media.
While I was traveling around Asia, I strongly felt that the friendship that I made there has surpassed politics and religion and allowed me to be one with everyone.
I share this dance with everyone in Asia wishing to create the world they want. By passionately dancing and clashing with one another, I’m sure we will create something new!
I look forward to meeting you at the venue!
We will be waiting your challenge at the GATSBY CREATIVE AWARDS! !
