Like many other artists and organizations The Backyard also feels the big impact Covid-19 has. Spread throughout Europe we cannot dance together or share our dance with you!
So we thought it was time to take some action and organize something together, The Backyard and you!
We challenge you to learn a segment from the performance It's Gonne Be Horse and share your video. Don't worry, we go step by step!
Below you find 5 short tutorials to learn the dance.
If you're up for it come and dance with us! And if you wanna be part of the aftermovie, take a video and share it with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Post your version of the dance on Facebook or Instagram and don't forget to mention #thebackyardchallenge, and ofcourse to challenge your friends!
