On June 15, 2019, Global Water Dances (GWD) organized dance performances in over 100 locations throughout the world.  The goal of these events is to highlight a local water issue and improve the audiences’ understanding of the importance of water in their community. Each performance took place near a local body of water, using locally-based music.  RUVIVAL partnered with GWD for this event and we present eight dance groups of this global event.
