Second team implemented the "Rhythm of Silence" contemporary dance production project for deaf children. Music is everywhere. Some of them can’t hear it. But deep in their heart, they always feel the rhythm. On this project of dance, fellows collaborated with the school #29 of children with special needs. Students divided into groups and learned their favorite types of dances. On April 25th, the project team gathered the students, their parents and teachers at Ancore Concert Hall to present the result of their project. The students who participated in the project performed on the stage and showed what they can, what they can do. By understanding through body language, they have learned how to portray a message using body movements, and how to interpret body signals from others. Some people has ears however they never truly understand what music is. But these children were feeling the music with their body and mind, and were dedicating themselves into it. Third team implemented cultural heritage project that intended to transmit the ancient long song from the culture-bearer to younger generation.
