Dance Bringing People Together



When you look at the news now days, you can’t help believe that we are all divided. Yes, indeed we all have our own points of views. We have formulated our perceptions based on our experiences. Indeed, that is what makes us part of human race. Through the differences, we can learn from each other. Setting the differences aside, there is universal bonding though music and dance.

Matt Bray took on a huge project to prove that dance can indeed bring everyone together. Man Travels the World to show strangers 1 dance and puts It All Together for spectacular video.

Turn Around Your Life

Matt loaded up his car and embarked on a 10,000-mile road trip. He created a YouTube channel called ProjectOneLife and in two months’ time, met 100 people who learned a dance routine Matt choreographed to the song “Gone” by JR JR. Matt traveled from city to city and places in-between that included rural settings, music festivals and other spots. That meant the backdrops behind these people’s dance routines varied, which only added to the final product.

After all of the dancers were videotaped performing the routine, Matt then spliced everyone’s moves together into one big compilation. Some of the dancers’ moves will blow you away and the grins on their faces are priceless. It’s amazing to see that in a world where sadness and ill will abounds, complete strangers were willing to dance with Matt and be recorded doing it for all the world to see. You have to watch this video. Your spirits will instantly be lifted after you view it!

Turn Around Your Life

This video was beyond incredible. It gave me love for the song and it was just amazing to watch and had such a warm feeling to it. Also the dance was weirdly hypnotic. Matt has lifted the spirits of millions of viewers.

Yes, after all is said and done, there is goodness in all of us. The humanity shines through the music and rhythm to dance to.

Lyrics for Gone

I’ve made up my mind over and over
Keep pressing rewind but I’m getting older
Tried every door, don’t know who I’m looking for
And I’ve made up my mind over and over
I can’t be everything you want me to be
I can’t be everything you want me to be
Finally, I can see the light through the leaves
But it’s all gone
But it’s all gone
What comes from the ground now is returning
It’s all the same sound and my ears are burning
In some strange home, don’t know who I’m working for
I’ve made up my mind over and over
I can’t be everything you want me to be
I can’t be everything you want me to be
Finally, I…
