How does your work engage with the theme ‘The World at Home’?

Lockdown has reconnected many people to online exercise classes be it dance, workouts, yoga. This has enabled us to build the foundations of good mental, physical, and spiritual health during the Pandemic. Friends locally to all around the world have shared links to exercise programs and built networks to check-in and celebrate each others achievements. Mums and Dads have revisited their youth, dancing with their children. Personally, the freedom and joy that music and dance give, remind me of my childhood, where I spent hours everyday dancing with my beautiful friends.
