I don’t tend to watch a lot of reality television, with the exception of a few talent shows like The Voice, Dancing With the Stars, and America’s Got Talent. The latest of these, World of Dance is in its second season and features judges Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, and Derek Hough. They have dancers from all over the world compete, and some of their backstories and performances have been incredible. One group who danced last night however was particularly outstanding. The Rock Company is a youth dance company from The Rock Center for Dance in Las Vegas. The group ranges in age from 10-16. Living in Las Vegas, they were personally affected by the mass shooting last October that killed 58 people and injured 851 as they innocently were enjoying a music festival. These young people choreographed a dance routine to John Lennon’s Imagine as a tribute. In the words of one of the members:
The world needs more love. Our message is about having hope and being kind to one another.
So, instead of going with my planned post regarding Mr. Trump’s appalling treatment of our allies at the NATO summit in Brussels. I’d like to share this breathtaking and inspirational performance. I hope you’re as blown away as I was.
