Marking the beginning of summertime, May also brightened Kinergie Studio and the dancers’ lives with many exciting performances.
The month would be remembered by the long rehearsal days soaked in sweat, filled with ideas being shared and decisions being made. The whole creative process required a great amount of effort and patience, yet brought so much joy and deep understanding. Coming from all walks of life, people gathered at Kinergie Studio with their passion for dance and dared to challenge their own body capability, mental and emotional strength. At the end of the month, everyone had a sense of transformation and growth as an artist.
