On Saturday, May 23rd, 2020, STARS CGI and PowerPlay hosted #SelfCareSaturday: Virtual Dance Party, as a follow up from our initial #SelfCareSaturday event. This Dance Party served as a safe space for our community of young people to reconnect, express themselves and reduce any anxiety they may be experiencing due to COVID-19.
We reintroduced Nike Master Trainer Akira Armstrong, and her Pretty Big Movement dancers to teach us some of the latest TikTok dance moves. Attendees learned both ‘Savage’ by Meg Thee Stallion feat Beyoncê and ‘Toosie Slide’ by Drake. After learning the moves, the young people in attendance had the opportunity to battle each other for prizes.
