#16 count intro

"Hold On" was inspired by and choreographed as my gift to the young men with autism that I work with.
"Hold On" has now become part of our daily routine at work and the aim of this project is to present the young men
with a compilation video at Christmas of themselves and others dancing their dance.
The young men adore this song and show great excitement dancing the Introduction & Ending.
If you would like to be included in our video please send your recordings by email or WhatsApp before December 17th (details below).
