The mission was always to bring different people together who love to do the same and have a passion for movement.



We love to reunite all kind of people - no matter what you work - no matter where you are base - no matter what color your skin has... inclusion is the key as we all love to move.

If you love to move and share some movements and other skills. You are most welcome to join in and shine your light.
