Easter Seals and dance umbrella’s flash mob video

A collaboration between Easter Seals PEI and Confederation Centre of the Arts’ dance umbrella program culminating in a flash mob performance at Port Charlottetown has been captured in a music video organizers hope will go viral to help support the message of inclusion and accessibility in the arts. Easter Seals PEI Executive Director Kelly Mullaly approached the dance umbrella leadership team with a proposal and they agreed to collaborate. Choreography was created based on “One Step At A Time,” an original song composed and recorded by Island musician and video producer Perry Williams, inspired by Katelyn and Meghan Rogers’ (Easter Seals PEI Ambassadors) motto, “Believe in yourself and don’t  give up.” On July 4, students from various dance umbrella classes and additional community volunteers performed the song for passengers disembarking a cruise ship at Port Charlottetown. The footage has been edited by Williams in a music video being shared on the organizations’ social media channels and on YouTube (youtu.be/2p7BtZIVAWg).
