Hollywood Rally in Support of Ukraine features world’s first dance flash mob, as communities unite against Russian invasion
The event included the world’s first dance flash mob.
Choreographers say dance is a way to express their frustration and anger at the deadly destruction of their homeland.
“We mean we can see and feel how our people are dying, our children, our women are being raped, and this is the 21st century,” said choreographer Tania Spektor. “If we don’t stop it now, it could be the start of World War III.”
Nearly two dozen dancers took part in the performance outside the Dolby Theater in the heart of Hollywood.
The group also sang the Ukrainian national anthem.
It’s all part of the “Stand With Ukraine” movement, which holds rallies almost every weekend to raise awareness of the war and the need for global support for Ukraine.
“I would like to support our country and our people because it is really important to draw attention to what is really happening there,” said Yuriy Volnskyy. “Because right now there’s so much fake news, and we just want to show the world the truth.”
The aim is to continue to draw attention to the war and the innocent lives lost.
Many participants say they must continue to make their voices heard as the situation in Ukraine continues to deteriorate.
“I think it’s important to show people that there is support, there is support for Ukraine,” said Marcel Miller. “Everyone should be against these cruelties. It doesn’t matter if I am Ukrainian or not. I am a human. As a human, it is my duty to defend other humans.”
