Wild River Dance Video Winners

Ian Elwood

Thank you to everyone for making the Wild River Dance contest a success! And now...

The Winners

Mira Manickam is our first place winner! She recruited dancers from 15 locations across the United States. Her video features an original rap, beat track and samples with choreographed and coordinated dance moves that people in each different location learned through a video tutorial on YouTube. Amazing!

Second place goes to Brad Lehrer. Being a trucker gave Brad a great opportunity to visit many rivers. He parked his rig (safely) by the side of the road in various locations and filmed himself dancing by each one.

Third place goes to Liane Greeff of South Africa; her video features some amazing Motchongolo Dancing in celebration of Lowveld Rivers.

Honorable mentions:

 Make sure to watch the rest of the video responses, they are all really good!

Keep it flowing!
