How to catwalk dance

Enchanting the post-COVID city
If COVID-19 has proven anything, it’s that cities need to adapt and change. This past year across the world, they moved quickly to prototype new ways of experiencing and exploring the city during a global health crisis. They’ve become more pedestrian and bike friendly, embraced the use and creation of outdoor public spaces, and offered safe moments of fun and delight.
Created for and during the pandemic, Walk Walk Dance is a series of music-making lines that explore how participation and interaction can create new spaces for play in cities. Let’s play with physical distancing rules, one, two, three steps at a time.
Place des Arts - Montréal
How it works
It’s simple: step, jump, roll or dance on the lines to trigger music. This project was designed to be accessible to everyone, whether they are on foot or on wheels: all the technology is enclosed in a chain of boxes and planters, weighted down with local plants. Lines are simply drawn, painted or taped.
This is the best time ever to think of a walkable city.
Wouter Vanstiphout, Quoted from The Guardian "Smart lifts, lonely workers, no towers or tourists: architecture after coronavirus" April 13, 2020
Making cities dance
Walk Walk Dance is a roving project — designed for struggling cities that need to quickly revive their public spaces in the wake of COVID-19. Created for temporary displays, the installation adapts to all pathways and streets, making it easy to deploy in diverse urban settings.
Because every city needs a dancing strategy.

As an organization dedicated to the creation of shared and inclusive public space, we acknowledge that our work takes place on the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Métis, and many other Indigenous nations.
Tkaronto, “the place in the water where the trees are standing”, is now home to many diverse Indigenous people. We recognize them as the past, present and future caretakers of this land. We would like to pay our respects to all who have gathered and will continue to gather in this place. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work together to care for The Bentway lands and act as stewards of the space.

Barefoot models dancing on the catwalk delighted the audienceBarefoot models dancing on the catwalk delighted the audience

On the popular site Reddit, a video excerpt from a fashion show went viral, where models in African clothes appeared on the catwalk and danced incendiary. The performance was attended by dark-skinned women with magnificent forms, who not only walked barefoot, but also absolutely did not correspond to the usually severe and unemotional models from world fashion shows. Girls in ethnic outfits demonstrated several dance moves and delighted the audience with their synchronicity and emancipation.
The online community was also enthusiastic about the trendy dance party, and the post garnered 55,000 likes in a short time.
The best part is that these ladies are barefoot, which means they don't have to worry about tripping, falling and breaking their ankle while wearing any ridiculous heels.
This video made me happy!
I have watched this video 12 times already. And I'm not sure I want to stop.
This is a fashion show that radiates light. Don't even try to invite me if your show doesn't look like this!
The coolest thing is that this video not only made me smile, but also realized that I became a little happier after watching it.
