His most important challenge hit closer to home — when he decided to return to Jaffa to teach Jewish and Palestinian Israeli children how to “dance with the enemy” in the documentary “Dancing in Jaffa”.
In this talk, Pierre teaches the art of respect through ballroom dancing in a world of technology, isolation, and human interaction.

Why do we dance? African-American social dances started as a way for enslaved Africans to keep cultural traditions alive and retain a sense of inner freedom. They remain an affirmation of identity and independence. In this electric demonstration, packed with live performances, choreographer, educator and TED Fellow Camille A. Brown explores what happens when communities let loose and express themselves by dancing together.

In February 2014 Michael & Joanna took part in a unique journey to Cuba. “The Cuban Experience” was all about research into authentic Cuban music and dance styles. It was the first time ever that Cuban authentic style dancers performed together with the dancers of the International Latin-American competitive style.
