β€œIt’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness”

– Tori Drew
Local Dance Artist / One Dance UK

Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry, be happy now


– Shelley Eva Haden Dance Artist / BDN Marketeer
Inspired by Tony’s dad who listens to this song every morning since being quarantined.


Bobby McFerrin – Don’t Worry Be Happy

β€œMe and my housemate made a long bucket list of things to do – including many craft related things such as quilting, soap making, candle making, walks and take camera out, GoPro and drone, grow plants, upcycle clothes, learn BSL, jigsaw puzzles”

– Lisa Sofia Ziemann
Dance Artist / #ChoreoMatch Dancer
