LESS IS MORE is a dance initiative created by Neelam Kumari. It’s about dancing elegantly, gracefully and supporting ladies who have had cancer, or lost family and friends to cancer. Lady artists around the globe will perform a dance choreography, in which you can participate as long as you have at least an improvers dance level.

It’s a dance experience dedicated to women to empower and inspire their dance journey through simple and elegant choreography with other artists and dancers from around the world. The aim of the project is for all the women who join the group to learn a choreography created and taught also by women.

There will be an interactive seminar one of the evenings, called “Ladies at the round table”, where you will meet with other ladies and invited speakers. With a wonderful Indian and African cuisine, for you to taste delicious flavors!

This event is for any age, race, religion, culture or size, to unite and empower women through a dance video.

Solo female travelers are also welcome, you could share a room with other ladies or have single accommodation for your own.

You can have many options for your length of stay, and therefore, for extra time to get to know this fantastic city.

Lisbon is the largest city in Portugal, but you will be surprised that is very cozy. This fantastic city was built on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean and next to the mouth of the Tajo River, which is well-known for its bridges and trams.

Kizomba is very special in Lisbon as many of you know, this dance originated in Angola back in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Today it is a very well known dance throughout Europe, which has become very popular in recent years and It dances in the main European cities, but the first European site where this discipline arrived was to Portugal in the 90s, since many immigrants from Angola and Cape Verde live here.

So if you want to have a great experience with big impact we invite you take part in this event, you will have fun, dance, met new friends with your same interest, get to know a new place and collaborate with the Mcmillan Cancer Suport initiative.

So sign up for it and let’s dance at Less Is More!
