        Barbara how can he not be a nice guy with you as parents. What a neat video. I am sure he is envied by a lot of people for doing something he seems passionate about and seems to have fun doing it. Very interesting and good for him.

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
