These dance competitions carry a deeper meaning with the objective of giving a better life to marginalised children under the Edufun programme.

Moreover, from these activities, the public can see for themselves that dance is a healthy lifestyle, although some people may have a negative perception towards some genre of dances such as hip hop and break dance.
