I’m pleased to release my latest dance entitled Istimewa, which means ‘special’ in Malay. The 34-count 2 wall nightclub smooth dance is choreographed to a very melodic and emotional Malay song TERLALU ISTIMEWA (translated: TOO SPECIAL) sung by Adibah Noor.
The dance was choreographed as the theme dance for the event DANCE FOR THE CHILDREN’s SMILE (22 June 2014), to create awareness and raise funds for MNT worldwide, a project of Kiwanis Club of Kuala Lumpur. The song is chosen as the lyrics reflects about the feelings of a parent whose child has died. The translation of the song can be found here. It’s truly touching! Get your tissues ready!
Have you heard of MNT? You probably have heard of tetanus or lockjaw, an infection commonly associated with rust injury. MNT stands for Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus that infects mothers and new-born babies when the umbilical cord is cut without proper hygiene or immunisation. Many babies and mothers around the world die from MNT (an average rate of a case in every 9 minutes!!) especially in the developing countries. We Malaysians are lucky as the immunisation is part of Ministry of Health’s provision to all pregnant mothers, but not everyone in the world can afford the vaccine. A course of three injections costs about USD1.80 is all it takes to save a mother and a baby. Come and support this noble and global cause and put a smile on every child’s face! Let’s line dance for charity!
