Zakiya Jones, age 13, will perform with GLOW in Motion and Men in Motion dancers on March 14, 2020 in ‘Unity.’
This is your first year dancing at Moving in the Spirit. What do you think about it?
I think it’s amazing. Like, it’s very uplifting and even if I’m having a bad day it’s still cheers me up.
Your spring show is called ‘Unity.’ What does unity mean to you?
It means that no one’s discriminating against each other and no one’s being treated unfairly.
Why do you think it’s important to do a show about unity right now?
I think it’s important to do a show about unity right now because there’s a lot of injustice in the world and it could help us remember that all of us should be treated the same.
What do you think you and other young people can do to help create more unity in the world?
Well, if you see someone being treated unfairly you should tell someone. You should speak up for them. You shouldn’t keep quiet. You should always speak up for yourself and others.
What are you looking forward to the most about this show?
I feel like it’s gonna be really fun, and I’m proud to show our work.
What’s been a challenge that you’ve had to overcome in preparing for the show?
I feel like all the dances are very challenging and it’s sometimes hard to memorize everything. So I’ve just been practicing a lot.
Why should people come see the show?
Because it’s going to be amazing and we can show off all of our hard work!
