The COVID-19 pandemic has been a very tough time for the world. The past 14 months have been full of uncertainty and restrictions and - ironically in such a pandemic- it has been difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle when “stay at home” orders of quarantine have left our routines to stay active no longer consistent. The minds and bodies of the Basel community have been under an extraordinary amount of stress and, as we know, movement plays a big role in mental and physical health recovery. When this pandemic is past us, it is time to change this story.
#KeepBaselMoving is an initiative aimed to revive the struggling dance and fitness industry through an organized and united effort to inspire and educate the Basel public. Through various movement workshops, performances, lectures, installations, creative advertisements and community events, we plan to not only to get children and adults moving again, but also introduce them to arts and culture and - most importantly - give them tools and resources to create fun and healthy habits for the future.
#KeepBaselMoving is not only a “post COVID stimulus” but also a way to inspire the people of Basel while promoting community and teamwork among Basel businesses. We see this as an opportunity to promote a positive message about movement and it's impact on health as well as bring attention to the diversity of the offerings in Basel and the importance of the Basel movement community. Through the support of corporate sponsors, we can create and nurture a high-quality lasting platform, open to all ages and all body types.
