Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi continues his humanitarian work by associating himself with a social cause where he will interact with autistic children and teach them dance steps.
Arts in Motion (AiM), a dance academy, will be conducting its annual Festival in Chembur July 23 and the theme will be "Dance with Joy, Accepting Responsibility, Understanding Autism".
"I am very happy to participate in AiM 2010 where the spotlight is on helping autistic children to dance with joy and embrace life fully. It is very interesting to see how AiM can leverage dance as an art form to heal lesser privileged people and give them immense joy," said Vivek
The event is an attempt to create awareness and inculcate integration of those suffering from autism.
"Every year, AiMF chooses one particular socially relevant theme in a bid to promote dance amongst various sections of society. AiMF 2007 revolved around challenging arthritis, in 2008 it broke barriers by embracing street children and last year it urged people to fight cancer.
"This year, we have brought autistic children to the fore by teaching them to use dance as a therapy," revealed Aanchal Gupta, AiM's proprietor.
