In response to the global lock-down, VMC Global Trainers found new ways to connect community using rhythm and our commitment to collaboration. The video below features over 250 people from 17 different countries, playing together while staying apart. We look forward to being of service as we reemerge from this period of isolation and help rebuild and revitalize our communities.
