Matt Harding dances around the world–“badly,” as he says–but in doing so he has learned a lot about what it means to be connected to people in our world. I came across Matt’s story through the This I Believe essay project. You can hear him talking there about how his view of the world has been changed through dancing, and you can see some of his fast footwork below. It just might brighten your day. Hit play below to take a look.

You can learn more about Matt, see more videos, and hear what he’s up to at his web site: Where the Hell is Matt?
