Review

Mark Stutzman’s short promotional video shines a spotlight on Brenda’s Body Shop community-led initiative, uniting dance enthusiasts to recreate Michael Jackson’s iconic ‘Thriller’ dance.

Brenda’s Body Shop emerges not just as a dance studio but as a community hub, as the film hints at the exhilarating and collaborative effort that has already transpired. Beyond its entertainment value, the project has a philanthropic angle, having raised funds for commendable causes, underscoring the positive impact of community engagement through the art of dance.
