Ahmed Al-Ghariz, a 30 year-old dancer, and his friends are the brains behind a heartwarming arts project that gives young people and children living on the Gaza Strip a new lease of life by teaching them how to dance.

Camps Breakerz, a dance school based in the al-Nusairat Refugee camp, is training some 60 young people aged 6 to 20 contemporary dance moves.

Al-Ghariz, who moved to Germany in 2015, has returned to the camp for the Gaza is Alive 2019 event.
