Soul Defenders


We march in defence of the soul. We dance to connect to movements of the heart. We let it burst out from within. Not contained by judgemental blocks, but embracing and releasing the soul that rocks.

With 14 tonne ex-military cargo truck, the ‘SOUL DEFENDER’, ADP’s Soul Defenders disguise peculiar army drills, extemporaneous body moves and soulful grooves that uphold the values of  joy, spontaneous play and soul.

Do you wanna dance?
