Soul Defenders


We march in defence of the soul. We dance to connect to the 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 a 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?
