Sam Underwood charity T-shirts declare: Dance How You Like!

Sound artist and instrument builder has designed some T-shirts in support of Citizens UK

Sam Underwood's new Dance How You Like T-shirts are now up for grabs. He set up his initiative to help raise money for Citizens UK.

“Recent events have left many feeling worried and deflated,” says Underwood. “Others have felt the sharp end of an increase in hate crimes. It feels more important than ever to strive to be open and inclusive. Through this, greater tolerance is born. One of the best expressions of tolerance was a simple phrase uttered by rave MCs: Dance How You Like.

“Old skool raves are places of integration and happy vibes, and the call to dance how you like encapsulated that sentiment beautifully. So, we have created a T-shirt design based on this phrase and we hope you will join us in wearing it with pride. If you feel we should let people talk how they like, wear what they like and Dance How They Like, this is the T-shirt for you.”

The T-shirts come in a variety of colours and can be bought at the starting price of £18. The design also comes in the form of sweatshirts and hoodies.

You can watch various people getting their groove on while wearing the Ts in the video below:
