This mural celebrates multiculturalism within the art of dance. Starting from the left side, there are two large figures from the Chai Folk ensemble, which is a Jewish Folk dance group who practice in a space near this building. Next to these two is a male Chai Dancer, repeated in a stop motion-like fashion performing a dance move. This leads to an Indigenous hoop dancer in the very centre. On the right side, Caribbean folk dancers are depicted, following two Chinese Lion dancers. Along this vibrant, colourful scene are wave lines meant to represent different rhythms of music. The dancers ride along these lines as they move.
