“I am so excited to be performing with Endorphina at ICE London and getting to show to the attendees that Dancers Come In All Sizes! This is my first time ever performing live in Europe and I couldn’t be more excited!”

Endorphina´s stand was buzzing all the time.

Provider´s slides and socks with designs of successful game titles were the most popular prizes and made more than one attendee of the show come back to their stand for a second chance to win it.
