Celebrating Dancing for Change

Ruth Ayres has a link-up on weekends where people link to posts that are celebrations about their week. I love this reminder to celebrate every week.

Today I was able to go to a practice for One Billion Rising. It's a movement that calls for an end to violence against women and girls. One of the ways they draw attention to the cause is for people to come together in public places. In our area, we will be dancing on Valentine's Day in our local mall. Here is information from the website:

"In 2016, the theme of Revolution continues with a call to focus on marginalized women and to bring national and international focus to their issues; to bring in new artistic energy; to amplify Revolution as a call for system change to end violence against women and girls; to call on people to rise for others, and not just for ourselves"

I had a wonderful time today with some fantastic dancers at a local dance studio as we learned the dance. Dancing makes me smile and to do it with so many others for a united purpose makes it even more energizing and joyful.


  1. Sounds like fun and a great cause!

  2. Wow, Crystal, that is marvelous. How fun it will be to do that. And good for you for the support, too.

  3. Violence against women and girls is a sad reality. Lot of it is hidden. You are dancing for an important cause
