About The Event

1 Billion Rising - Flagler Beach will be held on Sunday, February 19 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm. At this event, we will dance to rise as part of the 1BR world-wide revolution, in solidarity against exploitation of women. It will include more than an hour of soul-stirring music and joyful movement, combining elements of dance, yoga, and Tai Chi. Accompanied by uplifting music and empowering lyrics, the simple choreography is intended for people of all ages and abilities. There will also be a Nia flash mob, danced to the 1BR anthem, "Break the Chain". Join us as we rise with dance and song - a community that does not accept sexual and domestic violence. The event will be led by Nancy Kern, Certified Yoga and Nia instructor. All donations will go to the Family Life Center located in Flagler County, which provides no-cost services to individuals and families experiencing Domestic or Sexual Violence.
