About The Event

Who doesn't love a good dance party? But have you ever had a dance party on your lunch break? Well, you're in luck because we are hosting exactly that. A CITY WIDE dance party to raise awareness to the fact that 1 in 3 women will be the victim of violence in her lifetime, totaling ONE BILLION women and girls. So this Valentine's Day, plan to join us on the lawn of the Bessie Smith Cultural Center (inside the Bessie if it's raining) between 11am and 1pm. Enjoy lunch from one of our local food trucks, and DANCE! We have a list of dynamite local singers signed on to perform mini-sets. Join the party. Be the movement.
