About The Event

*****PLEASE NOTE THE CHANGE******Our Chester County Rises team has decided to go ahead and make a decision for everyone's safety to cancel our outdoor Rising. Instead, we invite you to rise from your own home or place of work at 6:00pm. Gather together or dance solo! Turn a camera on to capture the moment. Post to FB and also send your footage to Angie Williams at [email protected] who has generously volunteered to donate her time to edit all the videos together to make one collective video for Chester County Rises 2014. Let's still be a part of this global movement in our own creative way! WE WILL RISE ABOVE THIS WINTER CHALLENGE!

About The Organizer

Nora Fitzgerald

Nora Fitzgerald has been working in the Chester County area at various schools, camps and workshops for 13 years encouraging teens and children to explore, laugh and free themselves through the journey of theatre and dance. Her dance program Confidance has been in her heart for years and finally became a reality in 2012 thanks to the supportive team at Turks Head Yoga! Nora has directed/choreographed past productions at West Chester's Bayard Rustin High School including Les Miserables and West Side Story and is currently rehearsing the magical production Peter Pan to be performed in early March. In the Fall of 2013, Nora attended Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in the Berkshire mountains and became a certified Let Your Yoga Dance® teacher. This program explores the chakras through dance, yoga and breath.

In February 2013, in coordination with Turks Head and the Domestic Violence Center of Chester County, Nora launched West Chester’s first “Rising”, a dance celebration that took place on Valentine’s Day as part of the movement One Billion Rising to help create awareness and help put a stop to violence against women. She is excited and honored to step forward again to help lead an incredibly powerful team of spirits to put together West Chester Rises 2014!
