“I rise for women who have suffered psychological violence.

“Dance is the primal response to life – dance and song. We rejoice. We return to claiming our lives. We are embodied and women in solidarity. We heal as we have for centuries. We soothe and claim each other again for life.”  ~Ann Cole, BC-DMT

Once again on this February 14, millions of men and women around the world are rising and dancing to protest the one in three women on the planet who are victims of violence. As dance/movement therapists around the globe join in this ongoing revolution, we remember and honor all those who have danced to raise their voices, and to demand change.
