Local residents plan to dance for a cause on Valentine's Day


Several Michiana residents will be dancing for a cause on Valentine's Day.  One Billion Rising in Michiana was practicing their four minute dance routine Saturday at the Music Village in South Bend.  They're dancing to raise awareness for domestic violence and violence against women.  And the dancing won't just be happening in Michiana, people all over the world will be participating in the event.  Karen Decocker-Geist of One Billion Rising in Michiana said they've made connections with people across the globe in places like Thailand, Bangladesh, South America and more.  "Often times women feel trapped and kinda imprisoned and dancing is a way to express yourself and crosses all social and economical barriers.  All cultures have dance as part of their lives," said Decocker-Geist.

The dance will take place at the Grill on IUSB's campus at noon Valentine's Day.  Anyone is welcome to come out and participate even if you don't know the dance.  Everyone doing the dance will be wearing pink and red.  If you do want to learn the dance routine it is posted on One Billion Rising in Michiana's Facebook Page and at http://onebillionrising.org/
