Dance for Kindness 2016
I want to share with everyone what a special time Dance for Kindness was for our dance family. Some of our students along with members of our Community participated in Dance for Kindness Sunday, November 13th.
Dance for Kindness is a worldwide event in celebration of World Kindness Day. Groups from across the globe join together to perform a Kindness Freezemob/Flashmob to the same song with the same choreography. It’s a really FUN way to show kindness and positivity in our Kansas communities. Along the way we provide smiles, laughter and of course, dance!
I loved being a part of this event because it reinforces my belief that a little kindness can go a long way. Sometimes when things are out of our comfort zone we stay quiet. We don’t offer a smile or give that extra hand, because we don’t know what the reaction will be. We fear that we will be rejected, or think that it’s not our place to say anything, or that maybe offering help would be intruding on someone else’s business. This may be true to some extent, but putting yourself out there and offering a kind word to someone or offering a hand to someone you see struggling not only affects the person, but can change your whole day as well.
Offering kindness and helping others
only leads to a happier, kinder YOU.
I’m happy to announce that we’re going to continue partnering with Randy Floyd and his organization, BeKindKansas. Together we’ll be trying to remind people that kindness is important and that it can change our community and unite us. Our kindness flashmobs will be ongoing as we try to spread the word about the benefits of kindness. I will let everyone know when we put on our next one to see if we can get even more people involved!
Thanks to everyone who participated, I loved seeing your happy faces there!!!
