Dance/movement therapy (DMT) students at AUNE marked V-Day: One Billion Rising with a flash mob dance on February 12, in the upper and lower lobbies of the AUNE campus building.
The dance was just one of many V-Day events around the globe. One Billion Rising—an invitation for one billion women to “strike, dance, rise” to demand an end to violence against women and girls—marked the fifteenth anniversary of V-Day on February 14.
Led by Christina Devereaux, core faculty in the Department of Applied Psychology, the DMT students performed “Break the Chain,” the V-Day anthem written and produced by songwriter and producer Tena Clark, and choreographed by Debbie Allen.
A raffle and cupcake sale raised more than $500 for the Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention (MCVP), to support its Anti-Violence Against Women program.
Watch DMT students and others rise up and dance.
