MOVEMENT AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
We decided to create a new partnership with The Women's Safe House in Saint Louis, which is a domestic violence shelter. We held a workshop where we taught Bhangra, a dance originating in Punjab, as part of a "Mommy and Me" class. Many of the mothers have to work to support their children and this was a great way for them to destress and have fun with their children. It was a really fun class with engaged children who enjoyed moving around and engaging in a new activity. Movement can truly bring smiles to strangers' faces.
We couldn't take photos so as to preserve the privacy of the location of The Women's Safe House and its members.
