R4W at 1 Billion Rising

Liz and Jenny learning dance moves.
For the past two years Roles 4 Women Theatre Company have been a part of the wonderful annual event - 1 Billion Rising in St. John's - a global rally to end violence against women. It is always a great time with local music, excellent food, information booths and crafts for sale and the company of people from every walk of life who all want to see an end to violence against women.

Along with all the other good stuff, at every 1 Billion Rising event there is also much dancing! Here are a few shots of performances and dance moves from Liz and Jenny at 1 Billion Rising.

Congratulations to the organizers of the St. John's event. We are looking forward to next year.
