WCSU flash mob to celebrate International Women’s Day
DANBURY, CONN. — Western Connecticut State University will host a flash mob dance in honor of International Women’s Day on Friday. This effort is in conjunction with One Billion Rising, a mass global action to end violence against women and girls by joining people together in dance to raise awareness. The anthem is titled “Break the Chain” and the dance has been choreographed by Debbie Allen.
Two rehearsals will be held for those participating in the dance: from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, 2013, in Rooms 212/214 at the Westside Campus Center, 43 Lake Ave. Extension in Danbury, and from 7 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, in the Bill Williams Gymnasium in Berkshire Hall on the Midtown campus, 181 White St. in Danbury.
Participants will gather at noon on Friday, March 8, 2013, at the Alumni & Friends Circle on the Midtown campus. A presentation will be made by the Women’s Center of Greater Danbury and the dancing will commence. Participants are asked to wear a red top and black pants to the event.
