Valentine`s Day Event for the Global Village with LIVE music and special guests.

Just Dance is thrilled to invite you to celebrate a unique and powerful Valentine's Day event for the Global Village!

Join us to support the spirit of ONE BILLION RISING; a global Valentine`s Day dance event that is calling women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather to break the silence and release their stories. In 2013, one billion women and men in 207 countries shook the earth through dance to end violence against women and girls! Imagine, one billion women releasing their stories, dancing and speaking out at the places where they need justice, where they need an end to violence against women and girls.

The activist force behind One Billion Rising, Eve Ensler, is the author of The Vagina Monologue and the creator of worldwide V-Day events. She is also a fervent supporter of The City of Joy; a transformational leadership and safe community for women survivors of violence, located in Congo. Therefore, to support her vision, all proceeds from our Feb. 14 Just Dance evening will be donated to The City of Joy.

To create the proper spirit for such a celebration, Just Dance is excited to welcome two amazing and powerful talents: Jacky Essombe and Shine! 

Jackie is of course known and celebrated as an infectious, dynamic and talented dancer. She also has deep roots in Africa and has developed her own charity work in the form of the Ichoumba Village Project. Jackie will bring us together on the dance floor to activate our very own 'Just Dance village' connection as we rise and dance for change. Shine, widely recognized as a master didgeridoo player, will continue the evening with a mesmerizing set of world beat rhythms, percussion and unique vocal styling that will propel our dance to ecstatic celebration levels. Back beats will be served by resident DJ Abheeru who will fine tune a truly unique set of Global Music, including music from Shine's CD. The Shine-Abheeru duo is known to set each other on fire and bring out the very best of those two dedicated World Music artists! The evening will MC'ed by Alexandra Ricard who brought much of the creative spirit behind this event.
