Celebrating International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day!

Today is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate women all over the world. Gender inequality isn’t going to magically disappear, but it allows us an opportunity to question the standards and stereotypes, giving a voice to those who need it most and empower one another along the way.

Together, we are strong. Together we can do more. 

Every year, there is a new theme to break down the barriers when it comes to talking about female equality and this years theme is #BreakTheBias

Imagine a gender equal world.

A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.

A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

A world where difference is valued and celebrated.

Together we can forge women’s equality.

Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.

To mark this special day, we have put together a video celebrating women in dance and would like to invite you to take part in our Inclusive Dance Day on the 3rd of April.
