What is Dance for Kindness?

In 2012, Life Vest Inside initiated Dance For Kindness, a WorldWide event in celebration of World Kindness Day. Groups from across the globe join together to perform a Kindness FreezeMob/FlashMob to the same song, same dance, all happening on the same day.

Through Dance for Kindness, Life Vest Inside has created a powerful kindness network that fosters dialogue with people across the globe, including parts of the world torn apart by conflict. Through our approach, we establish peace in place of conflict, love in place of hatred, hope in place of fear, and kindness in place of mistrust. As a result we have seen a positive change in the way people engage with one another and respect each other.

Last year's event took place in over 120 cities, spanning across 50 countries with over 20,000 participants. This year marks our 8th Annual WorldWide Dance for Kindness and will take place on Sunday, November 8th 2020!

What's the Hype All About?

“Being a Group Leader for Dance for Kindness convinced me of the power of Kindness to change the world because it has changed me. Through the Dance for Kindness leadership program, I was given an opportunity to develop my organization, communication, and event planning skills. This program challenged me to step out of my comfort zone, to grow and to communicate with people, asking them for help and support. It has helped me be aware that I am capable of doing great things. Group Leaders are well supported with resources, tools, and advice from past and current leaders from all over the world. Applying to become a Group Leader will challenge you, help you to grow, change you and in turn change the world to become a better place.” – Stéphanie, Niainahariravaka – Antananarivo, Madagascar

“My event just took place and my heart is SO full! Our community rallied around to support and participate in the event. It was truly a group effort. This experience brought us all together for a common purpose and knowing that we were linked to 50+ other countries all doing the same, creates a global bond that we wouldn’t have experienced without this DFK opportunity.” – Andrea Johnston, Huntsville, Canada

“Being a Group Leader allowed me to witness first hand what a community is all about; how people come together to help out, how they support one another and how they lift the spirits of everyone around them.” – Lana Mahmoud, Group Leader, Amman, Jordan

“Leading a Dance for Kindness event in your community is one of the most rewarding things you can do! You are bringing people of all ages together, all in the name of kindness and humanity! There is an incredible, powerful, positive energy and excitement in the air! It has become an annual tradition for us!” – Terese Rolke, Group Leader, Red Bank, NJ USA

“Seeing the excitement in 350 kids eyes as they broke out in dance and sang the words “I can be anything I want to be” with such passion – made me realize just what had been accomplished on that day. Instilling a sense of purpose in the heart of a child is what leads to a better world for us all. My heart was filled and it was clear to see that theirs were too. One child came up to me and said, “I want to help you make the world a better place. You can count on me!” Words I will never forget! This is what I call priceless!” – Orly Wahba, Group Leader, Jerusalem, Israel

“Being a Group Leader made me feel like I was part of a family that was going through everything with me.” – Adeyemi Bernard Olubiyi, Kharkov, Ukraine

“The sense of connection is part of what makes Life Vest Inside and Dance for Kindness so special. We truly are a kindness connection web!” – Gail Churape, Washington, USA

“Being a Group Leader exposed me to a lot of things, like connecting more with who we are as human beings, to know and feel what kindness is. The event was a great tool for me to touch people’s lives positively. It really helped improve my communication skills and leadership skills.” – Obijimi Tobi

“Dance for Kindness was an amazing experience and such an emotional day. Tears of happiness streamed down my cheeks as I watched people unite as one all over the world through dance.” – Donna Cain, Group Leader, Tauranga, New Zealand
