Dancing with the Local Stars which was held at the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center on July 8th, 2023 was a big success. This exciting new event featured several local celebrity dancers, including our own fearless leader and CEO, Dr. Linda Parker. The event matched each celebrity with a professional dancer and each dance team competed in front of our celebrity judges. It also featured an exciting after-party where gold ticket holder guests had the chance to meet and greet the celebrities! Thank you all who came out to support our event.

Martha Graham once said of dance “All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the movement important, vital and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.” This is the basis for our Dancing with the Local Stars. Women in Distress is taking this moment and utilizing dance to bring entertainment to our community and to raise urgent awareness and funds for our movement: To end domestic violence, and we hope you join us with this movement.
