HISTORY of LET'S DANCE
As many will know, Let's Dance has historically been titled "Divas' Dance for DOVE." Born out of a birthday party/fundraiser thrown by one of DOVE's previous board members, Divas Dance was originally intended for women only.
However, as a social justice organization, DOVE has long been committed to growing in the direction of equity and inclusion. Over the last 15 years, DOVE has come to champion the necessity of gender inclusivity in service of domestic violence victims and survivors, and that championship must spread beyond our direct service. Following the final Divas Dance in 2020, DOVE renamed the event "Let's Dance: Rise Above, Dance for DOVE", welcoming folx of all genders and expressions to celebrate and support DOVE's lifesaving services.
