Danse contre la violence (Dance Against Violence) 10th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign in Review

Thanks to you, we have exceeded our donation goal! Given the particular circumstances, we had chosen a long fundraising campaign, from May 2020 to June 2021, and we certainly don't regret our choice. Your ongoing support has allowed us to maintain, improve and even diversify our services, notably with online workshops and virtual care videos. Even though the pandemic reduced the number of participations compared to past years, the workshops were an undeniable source of warmth, vitality and comfort for the women and children who attended.
A thank you cocktail party is planned for our contributors in May or June 2022.

I support Dance Against Violence and CAP !

Danse contre la violence (Dance Against Violence) is a major cause, unique in Quebec, dedicated to the well-being of women and their children who have been victims of various types of violence. Through movement workshops, Montréal Danse helps them reclaim their bodies and regain their self-esteem while encouraging family cohesion.

Women are at the core of our activities: Victims of conjugal, intrafamilial and sexual violence, women in a situation of homelessness or isolation, women suffering from mental health problems or drug addiction, and criminalized women. Our activities may or may not include children, depending on the situation.
