Dance communities across the world are coming together to provide aid for Ukraine, one of which is @DanceWithMeUSA. In addition to providing support to Ukrainian ballroom dancers who want to relocate their careers to the US, @DanceWithMeUSA has compiled this list of resources to help provide aid and action below:
Dear fellow dancers and friends. Our diverse dance family comprises many cultures, and while we strive to be a place for love and positivity for all, we can no longer stay silent as the situation in Ukraine has deteriorated gravely. This unwarranted attack on Ukraine has affected our staff, friends, and family who currently have loved ones suffering and directly in harm's way as a result of this tragedy. We stand for peace, for democracy, for freedom, and we stand with Ukraine and their right to defend themselves. It's our responsibility to help in any way we can, whether it's raising awareness, donating, or sharing key information. Now is the time to act and we hope you join us. Please visit the link in this image or in our bio for more information on places to donate and show your support. We will also be sharing links on our stories as well.
We know the international community of dancers is deeply saddened by these events. We've shared the dance floors in cities that are now burning. Ukrainians, Russians, Belarusians, have lived as brothers and sisters for centuries, sharing culture, history, language, and blood. This war isn't between people, but between governments. We must do our part to protest injustices and hold our leaders accountable. Your voice is needed now more than ever. This isn't just a fight for Ukraine, it's a fight for freedom, democracy, and peace. 💙💛
