It’s time for the Sixth Annual Move the World Ball, Saturday, February 23, 6-10 p.m. at the Topanga Community Center.

Get ready to dance, make new friends, be inspired, and entertained, while supporting our community youth program, Move the World (MTW), an organization that provides opportunities for social and environmental awareness through dance.

MTW began six years ago when 25-year Topanga resident and choreographer, Cecilie Stuart, took a course called, Awakening the Dreamer, sponsored by the Pachamama Alliance.

“I realized that our world is suffering a crisis of overpopulation, resource extraction, devastating climate change, and the degradation of our natural resources,” Stuart says. “We will lose 50 percent of our global species within the next 10 years. Something must be done to combat this shift towards extinction.”

Using her skills as a teacher, dancer, and choreographer, Stuart began MTW as a medium to engage youth in positive change and global impact. Since then, MTW has performed throughout Los Angeles and most recently, took eight dancers to Toronto, Canada, to perform for 5,000 world leaders at the Parliament of World Religions Conference on sustainability.

MTW has huge plans for 2019 and needs your help. What better way to support a local non-profit that spreads the message of hope through dance, than to dance?

Enjoy a fantastic performance by MTW dancers at 7 p.m. and stay for the DJ dance party afterwards. Enjoy a parents’ lounge and concessions sponsored by Love Bug Pizza. Sign up to enter a $100 raffle, and an opportunity to win tickets to the LA Clippers, LA Kings, the Wallis Performing Arts Center, Topanga Horseriding at La Esperanza, one-month unlimited yoga at Warrior Yoga in Woodland Hills, and a season pass to Theatricum Botanicum.

We hope you join us and the Move the World team, this Saturday, February 23, for the MTW ‘80s Ball at the Topanga Community Center and support art and world change. Party entry is $20. Ball is 6–10 p.m. Show at 7 p.m. Wear ‘80s  chic!
