The Crisis Center for South Suburbia (CCSS) is thrilled to announce their newest and most exciting event, the Dance 4 Awareness – Light up the Night powered by Exelon. The Dance 4 Awareness will feature six hours of dance music played out by Chicago’s DJ John Herrera with contests, raffles, food and more in a club-like setting. The event will be held on Saturday, October 29th, from 4:00 to 10:00PM at the Conference Center on the campus of Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills.

Every hour, a new dance theme will be presented by locally known, professional choreographers and dance instructors who will give a brief performance followed by instruction of popular dance moves in the genre. Dance themes include Old School, Slides, Top 40 and Hip Hop. Each theme will run for an hour of open dance and the best dancer overall will be awarded. Individuals and teams of all levels and abilities are invited to dance in this energetic club-like event in order to raise awareness and funds to help end domestic abuse.

Spectator Registration is $25.00 per person. Pre-Registration includes a D4A T-Shirt, access to the Event Spectator Area, food and non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase.  Spectators can also purchase time on the dance floor for an additional $10 per theme hour.

Dancers and Team supporters who raise $175 or more in donations per dancer will receive an all-access pass to Event Dance Floor for all 6 hours, two each of food and drink tickets, a D4A T-Shirt and goody bag, and a personalized donation page through FirstGiving with CCSS support. 100% of net proceeds will go towards services and education programs offered by CCSS.  Donations are tax deductible.

The Dance 4 Awareness will Light up the Night in honor of victims and survivors that have endured the darkness of abuse in their lives and highlight the importance of coming together as a community shed light on the topic of domestic violence and the resources available through the Crisis Center.  For more than 37 years the Crisis Center for South Suburbia has provided emergency shelter, counseling, court and medical advocacy and prevention services at no cost to victims and survivors throughout our communities. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and CCSS is looking for support in not only taking a stand against DV issues, but taking steps to prevent it and assist those that are living through it now.
