Join us on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023, from 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM for a stress relief movement dance class with a purpose! Dancing with a Purpose is a Lupus Awareness Dance Workshop and Fundraiser, led by choreographer, instructor, and Lupus Warrior Justine Parker. Let go of stress and move to the beat while raising awareness and funds for the Lupus Foundation.

 

This event, presented by JusRédor and the Lupus Foundation, is a movement workshop hosted at Unity Dance & Movement Studio in Bethesda, MD.

JusRédor Collection Bamboo Athleisure Wear will be available for purchase at the event. Shop while moving for clothing that's better for your skin and better for the environment. JusRédor bamboo fabric contains antibacterial properties, allowing individuals who experience allergic reactions to other materials to alleviate the discomfort of sensitive skin (whether dealing with itchiness, dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, or sudden onset of hives).

 

After the dance class, we will close out with a panel discussion featuring Lupus advocates and health coaches to share information and answer questions. All ages are welcome to join us in support of a greater cause. 5% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Lupus Foundation to help raise awareness and find a cure for lupus.

 

What type of dance style? Meditation, yoga, breathwork, stretching and contemporary movement!

About Lupus

Lupus is a chronic disease that can cause inflammation and pain in any part of your body. It’s an autoimmune disease, meaning that your immune system attacks healthy tissue. Lupus is one of the cruelest, most mysterious diseases on earth that ravages different parts of the body. It is difficult to diagnose hard to live with, and a challenge to treat.

 

  • An estimated 1.5 million Americans have lupus.
  • Lupus can strike anyone at any time, but 90% of the people living with lupus are women.
  • Women of color are at especially high risk.
  • Despite the widespread prevalence of lupus, research on the disease has remained underfunded, relative to its scope and devastation.

About the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA)

The Lupus Foundation of America is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through programs of research, education, support, and advocacy.

 

The Lupus Foundation of America is patient centric by working to reduce the time to diagnosis, ensure people with lupus have an arsenal of safe and effective treatments, expand direct services, and increase access to treatments and care.
