Eliminating Bullying by Inspiring a Culture of Kindness!
At Rancing Revolution we make an intentional link between physical activity and community activism. Through Rancing (a combination of running and dancing) we encourage individuals to freely step outside the social norm (Rance to your own Beat!) and simultaneously ask each other to examine our reactions to difference. We want to ask the question, "Why Bully?" Why do we often choose to react with judgment or negativity when we could choose instead to smile, encourage and support each other?
Bullying is a pervasive behavior that exists at all levels of our society, at all ages, not just in middle school hallways. We see it in the media, in politics, at the office, in families and even among friends. We live in a culture that often supports and perpetuates violence and bullying behavior. But there is a solution! We can work together to eliminate bullying behavior through actively inspiring cultures of kindness. Through our educational curriculum, through efforts of active social support and through community activism, we can break the cycle at all points and create social change. At Rancing Revolution we acknowledge that true kindness takes courage. We want to engage all individuals, at all ages, to be positive role models and become beacons of kindness!
