Norwich Rising November Rehearsal

Norwich Rising November rehearsal at the Silver Rooms in Norwich. Using our Red Nose day Grant to have rehearsal space in a dry warm place is fantastic. The rehearsals are free for Women, children and men that love them. Next rehearsal is in 7th December 2015 on a Monday from 1pm to 2pm

In January the rehearsals are on the 10th and 24th on a Sunday between 3pm and 4pm.

Norwich Rising main event is on the 14th of February at the Forum for anyone to come and join in the dance. 

The Silver rooms has had a lot of changes made to it so we can dance. New floor boards, big mirrors and an amazing garden.

This will be our 4th year of Norwich Rising. We started dancing on the street in the snow.

We our a group that has had enough of violence against Women in Norwich and the rest of the world. 1 in 3 Women has had some kind of violence happen to them, either domestic or on the street. Women are over this behaviour and don’t tolerate it.  Emotional violence is just as painful as physical and we wont stand for that either.

Getting women together is one way of getting our point across.
It also makes people aware that refuges, counselling hot lines still need to stay open even in times of Austerity. 

You can come along to a rehearsal or practise at home or in school. We are doing the dance that we have done in previous years from the One Billion and Rising website.

We are also going to be doing T-shirt screen printing in January with artist Chrissy Violet Sabberton so come along with your shirt and print a Norwich Rising T-Shirt.

Miriam Gita is teaching us the moves step by step.
