I Stand

I Stand for dancing with hard-won skill and joyful abandon, at any size.

I Stand for my Sisters and Brothers who have declared this Public Statement.

I Stand against sexism from anyone toward anyone, for any reason.

I Stand against body shaming, large or small, old or young, strong or weak, any gender, any class or status.

I Stand for personal choices and human dignity.

I Stand against bullying, abuse, and violence.

I Stand with you, my fellow dancers, to create safe spaces of respect and encouragement.

I STAND: For dancing with hard-won skill and joyful abandon, at any size
