Event Testimonials

How the event impacted us!

lvi-hr

“From the moment I accepted the challenge to be  group leader, I knew this was going to be something completely fantastic. It’s been more than I hoped for. I got to stretch myself in ways I never thought possible and be apart of something that dances kindness into the world. I also participated in the LA Coliseum event and danced in kindness  with Sean “The Dancing Man” O’Brien. The sentiment and warmth of the entire experience is beyond words and I am looking forward to 2016″
— Shasta Bell, DFK Group Leader 2015

“This year’s event was beautiful and crazy from 5 years’ old to 80! It was great to be apart of such a wonderful event and spread kindness awareness throughout the world. Thanks to Anastasia and all of the organizations for the opportunity to dance with Sean “The Dancing Man” O’Brien”
— Andre Bell, DFK Group Leader 2015

“I’m thankful to Andre Bell for bringing me to LVI. Kindness as a tool for change excites my contrarian soul. Orly Wahba is a fierce yet gentle leader that I am proud to call friend.”
— Warren Holden, DFK Group Leader 2015

“Dance For Kindness is the highlight of my year, not only am I allowed to share this awesome event in conjunction with an even more amazing organization, Life Vest Inside, with all that I come in contact with; most importantly, I’m able to create beautiful memories with my daughter. The group leaders I love beyond measure. I had a great time working with them all. This event is going to keep growing and growing and I’m so thankful to be apart of it. I can’t wait for next year.  DFK 2016 HERE WE COME!!!!!”
– Maria “Mercedes” Jean-Louis, DFK Group Leader 2015

“It’s been a great experience getting involved into Life Vest Inside family. The great thing about this family is, there are people from all over the world and I feel as if I am in my home country even when I am outside. Last year, I was a part of Dance of Kindness event in India and this year, when I came to US, I thought there will be so much change and it will be hard for me to work on this event as I didn’t know much about the place and people whom I should approach. But after meeting Shasta, Andre, Warren and Mercedes (Group leaders of LA), all the nervousness and odd feelings about the organization of the event went away. They were extremely helpful and kindhearted people. Lastly, I finally got a chance to meet Rosie, she is such a wonderful person. The event on the whole was extremely amazing. Met lot of people with different culture and coming from different places working together for kindness. Definitely looking forward to be a part of this event in coming years too.”
