The Sista Strut Awareness Rally kicks off at 8am, at our new location Soldiers' Memorial, 13th and Chestnut, with expert speakers, dancing, a special tribute and more! We strut at 10am! But right before we strut, at the end of the rally, we will distribute free pink latex gloves for our highly anticipated Pink Glove Unity Dance. The Pink Glove Unity Dance is where all strutters join together in a dance of celebration for survivors, remembrance for those that lost the battle to breast cancer and a unified expression of hope for a cure. The Pink Glove Unity Dance is choreographed by St. Louis’ own MaTiff Dance Company. Watch the tutorial to learn the dance:
