"Be Your Own Superhero" Dance Party

It’s time to celebrate and the NCADV wants to acknowledge you and your Superhero abilities. You are the real-life Superheroes in this everyday world. Your extraordinary actions are why you make a difference when you put your Voices in Action

We encourage you to dress up in costume of someone who’s had an influence as a Superhero to you.  This could be anyone in fiction to non-fiction: from Black Panther to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, or maybe Captain Marvel or a Civil Rights/Social Justice Leader. The Superhero realm has no boundaries for your imagination! 

Also, don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes because after the awards ceremony we will open the dance floor with a DC DJ to help you show off your amazing powers of motion. We look forward to this special night in honoring each of you and your heroism of making this world a better place for those who need Superheroes like you!
