Exciting Events in NC
March is already starting out to be an exciting month for me. I’ll be doing Fight Back Productions gigs in Georgia, Ohio, Wisconsin, South Carolina, and Florida. Crazy!
But in between the out of town excursions, there are some exciting things going on right here in town that I want to share with you. I hope that if you are in NC you’ll come and join me!
First up, at 3pm on Saturday, March 13th, I’ll be presenting a free Girls Fight Back! seminar at Advanced World Martial Arts Systems in Kernersville. The program is appropriate for ages 13 and up and will last about 90 minutes with plenty of time after to answer any questions you may have. I’ll be talking about ways to avoid becoming the target of a violent crime by trusting your intuition and behaving like a bad victim and I’ll finish up with some simple fight techniques that you can use if you ever find yourself confronted by an attacker. The program is presented with tons of humor and you’ll leave feeling like a stronger, more empowered person. Pete Andrews of AWMAS has graciously agreed to let me use his studio for free and while there is no charge for the seminar itself, we will be collecting donations for Heroes Serving Humanity. For more information about the workshop check out: https://www.awmas1.com/page_latestnews.htm. And call 336-992-5223 to sign-up. Call ASAP – space is limited.
Also in the realm of violence prevention, from March 12th thru March 27th; V-Day Greensboro will be presenting staged readings of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues and A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer at Open Space Café Theatre in Greensboro, NC. These very adult oriented productions explore how our society affects the way women view their bodies and the way that violence impacts the lives of women around the globe. I’ll be performing in A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer, so come check it out and say hi to me afterwards! The Vagina Monologues performs March 11, 13, and 26 at 8pm. A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, A Prayer performs March 12, 25, and 27 at 8pm. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the door or make reservations by calling (336) 687-1319. All proceeds go to The Sherri Denese Jackson Foundation in Greensboro NC.
