When the music starts, we step to the beat and revel in the freedom we have to move our bodies. Unlike the victims of human trafficking, we move our bodies for the love of the dance, a love of our people, and a love of the freedom we feel when we move. Join the Asian community at Ohio State in a cultural dance extravaganza as dance teams express protest of modern day slavery through dance, a celebration of freedom, culture, and life. Student teams will participate in a dance-off for a cash prize and the honor of performing in the Main Event of the Price of Life Invitational. In lieu of an entrance fee, a suggested donation will be taken on behalf of our partners on the front line of fighting human trafficking. 


Vikki Rubens is on leadership staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship USA in Portland, OR.  As a justice speaker and activist, Vikki is passionate for integrating the issue of Christian faith with social justice.
