Video: Sudbury dances for kindness

CMHA celebrates World Kindness Day

Members of Sudbury's Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) were joined by Spotlight Dance Company to bring some warmth to the hearts of onlookers on a cold Sunday morning. 

Dancers in bright orange toques and tutus showed us how kindness can unite the world one beat at a time on Nov. 12. 

Wendy Blake, owner of Spotlight Dance Company says its important we open our hearts, minds and ears and treat everyone with kindness. 

“It's important that community come together to support events like these,” said Jamie Blake, co-owner, Spotlight Dance Company.

Krista MacDonald, CMHA's Health Promotion Coordinator has been involved with the Dance For Kindness Freeze/Flash mob since its conception four years ago. She says kindness has strong links to individual health. 

“In doing an act of kindness or vouching for kindness we are boosting our wellness," said MacDonald. 

CMHA's goal is to promote good health and wellness and increase understanding about mental illness. 

World kindness day is celebrated on Nov. 13.
