IJM Presents the Power of Art and Stories with Ballet 5:8

Dance can inspire us, move us and heal us – we see this in Cassie’s story, who was 12 when she was horrifically abused until IJM found her and worked with authorities to rescue her. Today, Cassie is a strong and courageous survivor, now free to do what she loves most – dance.

Hear more about Cassie’s story as International Justice Mission presents a special experience with Ballet 5:8, a phenomenal professional dance company in Chicago that engages in conversation through innovative storytelling and breathtaking dance.

Together, we can ensure more stories of freedom are told as more children are free to play, free to dance and free to dream.
