“The idea of using the language of dance to help vital and meaningful organizations tell their story is thrilling.  Survival. Freedom. Every step we take is orchestrated so they can dance free for the rest of their days,” said Italo Elgueta, in welcoming the 400 guests.  “We are so very pleased to honor Dr. Stephany Powell of Journey Out and Kay Buck of CAST. We are honored to shine a spotlight on their transformational work,” added Robyn Shreiber in presenting Dr. Powell and Ms. Buck with an official recognition from Los Angeles County Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas and State Assembly member Sydney Kamlager-Dove.

“I want to thank Robyn and Italo for this incredible recognition of dance as a transformative journey to freedom. Freedom to step into one’s dreams and aspirations,” said CAST CEO Kay Buck who accepted the RIDE Champion Award from actress and anti-human trafficking activist Kate Bosworth. “And I want to thank all of you for believing in these dreams. Together, as a community of dancers –or maybe just spectators- we are giving a gift of healing that grows into a voice that is stronger than words. With us, you are empowering survivors of human trafficking to change their lives and achieve their dreams.”

“I encourage you to use your passion as an incredible force to fight slavery,” said Journey Out Executive Director Dr. Stephany Powell. “If you’re an artist, we need you. Dancers, we need you. Doctors, teachers, bankers, we need you. We need all of you regardless of your profession to fight against slavery it is not a battle we can win alone. Those who work for CAST and Journey Out are in the battle and will continue to need your help.” Dr. Powell accepted her award from Dancing with the Stars’ Cheryl Burke.

 

The event also honored Carrie Ann Inaba with the inaugural Artistic Integrity Award, presented by actress Constance MarieThe RIDE Artistic Integrity Award celebrates members of the entertainment industry for their outstanding professional accomplishments in dance and choreography, and for their heartfelt humanity that has made a difference for a multitude of worthy causes.
