The Dancing Man party in Los Angeles was a super fun event and I was really excited to represent Big Curvy Love and meet Sean as well as some amazing people you might recognize.
Here’s the dancing man recap: Sean from London was body-shamed for dancing at a concert but thanks to Cassandra and her global #FindDancingMan Twitter search, his story went viral and he is now getting an epic dance party in Los Angeles that we’re invited to!
Here’s the tweet that started it all:
Anyone know this man or who posted this? There’s a huge group of ladies in LA who would like to do something special pic.twitter.com/DGbu3AXOrB

Sean responded with this pic on twitter and whole #DancingMan movement was found. Dance Free Movement is the organization putting on the party and has raised $40K that will be donated to anti-bullying charities in the US and UK. Lucky for me the party was in Hollywood so I was able to walk to the event.
I was super excited to bump into Jes Baker aka the Militant Baker and founder of the Body Love Conference. Jes recently gave a really insightful interview for Big Curvy Love’s Woman Crush Wednesday feature.
Matt Joseph Diaz was at the party and made me feel like a short stack.
Then it was time to switch out the red stilettos for my comfy black flats and have a dance.
