Lindsey advocates about domestic violence through her social impact “Love Shouldn’t Hurt.” This program teaches children how to recognize, develop, and maintain a quality relationship with their peers, which can be taken with them in their everyday lives. She also created Dance-For-A-Cause workshops. This has allowed children to escape into their own world of expression, while benefiting Children’s Miracle Network and Domestic Violence Shelters. The gift of dance is not only a talent, but a blessing that I love to share with others.
