All is set for the 2023 Lagos Women Dance on Saturday where many women from all walks of life are expected to participate.
The dance, which is organised by Jela Projects Limited in conjunction with Seed Rehabilitation Foundation, is in its fourth edition.
According to a statement signed by the Founder, Jela Projects Limited, Mrs Angela Tony-Iji, on Friday in Lagos, the dance has the potential to promote tourism in Lagos State and Nigeria as a whole.
The statement also said that the dancing helped in reducing stress and women should be encouraged to imbibe the culture of dance.
“We are also calling on the government, corporate organisations, and well meaning Nigerians to partner and sponsor women events, tailored toward women’s health and fitness physically, emotionally and financially.
“Women are overlaboured with all forms of chores, and are stressed, having little or no time to de-stress, socialise, do medical checkups, mingle, and have fun.
“As a result, a lot of people are depressed, most especially at this season of harsh economic crunch; women need to be encouraged.
“There will be financial talk; health tips, and grants accessibility talk; dance, food and drink, and feed your soul with scaling-up message that call for the growth of women,” it stated.
The statement noted that the dance, which would hold at National Stadium, Surulere, would grace women from Canada, Kenya, Ghana and Rwanda among other countries.
It also stated that no fewer than 5,000 women were expected to participate in the 2023 edition.
“Government officials will also participate to grace the occasion, “ it said.
