Join us on Sunday 8 November at 11am as we Dance for A Cure!
Hundreds of families from across Perth will come together in Forrest Place in the City of Perth to perform a choreographed dance to help raise awareness for the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF).
This year’s event will be opened by the recently appointed CLCRF ambassador the Right Honourable Lord Mayor Lisa M. Scaffidi and attended by long-term CLCRF Patron Justin Langer, who will be available to sign t-shirts for the general public. The event will raise much-needed funds for the CLCRF to continue their valued research into childhood cancer.
Lauchlan Bain, an independent Perth choreographer, has taken on the challenge of choreographing the 2015 event, creating all of the dance moves for the general public. This year we are lucky enough to be dancing to Geronimo by Australian band, Sheppard, who are very supportive of this event and have licenced the song to CLCRF for this special occasion.
There will also be two rehearsal days to be held on Sunday 18 October and Sunday 25 October; you must attend at least one of these rehearsal days to be eligible to dance on 8 November. The location is still to be advised. It is also at these rehearsals that you will also be able to collect your brand new Dance for a Cure t-shirt ready for the big day. So time to register and start learning your moves!
Keep the Flame Alive is the fundraising brand of CLCRF which was sparked by the 2012 Flame for Aline initiative that saw 700 people dancing in a flash mob in Forrest Place. Its primary focus is to raise awareness of the need for childhood cancer research. This amazing event not only supports future research into childhood cancer but encourages fitness, with all ages and experience levels getting outdoors and having fun, while being active – especially with the high energy routine of Geronimo.
The Perth dance community has continued to provide massive support, and along with our wonderful team of volunteers and staff, this year’s Dance for a Cure stands to be the biggest and best. This year, the Dance for a Cure event will also be proudly supported by Channel 9 Perth. This is an event not to miss and we hope to see you there!
