Join Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi & Justin Langer for the dance of a lifetime to raise awareness and much needed funds for the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF).

Keep the Flame Alive kicked off the year with an extremely successful business launch event, attended by the Lord Mayor of Perth, Lisa Scaffidi and over 80 businesses from around Perth. It is now time for the rest of Perth to put on their dancing shoes and have some fun!

The Keep the Flame Alive dance day ‘Dance for a Cure” is planned for April 6 from 11am, with three separate locations around Perth!  You can join in at Forrest Place, Perth Cultural Centre or the Northbridge Piazza.

Keep the Flame Alive is the evolution of 2012’s Flame for Aline 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.

“Along with the Lord Mayor, we’re excited to announce that Justin Langer, our Patron for Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF), will also be in attendance at the dance event” said CLCRF chairman Geoff Cattach.  “We might even see Justin show off his dancing moves” he added.

The dance event will be filmed at the three locations, and broadcast live on screens. This will allow all participants to see each other during this momentous event and will also be streamed live to YouTube thanks to the Central TAFE Live Broadcasting Team.

We have been lucky to have great dance schools taking on the challenge to choreograph our 2014 Keep the Flame Alive event, creating all the moves for the general public. The entire choreography for the public dance can be found on the on our choreography page, as well as full dress rehearsal day to be held on Saturday March 23.
