Shimmy Mob is an annual world wide flash mob event.
The Melbourne chapter of the Shimmy Mob team is in it’s 3rd year of joining in with over 170 other cities around the world in performing and fundraising money for domestic violence services.
Every year we raise much needed funds for shelters and domestic violence services that look after the Melbourne region and Victoria.
How can you help?
There are 3 ways you can contribute to this amazing activity.
- As a dancer!
We are accepting registrations for dancers via the Shimmy Mob website until 31 Mar 2021.
For your registration fee, you will receive the detailed video and notes for the choreography/steps to learn for 2 pieces – a main song and finale for May, plus 5 additional choreographies; plus your official Shimmy Mob tshirt to be worn at the performance; and a portion of your fees will be donated to our domestic violence charity organisation.
We practise together, and then perform together on May 8th!
And if that’s not enough, there’s a second performance option in September as well!
- As a volunteer!
You can never have too many friends to help you at a pop up dance event like this!
You can register to be a volunteer, get the tshirt, access to all the dances and the donation happens, but on the day, you are there to help the dancers have space, the crowd to know what to do, or maybe you’re even just hanging out with us… who knows! But it’d be fun.
- As a financial contributor
If dancing isn’t your thing, and you’re not sure you want to volunteer to help out, then you can always just donate towards our charity organisation to help us meet our fundraising goals.
You will have the bonus of the warm glow that comes from helping the thousands of Victorians who need to access these services every year.
