To celebrate World Bellydance Day on May 14th, the Shimmy Mob (see photograph) performed a worldwide choreography to raise awareness of abuse of women and children. Funds raised are donated to an organisation working in the area. The ladies photographed decided Parkerville Children and Youth Care was the perfect not for profit to receive their donation.
Ann Southall said “We danced and fundraised at 7th Avenue Bar and Bistro in Midland, Centrepoint Shopping Centre in Midland, Mundaring Weir Hotel and the Parkerville Tavern- it was great fun for a great cause!”.
The WA Middle Eastern Dance Festival was hosted by Midland Dance Studios last weekend and culminated in the Grand Bazaar held in Morley on Monday. Ladies from Northam, Manjimup and Albany joined the four Perth based dancers to perform the same choreography to close the bazaar. Bazaar attendees were very generous with more donations for Parkerville Children and Youth Care.
We thank the ladies for their hard work in fundraising for Parkerville Children and Youth Care. Not only will funds be used toward the services we provide for children and young people effected by child abuse, but the awareness raising of child abuse that the dancers advocated is crucial within the community.
Well done ladies!
