About The Event

The Noosa community will come together to dance and drum in a call to stop violence against women. The "Break the Chain" dance routine is easy to learn, even for those with no previous dance experience, and participants can choose to attend one or more of the 5 rehearsals scheduled. There will be a new performance location this year - the Lion's Park Gympie Terrace, Noosaville, an idyllic riverside location where there is plenty of space to dance, available parking and options for post event celebrations with a picnic in the Park, a drink at the adjacent Yacht Club or dinner at one of the nearby restaurants/cafes. This is an all ages event - we have had particpants aged 8 to 88 years dance with us. We hope to grow the number of participants and spectators this year and raise more needy funds to assist local women and their families who have expereinced domestic violence. 2013 saw approximately 150 community members dancing, and 2014 saw over 200 women and men dancing and drumming. In 2014 we raised nearly $1100 to donate to our local Salvation Army Women's Shelters.
