In 2016 I was inspired to create CONNECT - a dance event for boys, due to the rising number of boys at my studio & the need to support them & connect them with other boys who dance. I funded 2016 CONNECT with my $5000 personal emergency fund. The event cost over $10000 & while we sold tickets we ran at a loss.
CONNECT 2016 was awesome & I knew it had to become an annual event & grow to a national event.
Due to the amazing generosity of Trish & Little Ballerinas CONNECT 2017 became a possibility & support from Dancesurance helped our 2018 event & 2019 Melbourne event & we are so grateful for their support!
My CONNECT vision;
To grow larger communities to support boys who dance.
To create an environment of support, mentoring, inspiration & fun.
To celebrate the male dance community.
To normalise boys dance.

Thank you for supporting CONNECT boys dance event.
