Welcome to Tassie Dancers Against Cancer

Tassie Dancers Against Cancer was born after losing my mum to cancer, as well as a beautiful young dancer and a staff member, with all this loss and pain, raising money for Cancer just seemed like the right thing to do.

Like many who have been touched by Cancer I was endeavouring to put those feeling of helplessness into something positive. There is the hope that fundraising efforts may make a difference to cancer patients and helps families going through this awful time in their lives.

Over the years Tassie Dancers Against Cancer has grown to encompass our annual ‘A Chance to Dance’ day and Showcase Gala evening event.  These events are well supported by the Tasmanian dance community and bring together a wide range of dance styles and abilities giving everyone the opportunity to perform on stage and in front of an audience in a supportive and welcoming environment.

In 2020, we celebrated our biggest year yet despite the changed program for a global pandemic.

With the support of the Tasmanian Dance community we raised an astonishing $34,000 for Tasmanian Cancer Council.

2020 Funds Raised – $34,000

2019 Celebrations with Samuel Johnson from Love Your Sister, $30,000 raised towards vanquishing cancer!
