Shimmies for the Cure is dedicated to raising awareness about breast cancer and to fighting it the best way we know how… through dance!
All proceeds are donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. To date, Shimmies for the Cure has raised approximately $4,500 to support breast cancer research… not too bad considering we’re just getting started!
If you’d like to get updates about the event as we announce new performers, you can connect with us by “Liking” us on Facebook. You can view photos of last year’s performance by DreamStar Studios on the Facebook photo album.
Also, we would love to make Shimmies for the Cure a national organization that contributes to help kick breast cancer. If you are interested in organizing your own “Shimmies for the Cure” event in your city we would love to support you and provide you with a website, design / promo items, and more to make your event a success. Just email us!
