St. Augustine Shimmy Mob, a dance performance group, is accepting registrations for its 2018 event. The local fundraiser is part of a larger international event that raises funds and awareness for women’s and children’s shelters in participating communities throughout the world. It is the largest event of its kind by geographical territory covered in one day worldwide. Shimmy Mob is a dance event with people of all ages performing a choreographed routine. No previous dance experience is necessary. Performances happen annually on a pre-established date across the globe. The 2018 event will take place on Saturday, May 12.
St. Augustine Shimmy Mob will perform at ten different locations in town to raise funds for the Betty Griffin Center. Participants have the option of performing at all or just some of the locations. 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Betty Griffin Center, which offers protection and services for victims of domestic violence. Upon registration, participants will have access to step by step video tutorials and extensive notes to learn the routine. In addition, team leader Liz Boyett will hold at least six face to face practices in the months leading up to the event. All participants will receive a Shimmy Mob t-shirt to wear during performances.
