ABOUT US

STOMP is a joint project of a bunch of Canberra dance enthusiasts and the Rotary Club of Canberra Burley Griffin.

Inaugural STOMP

The disastrous Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004 was the trigger for our decision to run the first stomp as a couple of us pondered what we could do in the face of such an enormous human tragedy.
We raised $4000 in our first effort and helped to get a Sri Lankan fishing village back to work with new fishing boats

Evolution

Following the initial event, we ran STOMP every 3 months and raising between two and three thousand each night.  For the last three years STOMP has become an annual event with the last STOMP raising in excess of ten thousand dollars. The money is dedicated to needy charities identified by the Rotary Club.

In 2017, STOMP has partnered with the Rotary Club of Canberra Burley Griffin and Bachata Spring to bring a new event 'Latin Winter Wonderland.' This new brand will continue STOMP's mission to raise funds for local charities.

 

So who are the people behind STOMP

 

 The STOMP Coordinator

Mark McEwen

STOMP seemed like a sensible way of turning all that dance energy into much needed money for charity.
