Relax the Chimp


Tasdance, University of Tasmania and Junction Present

Relax the Chimp is an outdoor dance event that invites everyone to dance, experiment, play and get physical whilst watching their own larger-than-life avatar dancing on the big screen. Created by Tasdance and launched via a partnership with University of Tasmania, Relax the Chimp features the University of Tasmania’s community, Launceston’s dance groups and YOU!!

Come and let your inner dancer free in an environment where there is no right or wrong, nor any limits on age, ability or style. The music will be based on open requests from the community made in the weeks leading up to the event and will represent the feeling and culture of the community we are based in and the dance styles this community enjoys.

To nominate your own tracks jump on Twitter at #relaxthechimplaunceston before August 31.

Let us know your ‘trigger song’ and then come along to play and groove in the open air at the festival hub.
