Run by founder and dance instructor Abby Wake, the evening will feature a six-part short film series, live performance work and a 2017 "reveal".

Admission will be $10.

"The 31st event is about celebrating women, and most specifically mothers. I thank my students and women of the Gympie community for continually inspiring me to teach and heal.. Dance is going to change the world this year," Ms Wake said.

Awake Studio has long been a project of Abby Wake's, beginning while she still resided in Los Angeles, California.

After moving to Australia, she decided it was time to launch a physical space for the studio. The studio opened in July 2016, and has seen about 150 students go through its doors since then, across 13 different classes.
