Burdekin dance enthusiasts have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn hip hop from one of the best entertainers to come out of Australian talent shows in recent years.
Burdekin Shire Youth Council (BSYC) has secured founder and former member of male dance group “Justice Crew” E-Man (Emmanuel Rodriguez) who, along with dance artists Maikolo Fekitai and Wyllis Maihi, will host a number of dance workshops at the Burdekin Memorial Hall on Saturday, April 30, 2016.
Council’s Community Development Manager Tony Vaccaro said the workshops were just one half of a new youth event being organised by Burdekin Shire Youth Council.
“There will be four workshops held on the day – children eight years and under, beginner, intermediate and advanced dancers,” Mr Vaccaro said.
“You don’t have to be part of a local dance school to participate in the workshops, they’re open to everyone.
“However, spaces are limited so make sure you register as soon as possible.”
Mr Vaccaro said E-Man and his crew would also host a fully supervised Under 18 dance party following the workshops.
“There is a $5 cover charge for anyone attending the dance party who did not participate in the earlier workshops,” he said.
“All Burdekin youth are invited to join the fun!”
Registration forms for the dance workshops are available from Council’s Customer Service Centre as well as the Burdekin Library branches and should be returned to the Burdekin Library Ayr by Friday, April 15, 2016 along with the $10 fee to participate. This fee includes entry to the Under 18 Alcohol and Drug Free Dance Party that night at the Burdekin Memorial Hall from 7.30pm-10.30pm.
