Get groove on in holidays
Wicked ways: Annalise Wood from Northland Hip Hop Dance leads a group of youngsters in a few moves. Her dance
tuition will be free for youngsters as part of a school holiday programme.
By DENISE PIPER
We're always on the
lookout for new talent
because there's so
much out there.
Hip hop dance is what
they live for, they
love the music.
Youngsters who love to
get their groove on and
show off their moves are
being invited to take part
in a free school holiday
Northland Hip Hop
Dance is holding five
holidays to keep kids
active and interested.
The programmes are
aimed at kids aged 11 to
13 who often get bored in
the holidays but are
legally not old enough to
be left on their own,
teacher Annalise Wood
Many kids who might
not be able to afford hol-
iday programmes or
dance tuition can come
along because the pro-
gramme is free, she says.
The kids are encour-
aged to come daily for
the whole week from
9am to 1pm. Each day
will start with hip hop
dancing and is a chance
for Annalise to spot tal-
ent for the likes of suc-
cessful dance groups
Kani Krew and Encore.
We're always on the
lookout for new talent
because there's so much
out there. Hip hop dance
is what they live for, they
love the music, every-
Over the last few
years we've seen an
increase in talent and so
many more kids wanting
to be involved.''
However the pro-
gramme offers more than
hip hop dance.
Other activities in-
clude kickboxing, roller
derby, waka ama, arts
and crafts, tumble
cheerleading and a trip
to Whangarei Aquatic
About 40 kids are
expected each week.
The programme is
funded by the Social
Northland Hip Hop
Dance also held a suc-
cessful programme last
It will be held at
School from December
20, with sessions also
being held weekly in
Further sessions will
be held in April.
