Dancers to be seen all over the world
Dancers to be seen all over the world

Youth dance project YouTube Me Dance is coming to the Kimberley again this month.

The community dance project designed to engage young people in hip-hop dance first visited the region last year.

This month, dance moves will be busted at Broome, Derby and the Dampier Peninsula.

Workshops kick off with local facilitators on May 28 at Derby, followed by workshops with So You Think You Can Dance choreographers Jason Bird and Katie Cesaro.

YouTube Me Dance Project Broome co-ordinator Sandi Woo said every school at Broome and Derby was involved.

Drawing on the success of last year’s event, 2012 will be an exciting and inclusive dance project for the region, Ms Woo said.

About 100 participants performed in front of 250 people at last year’s performance at Broome.

“One of the aims of YouTube Me Dance is to inspire youth to be physical and express themselves through hip-hop dance,” Ms Woo said.

“This project certainly has the potential to achieve that.” Youth dance artists will perform at Derby Youth Centre on June 29.

The performance will be held on August 3 at Broome Youth Support Group Drop-In Centre.

Performances won’t be limited to the Kimberley region as every dance routine will be uploaded to the YouTube Me Dance Kimberley video channel, for the world to see.

YTMD Kimberley is proudly sponsored by Healthway to promote the Be Active message.
