There’s a misconception that there’s nothing for kids to do in this town.
The reality is that there’s a huge list of activities be they sport, theatre, art, music, or community based. The problem is that the activities the kids want are based around sex, drugs, or adrenalin, things the populace is less than keen on providing for them.
- “Created by local arts organisation Kulture Break, Man Up is a series of workshops and camps that teaches young males how to dance and perform,” Mr Stanhope said. “Through dance, the program aims to empower young men to build their self-confidence, connect with their peers and overcome anti-social or self-destructive behaviours.
The team of dance artists involved in the Man-Up program includes former Canberran and finalist in this year’s So You Think You Can Dance television program Timomatic and JD, a top-20 finalist in the same show last season.
With stars of “So You Think You Can Dance” attending there will be some disappointed young women aged 12-17 upset that it’s limited to the young men.
