IPSWICH youth at risk of trouble on the streets have been turning their energies to the dance studio.
The Street Dreams program, run by charity Musicians Making a Difference and the Salvation Army, is hoping to help as many Ipswich youth as they can through dancing. Each term the group picks a new area. Formation of a flash mob is the present focus.
Participants can take their new skills to dance competitions or be trained as facilitators.
The free weekly hip-hop classes are open for youth between eight and 18.
Classes are run at the Salvation Army Hall on the corner of Brisbane Rd and Coal St, Bundamba, on Mondays from 3.30pm to 4.30pm for the junior class, and 4.30pm to 5.30pm for the senior class.
An Ipswich Central class is run on Tuesdays at 14 Ellenborough St Ipswich from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
