Students at Tambellup Primary School are gearing up for a special performance to showcase their newly learnt hip hop music and dance skills.
Throughout Term 4, Hip Hop artist Scott Griffiths and urban dance professional Pepito have been working for Community Arts Network (CAN) delivering workshops focussing on lyric writing, beat-making and break dancing.
“The program developed a positive and healthy message with the students as well as introducing a range of different art skills. The strength of the program was in the level of participation and increased confidence within the young people,” said CAN’s Acting CEO June Moorhouse.
Workshop facilitator Scott Griffiths is one of the founding members of popular Perth Hip Hop act Downsyde and he is also the creator of WA’s first Hip Hop course at Central Institute of Technology.
Carlos “Pepito” Estigarribia is a 3 times Australian Bboy champion and he represented Australia at the UK Bboy championship world finals in 2007.
Pepito has competed, performed and taught dance in the Unites States, Switzerland, Japan, New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Greece, United Kingdom, Singapore, and now Tambellup!
The students will perform at Tambellup Primary School assembly on Friday 4th December at 2:00-2:30pm.
