WITH the vault unlocked, some new dance talent is being unleashed.
The Vault is one of the DMB Dance and Performing Arts Centre’s studios in Albury’s Young Street which was turned into a community dance space on Saturday for the Border’s youth.
Hip-hop teachers Kim Blanza, Jayden Williams and DJ Centennial Tuvale, of Wagga, showed off their moves and kept a sharp eye on those on the dance floor.
DMB owner and director Darlene Williams said the studio was now “a urban, hip-hop culture scene”.
“It’s about creating a place for connection, self expression and somewhere for young people to support each other,” she said.
Two of the studio’s emblazoned walls are the work of Border graffiti artists Kade Fielder and James Scott.
Now Mrs Williams wants businesses to back the project with the money to run it and pay for equipment and food.
Businesses can also get involved by offering prizes or providing money to support scholarships.
“There’s no end to where this community program could lead,” Mrs Williams said.
“Some kids don’t have the opportunity to go to dance classes, so this gives them the opportunity to participate in a good environment.
“There’s a lot of talent out there and we are hoping to discover it.”
The Vault will be open on Saturday afternoons.
The date for the next session has not yet been determined.
