TWISTS, turns, leaps and, of course, a bit of hip shaking is all part of the Riverina Dance Camp in Albury this week.

About 80 students from 15 district schools are being challenged by the choreography of professional dance tutors Nick Power, Kim Peade and Tanya Mitford.

Leeton High School student Taylor Hunter-Boyd said the camp was a new experience that provided a lot of technique and the chance to try a lot of different styles and genres.

Taylor learnt how to do certain moves differently to the ways she had been taught.

“The professionals make it a bit easier to understand,” she said.

James Fallon High School dance and visual arts teacher Katrina Joss said dancing was both a creative and physical outlet, “not just great for the mind but the body as well”.

“Dancing makes kids very well-rounded,” she said.
