Following the success of Heart to Heart Hip Hop in 2005, which raised over $6000 for the people of Nam Khem village in Thailand (after it was devastated by the 2004 tsnumai), Heart to Heart is recommencing hip hop dance courses in Alstonville and for the first time Ballina.

The Ballina course starts next Tuesday, March 21. The Alstonville course kicks off next Thursday, March 23.

The course runs for four weeks and costs $25. Students are split into three groups junior, intermediate and senior and everyone, including boys and beginners, is welcome.

Dance director Sue Whiteman has been working on the ground in Nam Khem since the big wave. This tragedy inspired her to set up the Heart to Heart Charity Foundation and together with hip hop teacher Cassie Warman she runs Heart to Heart Hip Hop to help the people of Nam Khem.

For more info or to register for a course phone Sue on 6686 2520.
