Stompin Presents
PRIMARY STOMPIN 2015
Stompin creates an environment in which young people grow, as individuals and citizens, through their connection with dance. Working with young people in Launceston, Tasmania, we develop artists, audiences and community through creating, curating and presenting unforgettable performance experiences. Unique to Australia, Stompin's performance culture unites non-professional dancers with professional artists to create and present signature works in ordinary and extraordinary places.

Stompin is excited to announce PRIMARY STOMPIN. A new initiative for Stompin, we will design and deliver a show for upper primary school students, inviting students from Northern Tasmanian primary schools, local and regional to join us at our Studio to make a work about issues important to them. We see Primary Stompin as a way to introduce the values and aesthetics of Stompin to 10 to 12 year olds: a simple, fun process with a social conscience and a celebratory outcome. This project will not contribute to students' assessments.

FREE INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOPS:
The process will start with a free interactive workshop program in Northern Primary Schools. This gives students a chance to explore what Stompin is all about. The workshop will see students participating in creative activities and physical explorations. The environment we create is an open platform for students' to explore their ideas and creativity with our guidance. Students from Grade 4 to Grade 6 have the opportunity to participate in this free introduction workshop series from now until June 26. Please contact Stompin to book on 63343802 or emmap@stompin.net

No prior dance or performance experience is needed. Stompin is a fully inclusive space that enables young people to explore their creativity regardless of skill level.

"What a way to develop our kids. Poise, confidence, creativity, rhythm and working in a team".

"Stompin, more than any other group tells real and honest
stories of Tasmanian youth"
