Teens ready for disco

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

COS­TUMES are com­ing out of the cup­board as teens pre­pare for the Whit­sun­day PCYC’s big­gest su­per­hero dance party of the year at the Unit­ing Church Hall in Proser­pine this Fri­day night.

The fun will be­gin at 6.30pm, with DJ Justin Night Gray hit­ting the decks with all the lat­est hits un­der the disco lights.

Par­ty­go­ers can show some of their dance moves in the dance-off com­pe­ti­tion or test their knowl­edge in the trivia quiz with ma­jor prizes to be won.

Whit­sun­day PCYC staff will also be on the look-out for the best dressed su­per­hero or vil­lain to win a prize spon­sored by the Proser­pine Phar­macy.

Projects and pro­grams co-or­di­na­tor Grainne Newell said it was im­por­tant for the lo­cal com­mu­nity to sup­port events for teenagers in the Whit­sun­days.

“Events like the Proser­pine Dance Party are im­por­tant to help with youth de­vel­op­ment and crime preven­tion be­cause if they are at our disco they are off the streets,” she said.

“This is the sec­ond event we have held and we re­ally need num­bers for this one to en­sure it be­comes a per­ma­nent fix­ture.”

There will be a $1 sausage siz­zle spon­sored by IGA su­per­mar­ket with cold drinks and can­teen snacks also avail­able for pur­chase.

The free event was or­gan­ised by the Whit­sun­day Youth Com­mit­tee’s Y Fac­tor group and is aimed at 12-17 year-olds.

Ms Newell said it wasn’t com­pul­sory to dress-up and wel­comed all to at­tend.
