Hip hop dream re­alised

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place - LUKE KIRKEBY

Holly O’sullivan La’aiva has loved hip hop danc­ing since she was a tod­dler but knows all to well how hard it can be to get lessons in Toko­roa.

See­ing the grow­ing de­mand for hip hop classes in the South Waikato O’sullivan La’aiva has de­cided to start up her own com­pany called HD Dance and will be run­ning hip hop classes on Tues­days and Thurs­days at Toko­roa’s Te Wananga o Aotearoa in Ash­worth St.

She said any­one from five up would be able to take part.

‘‘Hip hop danc­ing is a mas­sive thing now and I have been want­ing to start classes in Toko­roa for years,’’ she said.

‘‘Peo­ple are ask­ing all the time about hip hop classes, there is so much in­ter­est but there has been noth­ing around here really. The clos­est place is prob­a­bly Tau­ranga so I hope this really blows up mas­sively.’’

O’sullivan La’aiva said par­tic­i­pants will be put into classes with oth­ers of a sim­i­lar age and there is no limit to the amount of peo­ple who can take part.

‘‘Peo­ple just have to want to dance and be will­ing to give it a go.’’

The first class is free and after that it will be $95 for the first term or $85 for fam­i­lies with two or more chil­dren.
