XtremeInc Incorporated
Youth and Performing Arts Central Victoria

YOUNG people living in the central Victorian shires of Mount Alexander, Macedon Ranges and Greater Bendigo will greatly benefit from the formation of a new not-for-profit group focused on youth development. The recently formed ‘XtremeInc’ was established as a direct response to a need to build better communities by engaging young people in performing and visual arts.

Students, parents and teachers who are involved with the central Victorian based Movement Zone Dance School identified the need for a new youth group. According to the school’s director and newly elected XtremeInc chairperson Sarah Cook, this newly formed incorporated body is all about bridging the gap between youth and community.

“We need better systems in place to help young people grow and learn, and in my experience, the arts can offer roles in performance, organisation and mentoring – while promoting awareness about issues such as good health, fitness and positive body image. It’s all about creating the right environment.” Through event-driven youth performances, Sarah’s dance school has offered opportunities for many young people, including those who may not have been able to be involved due to the impact of social, economic, cultural and educational hardship.

XtremeInc is calling for philanthropic, government, community and business support for our youth festival: ‘2 THE XTREME 2010’.

To support XtremeInc Incorporated or to find out more about our projects for 2009 -2010 contact Sarah Cook on 0402 087 949 or xtremeinc//AT//live.com.au (replace //AT// with @).
