Wagga Wagga hip-hop dancer, Jordan Blake (18), received $500 from the Young Artist Support Program originally established by former councillor, Kevin Poynter. He intends to use these funds to support his travel to Singapore to participate in the Summer Jam Dance Camp – the biggest urban dance convention in the Asia Pacific.

Jordan said, “Dancing is everything to me and this opportunity is too huge to pass up.”

He expressed that he hopes to make a career from his dancing and inspire other young Indigenous artists to pursue their dreams.

Eastern Riverina Arts was delighted to contribute to Jordan’s endeavour and encourages anyone in the community who would like to make a donation to this funding program to please get in touch with ERA.
