‘Nia Australia’ is holding their annual fund raising National Playshop in Yamba on Sunday August 25 and encourages people of all ages and fitness levels to come together and dance for better health.

Nia is an expressive movement practice for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being.

Yamba Nia teacher Carol Greenwood said that Nia Australia is a not-for-profit association, volunteer run organisation that survives on membership of teachers and community members.

“We pride ourselves on holding regular events to raise money for important causes such as the recent ‘Dance4Dignity’ – (which raises awareness of issues which are faced by women and girls experiencing homelessness and domestic violence etc),” Carol said.

“Everybody is welcome at the National Playshop in Yamba.

“No prior experience is necessary.

“If you love music and love to dance, this is the event for you,” she said.

The Nia Australia National Playshop day will be held at the Raymond Laurie Sports Centre, Yamba, on Sunday August 25 from 9am – 12pm.
