Realising Potential

Project 2012-09-14 22:19:32 +1200



Training hundreds of hours, attending competitions all over the North Island – our youth do just that, and sacrifice lots of free time to practice and give 200% on stage for their audience, their families, their coach, their team and themselves.

There are so many issues today that youth in general can not control ; separation of families, bullying, child abuse, and poverty.  With an alarming increase in youth suicide, we are committed to supporting and nurturing our dynamic and eccentric group.

Performing is not about winning - and although Hysteria have won and come second in a number of competitions, you can never put a price on the confidence and pride our youth experience.



Dance is a form where you can GROW, DEVELOP, CREATE, and EXPRESS.

Why do we need your help?

Urban Dance Hysteria have qualified as part of Team NZ at the FISAF International World Fitness and Hip Hop competition in Holland, EUROPE this October 2012.

The enormity of this event for our youth – is like going to the Olympics.  The opportunity to attend such a prestigious International event and to represent our country, is the ultimate honor.

Realising potential in our youth is not just about dance. It is about nurturing and fostering talents, creating more role models for our youth within our society, and supporting life time experiences that will produce extraordinary leaders for our future.

This project is about hope. About making an opportunity a reality.

We are fundraising the old fashion way to get seven of our youth aged 9, 10, 11 and 13 to the competition, and are doing as much as we can with raffles, lotto raffles, battens ups, school discos, sausage sizzles, performances, food stalls and lots lots more...


But time is against us...

We need at least $30,000 to cover flights, accommodation, meals, team NZ uniforms, competition fees, performing uniforms and a visit to Disneyland in Paris (as a reward for our kids - this is only a 3 hour train ride from our competition) before the 9th of October to make bookings.

Please help us...

Please help give our kids this opportunity that will change their lives forever.
