From February to March and May to June 2009 we ran two 6 week hip hop dance workshops. Workshops were held weekly on Wednesday afternoons and facilitated by Hideboo and Nate from Dance Central studios who were skilled in Hip Hop, Break, R’n’B and Popping and Locking. If you would like MYRC to run more workshops please contact Young Women’s Worker Dana and let her know!
MYRC created a compilation CD of music made by young people in the MYRC Music Studio. The CD titled ‘Mville On My Mind’ features 13 tracks and is available for free The CD was launched at a gig at MYRC on the 2nd of April 2009.

Throughout 2007 & the beginning of 2008 three 6 week girls only workshops were run in partnership with Rosemount Youth & Family Services. These workshops were aimed at promoting positive body image and self esteem. Young women participated in numerous activities like hula hooping, healthy eating, bag stenciling and home made skincare.
