School & Prison Performances

School & Prison Performances

Schools, colleges and prisons across the Hutt Valley will be hosting performances from breakdancers, strongmen and cultural acts when members of Impact World Tour perform there this week.

GX International, a group of hip-hop artists, as well as skateboarders and BMX riders, will excite and entertain young people with their high-energy acts, featuring some of the world's top talent in breakdancing.

Team Xtreme International strongmen – always a crowd pleaser – will delight audiences with their larger-than-life personalities and muscle power as they rip phonebooks in half and bend steel bars between their teeth .

Island Breeze will captivate young people with their beautiful dances and costumes, as they take them on a cultural journey through New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.

Performers in all the groups will also share personal stories and promote a positive life message with warnings against alcohol, drugs and gang-life.
