Hosted by Naomi Wenitong (The Last Kinection) and Shannon Williams (MC Brothablack), Move It Mob Style is a new 20 x 30 minute youth dance-based health and fitness program which teaches viewers mad dance routines and showcases the latest Indigenous hip hop beats, while also delivering strong health messages and segments dedicated to healthy living.
Each episode is shot in a different location around Australia, including Redfern (NSW), Murray Bridge (SA), Berry Springs (NT), Rockhampton (QLD), Bendigo (VIC), with trained dancers – Albert David, Ghenoa Gela, Sani Townson and Medika Thorpe teaching the dance routines.
Three dance routines are taught during each episode with the dance moves fun and engaging. The dancers work with a local dance crew in each location to guide you through the various routines. Each routine is repeated four times to give you a chance to learn the deadly dance combinations.
Scattered between the dance routines are short health and cultural stories which explore cultural pursuits of various Indigenous communities.
Move It Mob Style also profiles 16 different Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music performers and all the music featured in the series is created by Indigenous artists such as Street Warriors, Briggs, Maupower, Stunn a Set and more.
