An initiative of Dance Integrated Australia, MOVE IT began as a way to get more people dancing in the NSW Northern Rivers region, with classes springing up in Byron Bay, Newrybar, Clunes, Repentance Creek, Lismore and Brunswick Heads.
The classes originated from a request by a couple of members of the Marvell Hall Committee.
It started off with a small group of people coming together to do a Silent Disco exercise class, once a week with the original teacher, Tess Eckert leading the class. Then, Tess went on holiday and Philip Channells took the lead.
It became so popular there were more people attending than there were headsets available.
"It was all about having fun and not taking myself, or each other, so seriously,"
"That was the recipe for success."
- Philip Channells
His effervescent personality and dance moves will really get you going.
