LAS VEGAS - On Tuesday, March 29, Las Vegas’ male hip-hop strip show Aussie Hunks visited Opportunity Village’s Engelstad campus and conducted a hip-hop dance class for OVIPs. The Aussie Hunks concluded the class by presenting the organization a generous donation.
Opportunity Village OVIPs in the Fine and Performing Arts Program were taught new dance moves and choreography, and then performed what they learned for the Aussie Hunks. The Fine and Performing Arts Program at Opportunity Village teaches individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities music, dance, theatre and visual art, and is designed to increase awareness of the arts, support creative expression, and provide technique and training. This program promotes self-expression, social interaction and the development of peer relationships, while providing participants the opportunity to perform on stage at Opportunity Village and community events throughout the year.
