 A Field Trip Opportunity to see a great show! HIGH SCHOOL HIGH 2011

Last year we had the pleasure of having students from Xit'olacw Community School come all the way from Mount Currie (near Whistler) B.C. to be inspired by HSH 2010!

 After watching HSH and taking our workshop they said:

The kids were amazing!!! … (We) have decided to create a Hip Hop club for after school.  We are working on how to hip hoppize their traditional moves. You guys made a difference!!!  I have a sneaking suspicion this is just the beginning of a beautiful relationship between Xit'olacw and A Star!"
