Hip-Hop dance teacher in Vanuatu

Trainer and choreographer Josh Mitikulena has been working with Wan Smolbag, a grassroots NGO based in Port Vila since 2017.

He has been teaching dance in the community, which has been a great experience for all of the people involved.

Taking part in activities like sport and dance has a huge role to play in growing resilient communities.

It not only contributes to health and well-being but in societies where women and girls can be often marginalized, joining a group is empowering, helping to build confidence and community.

Josh’s current assignment focuses on continuing to upskill experienced dancers to become trainers and to look for ways to use performances to provide an income for the dancers.
