Move it mob style



Move it mob style is a 20 episode x 30 minute dance-based youth, health and fitness program for television broadcast and online produced by Vibe Australia with support from the Australian Government through the Department of Health. The program promotes young Indigenous Australian culture through dance and music in a positive high energy format blending music and dance to encourage happy healthy lifestyles.

The program is filmed in locations across Australia and showcases the dance moves unique to Indigenous communities. Each episode consists of a dance workout with three routines. Young people from each community visited are involved in the choreography of the different dance styles used in the routines. Exercises and dance moves are repeated in each of the three tracks, to give the audience a chance to learn the dance combinations. Scattered between these dance routines, and linked by studio hosts, are pre-recorded short health and cultural stories.

From one episode to the next, different moves are collected from the featured communities and taught to the audience, creating a Move it mob style movement vocabulary.

As of June 2014, activities associated with Deadly Vibe have ceased however, the online resources for Move it mob style are still available online.
