Name: Antonia DiCarlo
Age: 26
Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Nairn, Scottish Highlands
Campaign: To promote the benefits of dance

I began dancing when I was three and believe that it has many benefits.

 

As well as being fun and sociable it can build a person’s confidence and self-esteem, and can help create a real sense of belonging to a community.


It’s a misconception that you have to be a brilliant dancer to take part in dance classes.


Dance is for everyone and I’d encourage those of all abilities to give it a go!

 

To demonstrate this, I’m organising a hip hop flashmob event in Inverness, with Fixers.

We’re hoping to film on the day to put together a music video which can then be used to promote dance across the Highlands.

 

*NOTE: Fixers sometimes go beyond the 16-25yr age bracket while working on their Fix.

July 2014

My Fixers film, #HipHopHighlands, is complete and has been shared on social media! Here’s what some people had to say about it:

 

‘Those kiddies look so happy!  What great rewarding work.’

 

‘Honoured to be a part of this. This was such an awesome thing to do. Behind you all the way.’

 

‘Brilliant, love it. Great achievement, Antonia. Gold Medal.’

 

‘Boooom! This is epic, and I feel just the beginning of an amazingly bright future. A-plus!’

 

‘Awesome! Big ups Antonia and the crew!’

 

‘Inspiring Antonia. Good work!’

 

May 2014

With the help of Fixers, I organised a hip hop flashmob event on Monday 5th May to demonstrate the benefits of dance and to encourage people to give the activity a go.

 

The event, which took place on Church Street, Inverness, was filmed by Fixers to create a music video that will be used to promote dance across the Highlands.

 

The event went amazingly well. We had around 20 young people take part and the public responded in a positive way.

Here is some feedback from participants and supporters on the day:

 

‘That was a great day.’

 

‘That was an amazing day. I want to do it all over again!’

 

'Loved every minute.’

 

‘You did a great job, Antonia. Proud!’
