Stompin Dance is celebrating 25 years of performing for Tasmanian audiences.

In true Stompin style, the Launceston-based community organisation will mark its birthday by putting on another show.

Fully Grown will be performed at the John Hart Conservatory in City Park from Wednesday.

The show will feature both past and present Stompin performers and dancers aged between 10 and 36-years-old.

Stompin producer Alison Wilkes said the latest show was a celebration of looking at the past, the present and into the future.

“Stompin has evolved exponentially over its 25 years and has touched the lives of more than 7000 young people in northern Tasmania,” she said.

“It’s imperative that young people have a voice, a place they can be heard and feel completely free and where they can express themselves safely and creatively.”

The performance will be held each night until Sunday, March 26. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit stompin.net.
