THE Machlouch family love their hip hop.

The four siblings, Zakariya, Noah, Myah and Layla have all learnt hip hop as part of the City of Gosnells weekly hip hop youth program.

And a host of other children are getting into the program, which runs every Monday during school terms.

A professional instructor from the Dance Collective teaches the latest moves and grooves to keen dancers who must live, or attend, school within the City of Gosnells.

City of Gosnells Mayor Dave Griffiths said hip hop dance was a great way for kids to focus their energy.

“There’s an opportunity to make two groups, so the younger kids can learn the basics while the older, often more experienced students, can work on more advanced moves,” Cr Griffiths said.

The cost is $25 per term and classes are held at the Thornlie Community Centre.

The Term 4 program begins on October 19.
