IF YOU'RE looking to keep your children busy and active, the Police-Citizens Youth Club in Hervey Bay has programs that will keep them healthy and happy.

The PCYC offers dance classes every week day to girls and boys between ages five and 16 at 3.30pm and a performing arts class on Saturday mornings which includes music, dance and drama.

Teacher Helen Ashe, who has 25 years of experience in teaching and performing, will conduct the classes at the centre at O'Rourke St, Pialba.

PCYC Hervey Bay branch manager Sergeant Tracey Meyers said the number of students had increased dramatically this year and Ms Ashe now provided tuition to more than 120 children a week.

To get kids in school more involved in dance, PCYC will initiate The Dance Dynamix Schools Program this week to all schools within Hervey Bay where the schools have the choice of tailoring the program to suit their curriculum.

"The program, which is part of a free crime prevention initiative, is expected to run for eight weeks in Term 4 to students from ages eight to 12 years," Sgt Meyers said.

"Our team is very excited about the program. It's a way to give back to the community by providing education in these vital areas which can make a difference with the youth and in turn the wider community."
