Disco is back at PCYC

PUT on those dancing shoes and get ready to boogie.

After taking a break for a few years, PCYC Ipswich is bringing back its ever-popular youth discos this month, giving young people from Prep to Year 6 the chance to show off their best dance moves.

PCYC Ipswich development officer Angela Holter said there would be plenty on offer at the first neon-themed disco on Friday, September 18.

"We'll have a blow up bungy run, snow cones, glow sticks, music, a canteen as well as plenty of games and prizes," she said.

"We hope everyone comes dressed in their brightest neon outfits.

"There will also a cafe open for parents who want to stay."

Ms Holter said aside from providing local youth with a safe, fun environment, the discos also helped to raise money for a variety of youth programs offered by the PCYC.

"There is a lot of offer to help at risk youth in our community," she said.

"We have a wide range of programs like our Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme for indigenous youth, the Braking the Cycle learner driver program or Drum Beat which is about discovering relationships through music."

The first disco will be held on Friday, September 13 from 6.30pm-8.3pm at PCYC Ipswich, 1c Griffith Rd, Eastern Heights.

Entry costs $5. Phone PCYC Ipswich on 3281 2547 or email ipswich@pcyc.org.au for more.
