Boys are being urged to step out and learn the fun of creating the moves which can make fantastic dancers. Youthful local trio X Movers gave a performance at Kennedy School which showed how the lads, as well as girls, can give spectacular dance displays. The troupe, Mark Ramirez, 18, Antonio Serrano, 16, and Alan Ortiz, 18, were spotted by teacher Rosslyn Carthy of the English Schools Foundation at last year's Hong Kong Youth Arts Festival. Ms Carthy was impressed with how the footloose teenagers showed that dance need not be performed in a rigid set style and - most importantly - could also be enjoyed by boys. So X-Movers were invited to Kennedy School to wow with three separate sessions featuring nine 'street-style' dances choreographed by the trio themselves. 'Their standard of dance performance is so high it inspires,' Ms Carthy said. 'Today's modern performing arts climate deliberately moves to encourage boys into dance and to recognise it as a viable medium for boys. 'We want to get boys involved in dance. Let them see that anyone, anywhere can dance and feel good.' Pupils at the morning dance show roared for another encore after being thrilled by moves the teenagers performed to the funky sounds of Backstreet Boy's Get Down. The foot-tapping performance has inspired the whole of Year Six, girls and boys alike, to take part in this year's Youth Arts Festival. 'All of them want to do it. They are keen to do it. Today's performance gives them ideas about what's possible,' Ms Carthy said. After their energetic performance, the boys told Sunday Young Post they hoped dance would inspire youths to keep away from the evils of drugs and no-hope lifestyles. The X Movers have been together for almost five years and first met at a Repulse Bay Beach dance event. Since then, they have met regularly to rehearse and choreograph new routines. The trio would eventually like to become professionals.
