Hip hop class breaks into scholarship
Robert Matyus is a Romanian boy who received the Song Room ‘Shonah Scholarship’ for dance and leadership ability and potential. Robert’s family has fled war and borne the scars of what they have been through during this process.
Since being awarded the scholarship, Robert has received shoes, dance lessons and a break-dancing mat to practice on. Robert has been a mentor at Holiday Programs and appeared in the Leader newspaper and The City magazine. Robert has loved the opportunities and confidence that the scholarship has given him and maintains a cheeky sense of humour “it’s easy to pick up girls when you’re a dancer”.
Shonah was a Song RoomTeaching Artist who sadly died from breast cancer at the age of 33 and The Song Room has placed a scholarship in her memory.
