Wagga's young women have been taught how to feel empowered through movement in a school holiday workshop.
Shyamla Eswaran and Jes Subba from the Bindi Bosses conducted two workshops at the Civic Theatre as part of the FRESH 2021 program.
"It's all about self-empowerment and we use cultural dance styles from around the world to help people bring out their inner confidence," Ms Eswaran said.
"It's been so beautiful to see that happen with the girls here."
Ms Eswaran said the Bindi Bosses is a contemporary South Asian Fusion Arts company that makes sure to respect and honour the dance styles they pay homage to.

"Those stories are important, it's not just a dance move. A lot of these moves have a history that is important to acknowledge."
Wagga Multicultural Council CEO, Belinda Crain, said it was fantastic for young women from refugee and migrant backgrounds to have access to this program.
"Thanks to Wagga City Council for putting it on," she said.
"We have 15 girls from refugee and migrant backgrounds and they are having a fun day while learning they are in charge of themselves."
