Twerk and Dance NWI

In 2017, instructor Nicole Alarid leads a twerk and hip-hop class at Universal Fitness in Crown Point. Twerk and Dance NWI is hosting a fundraiser this month for Project Outreach and Prevention on Youth Violence.

Teens and adults in the Region are invited to a one-hour workout later this month in Crown Point to raise money for a local anti-violence organization.

The hip-hop cardio fundraiser will take place at 3 p.m. Oct. 19 at Full Spectrum Fitness, 1516 N. Main St.

Proceeds will benefit Project Outreach and Prevention on Youth Violence, which was founded by two Gary doctors to, according to the nonprofit's mission statement, "prevent and alleviate youth violence while inspiring healthy lifestyles, positive behaviors and accessible career opportunities."
