Rochelle Rowe, President

Rochelle Rowe has two children and three step-children (all above the age of 9).  She loves to see all children have the opportunity to participate in their favourite sports and hobbies. She grew up in a fairly large town and had easy access to her favourite activities, like tap-dancing, theatre, basket-ball, net-ball and her back yard was a local well known BMX jumping track. She enjoyed getting to watch the big boys do their jumps and tricks everyday.

Whilst wishing she could do the same, it was not meant to be, as she smashed her front teeth out when she was only four and a half years old trying to make her own bike jump on her street. Ha-ha... It made her a little reserved when it came to big jumps and back flips on her BMX.

She moved to central Victoria when her children were young and has seen that access to certain sports/activities aren’t quite the same as in bigger cities. She firmly believes that extreme sports such as BMX racing/jumping, skate boarding and so on should be widely recognised as a sport and that it involves many great skills and needs to be accessible. She has been an active volunteer and member of XtremeInc since it was founded and happily stands in as president. She looks forward to watching XtremeInc grow with her fellow XtremeInc members and will work to initiate Xtreme sports/ activities and youth projects for all central Victorian kids.

A message from Rochelle — “Here’s to flying high and many safe landings to you all. See you at our events!”

 

Sarah Cook,  Founder & Director

Sarah has had 20 years experience in Dance & Performing Arts, starting her career as a gymnast and Classical Dancer. She studied full time Contemporary, Jazz, Classical, Character and teaching in Melbourne, completing with honours in 1999. Her teaching & professional career started in 1999 by opening Movement Zone in Melbourne specializing in Hip-Hop, Funk & Classical.

After a car accident during her time of study in which she sustained many broken bones, it seemed as if she wouldn’t be able to continue full time dance. So in 2002 Sarah thought it was time to move back to her home town of Castlemaine to open a studio & expand the Movement Zone by adding Breakdance to the timetable.
This passion for teaching was not only confined to the Dance Studio but has extended out into the community running many different programs & events for youth working with different organisations & thousands of kids in Schools all over Central Victoria. In 2005 & 2006 Sarah headed to the Kimberly’s, touring for a month at a time in remote Indigenous Communities training & choreographing for their annual Croc Festival…"An amazing & life changing experience I will never forget." Sarah Cook


Over her time at Movement Zone,  the studio grew to become the leading School in Hip-Hop throughout Central Victoria. Through her work with young people in Central Victoria she was inspired to found the organisation XtremeInc Youth Projects back in 2009. Today as XtremeInc’s Artistic Director she continue's to work with young people in developing various programs & initiatives. She also works for local government as the FReeZA Officer and Youth Activities Coordinator.


In 2012 Sarah won the prestigious Parks Victoria Regional Achiever Award for the Regional Achievement and Community Awards. There was a strong field of nominees & she was one of eight category winners announced on Saturday night 13th October at the All Seasons Bendigo.


"I will continue to work hard advocating for Young People. Sometimes it’s that one person or opportunity that can change a Young Person’s path & help create their dreams." Sarah Cook
 

David Addison.

Dave has worked as a concreter and is 39 years young! He is a man of very few words who wishes he had more time to help more people. He has been involved with Movement Zone Dance School for the past 7 years as his son has danced there since he was 6. He was excited when XtremeInc was formed and offered his assistance straight away. He enjoys helping the young generation, hoping they can lead the way in the future and so on. He is also very proud to have managed the MZ HipHop Crew over the past 2 years, taking them to Project Dance, International HipHop Comps and Groove (they’re fantastic!). He has also coached junior football for the past 7 years and volleyball for the last 2 years. He looks forward to supporting the growth of XtremeInc as the future is ours to grasp and yours to enjoy!

I am one of the youth impacted by 2TX. I know that what we have learnt in the last two years, combined with the training and experience gained in this event, will allow all of us to teach others. It will really change the youth in our area – for the better.
