Stars come out for Vibe Alive 2008!

Celebrity guest role models for Vibe Alive 2008 have been announced, with singers, dancers, athletes and actors coming together to ensure that students across Australia have the time of their lives at Vibe Alive.

Vibe Alive is a two day festival for young Australians that incorporates music, sport, art, education and healthy living in a high-energy, youth-friendly setting.

This youth festival with a difference offers students the chance to sing, dance, play, create and learn in
an environment that allows them to express themselves, share their talents and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

In between all of this, students will learn about healthy living, explore career options and boost literacy skills. The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations’ Indigenous Education Ambassadors will encourage students to complete their education to enable them to follow their dreams. There is a complete round robin competition, with great prizes to be won.

Role models who’ll be joining in the fun include former Australian Idol Casey Donovan, stars of So You Think You Can Dance? Sermsah “Suri” Bin Saad and Courtney Walter, NRL footballer Joe Williams, AFI award-winning actor Luke Carroll, former Harlem Globetrotter Dwayne Cross and star of the acclaimed SBS series East West 101, Aaron Fa’aoso.

These inspiring celebrities will be hanging out with the students, offering advice and encouragement and helping out with the judging. There may also be a special performance or two!

Also announced are the 2008 Vibe Alive patrons – Indigenous music legend Warren H. Williams and leading entertainment producer Kerrie Hayes.
