L2R Next Gen (L2R) is a grassroots not-for-profit organisation that provides opportunities for young people to participate in free weekly hip hop dance workshops in Melbourne’s West including young people from culturally and linguistically diverse, newly arrived and at-risk communities. 


Established in 2009, L2R has provided countless opportunities for newly arrived and disadvantaged young people to participate in free dance workshops held in Melbourne’s West. In January 2015 L2R was recognised by the Ministry of Arts Australia and was added to the Register of Cultural Organisations (RoCO) and endorsed as a charity with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status. L2R’s purpose is to advance Arts and Culture, contributing to the nation’s vibrant cultural life.

Our Mission
