HYPE stands for Helping Youth Prepare for Eternity. Stepping classes start Sept. 17 for children 9 to 17 at the Midtown Cultural and Educational Center in Daytona Beach. The classes will be conducted by Marvin Eans, 33, from Indianapolis, Ind., who relocated to Daytona Beach recently after completing his bachelor’s degree from Ball State University. Eans has more than 12 years in stepping experience and says he has always had a heart for sharing his gifts with others. He created HYPE as an outlet for young people to express their gifts and talents in a positive light. For more information on HYPE, contact Katherine Moore at 386-671-5542.
