Join in this high-energy workshop and learn some of the moves that have been featured in so many music videos. Locking and popping to back-spins and six step – you'll be amazed at the skills you can pick up in just a few hours!
This workshop contains "demonstration" from professional break-dancers as well as a great deal of practical hands on participation. A thorough warm up through fun activities kicks things off before a variety of break-dance moves are taught and incorporated into a full routine. A highlight of this workshop is "The Circle" when participants create a ring and take it in turns to go into the centre and "bust a move". This is the chance to impress your friends and impress yourself as you show off your new skills. With great tunes and gravity-defying moves, this workshop is an intensely fun day.
The Break-dance workshop leaders
Our break-dance tutors have been "breaking" internationally for a number of years as part of groups, crews and bands as well as providing training and tuition to a variety of organisations and youth groups. They have also competed in numerous competitions in the UK and Europe and performed in hundreds of shows across the world. They are regularly teaching their skills to young people country-wide and have worked with companies such as the BBC, CITV, MTV and many other well known companies and bands.
Being amongst the best of the best in their field, our tutors provide exciting, engaging and fun workshops for young people of all abilities, all ages and all backgrounds. They connect with their groups in a way that invites inclusion and leaves the group with new moves, new confidence and new skills.
"Thank you to Top Dog Promotions and Dan Brown for an excellent break-dance workshop that took place at my school yesterday.
