Free breakdancing workshops with Hip Hop Pop

Entertainment / Tue 14th Sep 2021 at 09:07am

THANKS to a Jack Petchey Foundation grant, there will be breaking workshops for FREE held at Hip Hop Pop dance school in Harlow.

Breaking (more commonly known as break dancing), is one of the elements of hip hop culture and is now also known as a sport in its own right, as the 2024 Olympics will see BBoys and BGirls compete for medals. So what better time than now to bush up on your knowledge and skills?

Who is teaching the workshops?

A good friend of Hip Hop Pop’s Director, Jenny, talented breaker and fellow top 5% street dance teacher Thom Jones from Southampton will be travelling to Harlow to share his knowledge and skills with you.

Thom is a Street styles teacher, with a love for all things Breaking!
Teaching the next generation of BBoys and BGirls the foundations, variations and habits needed to smash their expectations and amaze themselves is what gets him out of bed. In his classes, he aims to strip away the fear people feel when they begin dancing on the floor, leaving the students feeling safe, empowered and jam-packed with knowledge. He can’t wait to share a studio with you!

What will you learn at the workshops?

Lot’s of the foundation of breaking, including top rocks, go-downs, floor work and footwork all broken down into achievable portions with assistance from Thom.

  • A little history of breaking.
  • How to connect the skills you learn.
  • Technique knowledge to take away to allow you to continue to practice/learn even after the workshop is done.
  • All the above whilst in the safety of a small group, building your confidence working with others.
