BREAKIN' CREW

Breakin’ Crew is a mixed performance company for all ages aimed at dancers with experience in the art of breakin’.

Those who really identify as being a Bboy or Bgirl or are committed to becoming one.

We choreograph as a group for shows and performances. Much of our work is focused on technique, developing individual style, cypher and battle etiquette.

A typical session involves drills, cyphers, battles, freestyle, working on sets and rehearsals for performances. 

This session will be led by Kel FX.

They are currently working on a piece for Norwich Castle, the Dance Showcase at Epic Studios and Turnstyle at Norwich Playhouse.
