Breakin’ Convention is back once again

Running nationally for seventeen years, and appearing for the third time in the town Breakin’ Convention returns to Blackpool this weekend. If you’re not sure but you are a bit “hippidy hoppidy” and even better have children, you’ll need to windmill your way down to the Grand Theatre where some of the worlds best street and or hip-hop inspired dancers will be performing including Soweto Skeleton Movers, Tentacle Tribe and Just Dance.

Not just that but the creme de la creme of local street and dance crews will be taking to the stage, with Freefly Crew, Generation Movement, Urban Dance Project (UDP) and FY Wingz all throwing down some moves to remind us what it means to “get down” on the Fylde Coast.

The national tour is led by Jonzi D founder and Artistic Director of Jonzi D Projects and Breakin’ Convention. A dancer, spoken word artist and director, he’s dedicated to promoting what hip hop culture can mean to people and how it can be used in a positive way to develop new streams of culture and dance.

If you missed the free lead in event for Breakin’ Convention last weekend at Matchams Court, you missed a treat! Workshops for street dance, DJ’s, street art, graffiti, break dancing from some awesome dance crews were all on offer. I was in attendance with all of my nephews and niece, taking up this perfect opportunity to improve their musical education.

For more information or to book tickets for Breakin’ Convention visit the Grand Theatre website. They are super reasonably priced and this show is highly recommended as fast moving, entertaining and last but not least “funky”.

While you’re waiting, take a look at the images I captured last weekend with the help of my nephew.
