Newcastle Improv Festival: Breakdance Workshop for 11-15s with B-Boy Doke at The Stand Comedy Club


Have fun exploring the art of Break Dancing with B-boy Doke of Bad Taste Cru. He will introduce you to the core elements of Break Dancing such as Top Rock, Floor-work, Freezes, and the creative principles of 'Learn your foundations and flip-it!' Discover how the first Bboys and Bgirls danced with breaks, and play Freestyle games to funk and hip-hop music. No experience needed. Just wear comfortable clothing and bring bottled water. Newcastle Improv festival is so excited to have B-Boy Doke with us. This is gonna be awesome!

Conor O'Kane (AKA B-Boy Doke) is performer, coach and choreographer of the multi-award-winning 'Bad Taste Cru' break dance company, and founder of Just Jam International. BTC, originally from Northern Ireland and based in Newcastle, is a pioneering Hip-hop theatre company and collective of professional break dance instructors. Their passion for education and culture, and spreading knowledge through the positive messages of hip-hop culture, has enabled BTC to work all over the world, taking their education packages as far away as the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.

Suitable for young people aged 11 to 15 years. (There's a similar workshop for 16+ after this one). For health and safety, this workshop is not suitable for people with mobility issues to take part.
