Hey everyone, it’s been a wet and wild July with heavy heat and lots of rain! I’ve had an exciting month performing with Simple Cypher at Hat Fair & the Kensington & Chelsea Festival. As well as a workshop tour in Scotland with my mentee Maddie (Mad-K), which was lots of fun! (Big ups to my Scottish dancers!)
If you missed it then The Duke LDN dropped his podcast featuring UK legend Sunni Brummit, really interesting to hear his thoughts on Breakin’ in the UK, the Olympics and more. This was episode #39 so if you enjoy it, make sure to go back and check some of the others out. I heard episode #1 was the best 😉
Aug 14th & 15th – Break Mission x B-side 2021
The midlands biggest UK events moves from Birmingham to Coventry. Battles in Breakin’, Hip Hop, Popping & Waacking. Check it out.
Aug 17th – 22nd – Summer Dance Forever
One of the biggest Hip Hop Dance Festivals in the world. I’m extra excited for this year’s SDF as it includes TWO UK judges on it’s panel. My bestfriend and fellow Swindon Dance alumni, Frankie J in the House and man like Bagsy in the Waacking. The battle element gave this event it’s reputation but the theatre night, parties, workshops and overall vibe are not to be forgotten.
