Sadler's Wells, a world-leading creative organisation dedicated to dance in all its forms, presents a weekend of exciting choreography, live music, and dance workshops for all ages & abilities for its first NT River Stage takeover. Breakin’ Convention will get the party started on Friday night with hip hop and freestyle, while over the weekend we present Step Change Studios with ballroom dance by disabled and non-disabled dancers, and the chance to have a go at flamenco, Lindy hop and ceilidh in our family friendly workshops.
Breakin’ Convention: Freestyle Funk Forum, Open Workshops and DJ Set
19.00 – 22.45
Freestyle Funk Forum is improvised theatre in hip hop’s answer to 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' No two shows are ever the same in this spontaneous collection of skits brought to life through the elements of hip hop from dance and beatboxing to turntablism and rap. Don't just come and watch - stick around and learn the moves you saw on stage with impromptu dance workshops led by the performers and followed by a DJ set where you can try out your new moves. Smash the fourth wall with Breakin' Convention.
