Innovative popping, creative krump and soulful house dance collide in the world’s biggest festival of hip hop dance, hosted and curated by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Jonzi D.
Now in its 16th year, Breakin’ Convention is an annual celebration of all things hip hop, with taster sessions, workshops and free activities on offer through the entire building, giving attendees a unique glimpse into hip hop culture. Spilling off the stage and out into the theatre, the festival includes free activities, taster sessions, dance circles and workshops across the entire building.
