Breakin Convention arrives in Edinburgh on 5th and 6th May. In co-ordination with Jam Piece Episode 1 both Tentacle Tribe and Just Dance will be holding workshops at The Studio at the Festival Theatre.

Tentacle Tribe are first up with a workshop for all levels on Thursday 4th May:

Elon & Emmanuelle founders of Tentacle Tribe have, through years of experience as professional dancers (Tentacle Tribe, Cirque du Soleil, Rubberbandance, B-boyIZM, Cirque Eloize) developed a unique approach to dance by fusing diverse movement philosophies from a wide variety of techniques.

In this workshop, we will draw concepts from different street styles such as Popping and Breaking from a contemporary viewpoint to expand our vocabulary with an eye to an increased level of body awareness & movement consciousness. Through geometrical shapes we will explore the capacity for the human body to inhabit multiple planes of space.

And then on Friday, Just Dance will teach an intermediate Breaking workshop with Bboy Ducky.

Learn the basic elements of breaking foundations including toprock and footwork. Ducky is one of Korea's best ever bboys. His style incorporates UK jazz, house and tap dance. This workshop will show you how he has taken these influences without losing his essence as a bboy.
