Breakin' Convention represents the origins and evolution of hip hop culture from around the world and around the corner
Breakin' Convention is the award-winning and critically acclaimed organisation that represents the origins and evolution of hip hop culture from around the world and around the corner. Working with the most respected, innovative and inspirational artists, Breakin' Convention seeks to position hip hop dance alongside more historically established art forms, through our world-renowned international festivals, professional development, youth projects and educational programme.

A dancer, spoken word artist and director, he is the foremost advocate for hip hop who has changed the profile and influenced the development of the UK British hip hop dance and theatre scene over the last two decades.
Breakin' Convention is a Sadler's Wells Project.
We are a continually evolving organisation and since the birth of our festival in 2004 we have grown to encompass a range of events and services.
Our core values include profiling the world’s elite hip hop performers, nurturing UK-based talent, exploring the possibilities of hip hop dance theatre, educating on the foundations of hip hop dance and engaging with children and young people.
