UC Crew win the National “Epic Award” Creativity Section 2010

Congratulations to UC Crew from St Helens, winners of the Creativity Award for their Smoking project. This break dancing and DJ group wanted to educate their 7-14 year old members on the dangers of smoking so that they could have more stamina for dancing and stop wasting time in rehearsals with ‘fag breaks’ They worked with the NHS SUPPORT Stop Smoking Service for a number of sessions, and came together with other groups for a National No Smoking Day dance competition.

UC Crew was formed by a group of young breakdancers who wanted to develop their own moves and avoid paying prohibitive fees to a dance school. They created interest amongst other young people, hired a room in a local hall and with support from the St Helens CVS became a community group.
