Breaking Workshop at the District Primary School, Newton-le-Willows

UC Crew have completed our final Breaking workshop with the District Primary School, Newton-le-Willows being our last stop on our school workshop tour funded by the Community Foundation For Merseyside’s ‘Merseyside Investment Fund’.

UC Crew was able to deliver funded Break Dance and Parkour workshops in schools across St Helens, to give children and young people a chance to try a new activity, meet positive male role models and steer away from anti-social behaviour and gang culture.

Participants of school workshops where able to attend fortnightly classes and Breaking youth club on a Monday evening in Haydock for £1.00. This was to reduce the financial barrier of learning and give them a chance to take up Breaking as a hobby.

UC Crew win at Wigan Premier Street Dance Championship

UC Crew was victorious winning several trophies at the prestigious ‘Wigan Premier Street Dance Championship’.

It was an extra special day for our crews as it was the first time that they have entered a street dance competition and danced in front of such a large audience. A street dance competition is unlike a break dancing battle which is a competitive dance battle 1 vs 1, the format consisted of all dancers performing moves for three minutes whilst judges picked the best of the group.

Our dancers embraced this new format of competition, it was tiring break dancing for so long but we was victorious and proud of their achievements.

They will be competing again at ‘Calling You Out Street Dance Championships’ in Knowsley, Merseyside.
