Break it Down

Break it Down

A junior Urban Street Dance session for boys and girls aged 7-11 years old.

Styles include: Break dancing, popping, locking and old school hip-hop.

First session is on the 14th September at Northwich Memorial Court, Chester Way and is then on every wednesday from 4-5 pm at the cost of £4 per session.

The session is to be delivered by Alex Worsley one of our DOPE Performance Group Boys...... We interviewed him so you know a bit about him before the sessions start.

What does dance mean to you? 
To me, dance is something I can use to to escape the stresses of college and somewhere I can be around friends. Its also my way of making friends, as I can be fairly shy sometimes but showing that I can dance and dancing with others brings people close and breaks the ice.


How old where you when you started dancing? 
I started dancing when I was 11, so I've been dancing now for 7 years.

Who inspires you/ who’s your role model?
My dance teacher Jack is one of my biggest inspirations, he has taught me most of what I know and is a really good role model. Other inspirations of mine are crews such as Finger Circus, IaMmE and Street Kingdom.


What do you enjoy about teaching? 
What I enjoy about teaching is the joy you can bring to people showing the fun and opportunities that dance can bring, and seeing the friendships that can be made through dance, even with people of different cultures or languages.


What does it mean for you to be in an all-male dance group? 

Being in an all-male dance group is really good for my confidence as I am not learning the more feminine styles of dance which I would be doing in a majority female dance group. This then allowed me to be less embarrassed about dancing when i did join a mixed group because my confidence in dance had already grown.


What do you think makes a good dance teacher? 
I think a good dance teacher needs to be someone you can have a good time with , have a laugh, but when it gets close to a competition or a show they will be serious and push you, helping you progress as a dancer.


What advice would you give to someone who is trying dance for the first time?
My advice for anyone trying dance for the first time would be to not give up on it. A lot of people come to a class with people who have been dancing for a while and just give up because they're not as good as they are, but you need to keep working at it and eventually things will click and you'll find a style you love and are good at, then that confidence will help with all other styles. Also don't listen to what others say, if you love dance stick with it, prove them wrong and progress as a dancer.
