Arts Council England award The Demon Barbers & Breaking Tradition dance company funding for a new children’s Folk & Hip Hop Dance extravaganza!
Inspired by The Nutcracker and following the success of the UK’s first Folk & Hip Hop dance extravaganza, The Lock In, the Breaking Tradition dance company comes together again for a magical fusion of music, dance and comedy suitable for all the family. With music provided by the BBC award winning Demon Barbers along with clogging rag dolls, sword dancing soldiers and Jack in the Boxes bursting with break beats, The Sleepover is guaranteed to have children bouncing on the edge of their seats while catapulting them into a magical world where all dances are equal.
The company will be researching & developing ideas for the new show in early April with a showing of a 20-minute pilot at Yorkshire Dance, Leeds on Friday 15th April at 1pm. The showing will be open to arts organisations & practitioners, venues and family audiences.
Following the performance of the pilot there will be a 30 min feedback session followed by practical workshops for children in clog, rapper sword, morris and Hip Hop dance.
Those wishing to attend should contact Yorkshire Dance on 0113 243 8765. Places are limited so please book early.
