In May, Wave helped to fund Pavilion Dance South West’s project to create Bournemouth’s first ever Hip Hop Super Crew. Young people from a range of different backgrounds and ages (10-25) united to form the group, including from disadvantaged communities.
Vicki Ibokwe, the Creative Director of Uchenna Dance, choreographed the 6 minute piece of hip hop dance theatre along with the young people, which was entitled “You, Me and Us”; an abstract look at life’s encounters with one another.
The Super Crew went on to open Breakin’ Convention, the UK’s biggest international touring festival of hip hop theatre, on Saturday 7th June at the Pavilion Theatre. The Artistic Director of the Convention, Jonzi D, was extremely impressed with the group, especially considering the young age of some of those involved.
“I really didn’t know what to expect, but it was incredible! Thank you so much for giving my son this amazing opportunity.” Parent
