FREE workshop for ages 12+
Freestyle dance artist ANDROIDX will lead an introduction to street dance K.R.U.M.P, a highly expressive, exaggerated and energetic dance style originating from youths in south central Los Angeles.
They saw the dance style as a way for them to escape gang life and release anger, aggression and frustration positively, in a non-violent way. There are four primary moves in K.R.U.M.P; jabs, arm swings, chest pops and stomps. K.R.U.M.P is rarely choreographed, it is almost entirely freestyle (improvised) and danced to upbeat and fast paced music in battles or sessions rather than on stage.
This workshop is connected to the performances of ‘KID_X' by
Bassline Circus and MHz in association with Feral, taking place on Fri 31st
May and Sat 1st June as part of Take Me Somewhere Festival at
