After first discovering Breakin' at the age of 17, I am now 40, the founder of HelloHipHop and a father of 2 beautiful children. This hasn't stopped me dancing, infact it has motivated me even more! Whilst having done performances, teaching and competing in battles and cyphers my soul aim now is to pass it to the younger generation, hence the reason behind HelloHipHop. Without great influences and inspirational people that I have met along the way the cause that HelloHipHop stands for would not be possible. ONE LOVE TO TRUE HIP HOP x
Commercial hiphop is there to entertain others. True HipHop is there to entertain your very soul. It is there for YOU. While encouraging you to be yourself and have your own style, its main purpose is to give you freedom, respect one another, share and deliver a feeling of self expression that technology can never replace. By displaying and passing on this fundamental raw essence of HipHop, we hope to inspire the youngest generation to take up one or more of its elements, not just as a one off but for a LIFETIME.
Starting local in and around Leeds primary schools our aim is to reach out nationally and beyond, inspiring and offering authentic workshops and performances. HipHop is for each and everyone of us and is available to all ages, all backgrounds, all races and religions and 'ALL CITY'. Coupled with the Values of HipHop which are PEACE, UNITY, LOVE and HAVING FUN, We will be united in offering the children an alternative organic refreshing lifestyle that doesn't depend on Social Media 'Likes' for making us FEEL GOOD!
