Breakdance casting

As part of our hip hop dance project in Rwanda, UK breakdance pioneer and teacher Pervez is leading some masterclasses with emerging breakdancers in Rwanda, in partnership with Ishyo Arts Centre, Kigali.

The casting for the masterclasses took place yesterday at Ishyo, conducted by Wesley Ruzibiza, contemporary dancer, Ruben Baerte, breaker, Twizeyimana Saleh, breaker, and Carole Karemera, director of Ishyo Arts Centre.

Pervez is one of the original B Boys in the UK. Inspired by films like Flashdance, Crazy Legs (Rock Steady Crew) and music videos like Buffalo Gals, Pervez started B Boying in 1982. Today, 30 years on, he is still an acclaimed international performer as well as a sought after teacher.
