Another fantastic breakdance workshop with the former street children at Les Enfants de Dieu. Once again, we worked with the full group of 126 out on the basketball court. So much fun and laughter, Pervez shouting “Left. Right. Through!” in broken Kinyarwandan (to the kids’ intense amusement). He is amazing with the children and they adore him.
(Update on young J-M: still in hospital, but doing better.)
As well as teaching the children at Les Enfants de Dieu, Pervez is also teaching a group of 15 young people at Ishyo Arts Centre. This is a group of youngsters from poor backgrounds, self-taught break dancers, selected through an open audition process. They’re so fast at picking it up. The aim is both to contribute to their own dance practice, but also to train some potential teachers who can continue our work with the children when we’re not there.
