Breaking Dawson is a workshop led by youth dancer James Vainio. This workshop will provide kids ages six to ten with basic beginner steps in break-dancing. In five one-hour sessions James will teach a basic routine and encourage the participants to create their own steps ending each session with a cypher (a circle when each child will take turns going in the centre to show their skills). Breaking Dawson aims to encourage the kids in creative movement in a fun, high energy and positive environment.
