Breakdancing workshop at Rockford Public Library Aug. 7
From press release
Rockford Public Library and Hip Hop Congress of Rockford are hosting a B-boy workshop from noon to 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 7, at Rockford Public Library (215 N. Wyman St.), which is a free class for those interested in learning some simple breakdancing moves.
B-boying, also known as breaking and commonly referred to as breakdancing, is a style of dance that was created and developed as part of the hip-hop culture. This two-hour workshop will be taught by DJ Maclin of the Groundhogs Dance Crew (DeKalb/Rockford/Chicago), and he will be assisted by the Rockford breakdancing group The Midwest Monsters.
Maclin has 10 years of breakdancing experience, and has traveled around the Midwest teaching and performing. No prior knowledge is needed to attend this workshop, and the workshop is for all ages.
The workshop will go through stretching, basic moves, and a showcase of how some of the more difficult moves actually work. Attendance is free, and spectators are welcome. A raffle will be held for Tone Loc and Young MC Concert tickets for the Aug. 7 show in Davis Park, courtesy of the MetroCentre.
The Hip Hop Congress is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
