Breaking event at the Southsea Fitness Festival

Funk Format and Sweat Southsea are bringing the Breaking Battle of Southsea to Castle Field on the 1st of June!

The event will be a stepping stone in gaining widespread attention for this dance, commonly known as breakdancing. The future generation of dancers will be the focal point of this Jam, since Breaking has often been overlooked in the media and within educational institutions in favour of sports and small selections of dance styles like ballet. Thus, many children are missing out on the physical and mental wellbeing, social connections and cognitive skills that stem from Breaking and the Hip-Hop culture. Funk Format will show at this event that there are many more activities that children can develop passions for, and not just the ones many are accustomed to.
