Breakin For Love | Summer Unlocked

By |2021-10-06T13:46:19+00:00October 6th, 2021|Events|

Tech Styles International has seen one of the most exciting summers to date, working on multiple projects with partners Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Bradford 2025 and The Leap to deliver some amazing projects. The highlight of our summer has been, without a doubt the Summer Unlocked programme. We delivered multiple shows and workshops across outdoor spaces bringing joy and inspiration to so many families. For this project we needed a name that reflected our intentions, something which would immediately speak to people and this is why we named our project ‘Breakin For Love’.  Being able to get back in contact with children, young people and adults, face to face has been truly liberating for us as an organisation and for the people we have come into contact with through our work.

This is an update to let you all know what we at Tech Styles have been doing since the lockdown has begun.

Tech Styles Breakin New Ground | Community Projects

  Thanks to the support from Bradford VCS Fund & Tranquil Productions, we have had an incredible run of breakin (breakdance) sessions at the Parkside Sports Centre in West Bowling. The funding we received enabled us to educate young people about health and fitness through breakin. We tried to provide as much knowledge as possible to help improve the lives of the young people that attended. This included the benefits of drinking water over sugar-based drinks and the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables. We hope to see some strong bboys and bgirls coming out of West Bowling in the years to come. […]
