Bradford Brawl Breakin Event 2024 | Recap

It has been just over a week since Bradford Brawl 2024 breakin event and what an amazing event it was! This was definitely the biggest Bradford Brawl battles we have had to date. The build up for the team, the bboys and bgirls was incredible. We had special guests arriving earlier in the week and there was excitement and energy across all the classes the closer we got to the event. Each crew had their own targets going into this year’s Bradford Brawl, so everyone was anticipating how the battles and showcases would play out.

Bboy Tobi, representing Recession Squad (Ireland), kicked off Bradford Brawl with his workshop in the morning. The turnout was like no other, with 29 Bboys and Bgirls in attendance! This is the most amount of breakers we have ever seen attend a guest workshop and this includes workshops we have visited in other countries, all over the world. Tobi did an amazing job, he really instilled key Hip Hop values into the Bboys and Bgirls, which was great to see. Bboy Tobi is our first guest from overseas for Bradford Brawl which made this even more special. West Side Breakers were the first showcase opening up the event with an explosive start. It was great to see that they have grown and progressed as a crew, since the last event. The Concrete Roses showcase followed right after and it included a lot of great transitions and tricks. Concrete Roses have some of the more experienced dancers from the new generation within their crew and this could [...]

Break Create Pollinate | Bboy Lil Tim

This was an incredible programme for Tech Styles International and the bboys, bgirls and communities we work with across Bradford. When we first set out the initial ideas and plans for this project, it was something we had never done before but we knew it would have major benefits for the local breakin scene and would have the potential to change the lives of those who were involved. Artist in Residence programmes happen often in other artforms but with breakin/hip hop this is something which is very rare. […]

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. […]
