The Breakoff On Hiatus

Unfortunately, The Breakoff is canceled today and on hiatus for the time being. We are in renegotiations with the Cliff Bungalow Arts Centre on renewing our use of the building as the public usage policy was changed. (There was damage in the washroom last semester and they are do not know which group using the building was responsible). We will keep you posted on when and where The Breakoff will be next.

In the meantime, here is a video of one of the classic kings of style to inspire you. 

Happy New Year!

The Breakoff will resume on Wednesday, January 16th at the usual place and time (Cliff Bungalow Arts Centre, 5-8pm). We hope everyone had a great holiday. Let’s rock it for 2013!

Last Breakoff and Cypher Wild of 2012

The last Breakoff of 2012 will be going down this Wednesday, December 19 and then we’ll be going on a break for the holidays. Stay tuned to find out when and where we’ll be back at it in the new year.

Also, we are partnering with Southland Leisure Centre Friday Night Breaking to bring you Cypher Wild Volume 6 on Friday, December 21. It’s Johnny Rawkit’s birthday so let’s get down like it’s the end of the world! Best of all, this one will be FREE!

Battle City Finals: Clash of the Five Points Saturday, November 10

We’re less than two weeks away from the first ever battle of the quadrants (which ended up being 5 areas) in Calgary!

It’s been an amazing experience so far seeing the idea grow into reality. Our goal is to bring the communities of the city together and we are so excited to see what each of the area all-star teams bring to the finals.

Come out and cheer on your area teams! The event is FREE and ALL AGES!

We’ve even got some special guests: Jazzlib Collective who’ll be running a freestyle MC cypher, and Eazy G, one of Western Canada’s illest beatboxers. Click the link below for more details.

If you haven’t heard already, the one and only Kid David is teaching workshops at PULSE Studios this week. Johnny Rawkit has already attended the Tuesday and Wednesday sessions and they have been unreal. Kid David knows bboying and it’s not too often that you get opportunities to learn from one of the best.

There’s two more classes left: Wednesday, 7:45 to 8:45pm and Thursday, 9:00 to 10:00pm. Register here. Workshop is only $25 which is a small amount of money compared to the amount of inspiration and knowledge you will get.

Rein and Johnny Rawkit are away for the week so Bong aka SoulB and Gomo from the Floorwookies will be dropping knowledge at the Breakoff today instead! Come learn from two of the best competitive bboys in Calgary right now!
