The DJ’s will be playing the very best in Hip Hop, R&B, Funk, Breaks, Funky House and Bashment to suit the needs of everyone, but this will be no ordinary night, action packed full of dance battles and shows featuring the top eight Breakdance crews in the UK (inc. Soul Mavericks from the UK B-Boy Championships) compete against each other to help raise money for a good cause.
It doesn’t stop there; we have a live PA from Frantic Frank (The Kraftsmen) the hottest new up and coming UK MC, a very special popping performance from ‘Poppin John’ straight from America winner of the world hip hop championships in Las Vegas 2008. There will also be a live graffiti wall with very talented artists, clothing and DVD stalls and not forgetting the all female Flowzaic show which will encompass B-Girling and Locking.
There will also be a performance from Tuca E Mel very talented drummers from Brazil! We are also expecting some very special international guest dancers! The afterparty (also at Tutu’s) will be hosted by DJ Shortie (Shortie Entertainment) bringing you the best of urban music.
Proceeds from this event will go towards Guy's and St Thomas' Charity awards grants to facilitate improvements to health services and a wide range of projects including small schemes which improve the patient's environment to major initiatives which involve the purchase of cutting-edge equipment to diagnose or treat illness. Grants for research are also awarded to King’s College London, which is the university where the regular London Bridge Training sessions are held on the weekends.
