This is a night for dancers to gather who love House & Hip Hop, under one roof, to Jam!
A Cypher is a Circle where dancers express their creativity and love for the music. The Dj plays their favourite tunes and people interpret however they wish within the Cypher – Freedom is the key! (New York has set the global bench mark for this scene which we want to emulate in Sydney)
Adam will be teaching from 7-8:15 pm [pls pay by donation]. Beginners are encouraged to learn and to gain confidence in the cypher.
Adam is a freestyle dancer that has trained in several styles of street dance forms including popping, locking and house. He continues to perform and teach and is inspired by both Sydney street dancers and contemporary dance artists as well. He is still a club dancer at heart and enjoys getting down with friends and his street dance fam at parties and Jams. He is looking forward to sharing some movement with you as part of the Freedom Sessions!
