Breakdance Project Uganda


Breakdance Project Uganda is a Ugandan based project which uses breakdance (and other elements of hiphop) for positive social change. It was started up in February 2006. The project has since been giving free classes in Kampala at Sharing Youth Centre in Nsambya every Monday and Wednesday from 5pm-8.30pm. Classes are free of charge for everyone.

The project has also done workshops and classes with H.E.A.L.S. in Gulu, FDNC (Foundation for Development of Needy Communities) in Mbale, MS Uganda, DSW, Naguru Remand Home (juvenile prison), Kinship Orphanage in Gganda, street & ghetto children, different local & international schools in Kampala etc.

The aims of this project are to empower and positively inspire the youth and children through breakdance plus other elements of hiphop by:

-bridging the gap between Northern Uganda & the other regions of Uganda. -bridging the gap between the advantaged & disadvantaged. -bridging the gap between illiterates & literates. -resolving tribal, religious & racial conflicts. -building people's self-esteem. -promoting interaction between local & international dancers -creating employment for people who want to dance as a career, but can't afford to pay for dance classes.
