About

Join Di and Taups for a four-day B-Boy & G-Girl intensive workshops!
Over four days we will be hosting 4 x 3-hour intensives.
We will work on strengthening our basic foundation moves and host mini battles to work on confidence and dance strategy when battling.

Sessions:
WED, 22 JAN AT 3 PM - 6 PM
THU, 23 JAN AT 3 PM -6 PM
FRI, 24 JAN AT 3 PM - 6 PM
SAT, 25 JAN AT 3 PM - 6 PM

Come and discover the positive vibe that hip hop culture celebrates. Experienced B-boys and B-girls offer to mentor to less experienced dancers, building a safe and productive learning environment, where participants can learn foundation techniques, power moves, flow and musicality.
Register online or at the reception at Te Oro.

Popping, Boogaloo & Bgirling

Diana practices the style of ‘Popping’, ‘Boogaloo’ & ‘Breaking’ and also runs jams and events for the community.

She has travelled throughout New Zealand and internationally learning, teaching, competing, judging and performing in various studios, community centers, events, dance battles, tours and church mission work. She is a member of the NZ Funkstyles crew “Boogiehood Connection”, breaking crew “Instance Movement” and female HipHop crew ‘3K Calibre’.

Her heart is to use her gift of dance to bring excellence, unity and positivity to others, especially youth. She aims to help teach alongside with Taups the foundations of dance so that students will be able to eventually freestyle and explore this dance outside of the studio setting.
