Wales Millenium Centre

Coleg Criw Cymru took place at WMC offering a week long residential summer course for a group of young people to tighten up their hip hop skills.

In August Kwesi worked with a group of young people who had been recruited by Wales Millenium Centre because of their interest in the dances of Hip Hop culture i.e. Breakin, Lockin and Poppin. There were also people interested in commercial street dance. They wanted to learn about Hip Hop theatre and how they can use the dance skills to create a theatrical presentation rather than routines on stage.

Coleg Criw Cymru took place at WMC offering a week long residential summer course for a group of young people to tighten up their hip hop skills and create a brand new piece of hip hop theatre. Along the way, they got to work with some of the best tutors in rapping, graffiti and hip hop dance, as well as a top athlete and other professional artists. The week was intensive and hardcore, and the results were amazing.

The second stage of Coleg Criw Cymru was in October. Kwesi worked with the group to further their skills to create a piece that was performed as part of Wales Millenium Centre five year anniversary. They also had the opportunity to be taught by Hip Hop pioneer, Mr. Wiggles. It was also one of the first projects to receive the Inspire mark from the cultural Olympiad.
