Young performers learnt gravity defying moves during a break dancing workshop led by a professional company.

Fourteen pupils at King Edward VI and Hardwick Middle Schools, in Bury St Edmunds, were taught a variety of techniques by Bboy’s Attic at the Apex,

The company, who took time out of their rehearsal time before performing a show at the venue, also discussed the role of a professional break dancer.

Helen Frost, subject leader for dance at King Edward VI School, said: “It’s opened up their thinking in terms of dance. With break dancing there’s a focus on the strength as well as the musicality.”

The schools are part of the Bury Schools Partnership.
