Hip Hop Vibe


Bringing urban to Dundee is Hip Hop Vibe; an event that celebrates street dance, art and music.

On October 20 from 2-9pm, Bonar Hall will host choreographer Andy Instone; who has worked with artists such as Dizzee Rascal, Sean Paul and Alexandra Burke.

This time working in union with Dundee Dance Partnership, Instone will deliver a programme of urban tutorials and a closing party.

Scottish Dance Theatre Head of Creative Learning, Dawn Hartley, said: We open with Andy Instone giving us a presentation about the history of street dance; and after that it’s practical dance, graffiti art, and DJ skills workshops; finishing with an after party where everyone can get their groove on.”

Attending the event will be Leisure & Culture Dundee’s Urban Moves Dance Company, but Hartley explained guests with no urban knowledge were also welcome.

She said: “The event is open to all over five years old. We want a wide range of age groups, because dance is for everyone.”

Hartley added: “Attendees need only bring enthusiasm, a smile, and clothes they can move easily in.”

Tickets to access all areas cost £25; with a discounted rate of £40 for two. Tickets to the after-party, which runs from 7.30 – 9pm, are £10. Guests can book tickets and register for workshops via the Dundee Rep website.

Hartley said: “We are very privileged to get Andy Instone up to Scotland for this event, his passion is contagious and knowledge is priceless. The event is a must for all dance enthusiasts!”

Leisure & Culture Dundee Dance Officer, Alex Hare, concluded: “Leisure & Culture Dundee are delighted to be part of this event. We have been busy organising an exciting timetable for the day and are looking forward to the community celebrating all things urban.”
