I came across this channel on youtube a while ago. As we all know Break dancing is world wide known around the globe. This location is in Uganda. Google it to learn more.
The project they’re doing is actually one of the things I wanted to see progress a lot in the hip hop community. I hope more organizations form like this in the future to help preserve the knowledge and promote hip hop culture in a positive manner.
Here’s a clip of the workshop from Arua, Uganda

Break dance Project Uganda or (BPU) is a Non-Profit organization which uses breaking (break dance) and other elements of Hiphop to promote social change and social responsibility. It was started in February 2006. It uses Hiphop as a tool to bring together people from different social, economical, educational, tribal and religious backgrounds. BPU offers free break dance classes in Kampala at Sharing youth Center every Monday & Wednesday from 5pm to 8pm And every Saturday in Gulu Youth Center from 2pm to 4pm. “BPU” also gives lessons in juvenile prisons, local and international schools, youth & community centers, orphanages etc. Apart from the free dance classes, the organization partners with others to provide both formal and informal education opportunities such as leadership workshops, peer mentoring, voluntary counseling, visual arts, photography, videography, music, drama, I.T skills training and sports.
