Breakin’ Convention

Tuesday 13 – Wednesday 14 June

Breakin’ Convention, a ground-breaking showcase of hip-hop dance theatre, is back at Birmingham Hippodrome as part of B-SIDE Hip-Hop Festival and celebrating 20 years!


Expect jaw-dropping and inspiring performances from internationally celebrated poppers, lockers, b-boys and b-girls in an incredible event that presents local talent alongside global sensations.

We’re excited to be welcoming South Korea’s breakin’ crew MOVER, Netherland’s influential forces of funk Ghetto Funk Collective, and Dutch international hip-hop pole champion Yvonne Smink. Hosted and curated by UK hip-hop theatre legend and Breakin’ Convention Artistic Director Jonzi D, the event also features DJs, graffiti artists and freestyle sessions taking place all over the building.

Run out of Sadler’s Wells in London, Breakin’ Convention has been leading the hip hop theatre revolution since 2004. Book your tickets now and be part of this ultimate celebration of hip hop culture.
