With a promise to reach a brand new audience, Danny has was enlisted by Kenrick Sandy and Blak Whyte Gray. Composer Michael Asante is also involved and was quoted saying. “When hip-hop started in Brooklyn it was there as a form of self expression, so it’s amazing to be at the forefront of bringing the dance form into the UK education system. It’s our job to keep the authenticity, which is why we’re so excited to be making this film.”
One of the greatest parts of this story, is the AQA (the UK’s largest exam body” want to use this to form party of the GCSE Dance curriculum. Hip-Hop (represented in the positive way it was intended) will be showcased to the youth across the country. Alongside the capture, additional films will give the piece context, looking into BBE’s methodology and the artistry of hip-hop. We’ll be posting any further information that comes our way.
