Cypher: Creative Learning

Four battle hardened b-boys use raw skill, strength and talent in a supple symphony of movement choreographed by hip hop artist Nick Power.

In the Studio

“Hip Hop’s most important ritual performed by world-class dancers.”

Cypher, Performed by B*boys Akorn, Tass, Stevie G and Blue Image: Johnny Chiang

A celebration of hip hop culture 

A Cypher is hop hop's most important ritual, a circle where style, rivalry and community exist and evolve.

Students will be enthralled as dancers spin, flip and fly past in a blur of limbs and trainers; battling it out in the ultimate hip hop ritual. Pushing movement and physicality to the absolute limit, this high energy dance show embodies the notion of taking creative risks, tackling challenges and the liberating power of movement.
