If you’d like to learn breakdancing, or you’re a seasoned b-boy/b-girl, we’re the society for you. The Breakdancing Society was founded by Dan Thomas, Robert Evans and Kris Zeigler in 2002, and has come a long way since, making appearances across Exeter, such as at the RAG Fashion Show, Dancing Devon, Strictly Come Dancing and other events in the South West of England. We have also competed in the finals of Exeter’s Got Talent for two years. We welcome all abilities, from total beginners to experienced breakers, so don’t be shy if you’ve never tried breaking before; now’s your chance! Lessons are taught at both a total-beginner and intermediate level in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere by Matt Macklin a.k.a B-boy Splinter from Devon’s Just 4 Funk crew. Lessons run weekly and we have spaces booked out for training and jamming sessions several nights a week. As well as running lessons and taking part in performances, we have a range of socials throughout the year. We sometimes meet for drinks or go to Exeter’s Firehouse for pizza, and we regularly hit the clubs in town to liven up the dancefloor! If the weather’s good, we’ve also had some jam sessions down by the quayside.
