November 4th the Vanguard will be supporting CUDA at "Off the Hook Jam" in New Jersey. CUDA Culture will be presenting NBK with the Legacy award in continuation of their project to document New Jersey’s Breaking history. They will also be introducing the Breaking sessions code of conduct which you can find below.
The code of conduct was created by Breakers after a UHHV meeting was held in February of this year to foster unity and cultural awareness in the scene. The need for emotional safety was priority and a group of Breakers founded the NY Breaking Alliance and began to meet in person and then on Zoom to make a list of agreed points that can be displayed at Breakin sessions to shift personal and group attitudes when training together. If you would like a copy or an orientation please contact us.
November Nov 17-19th Furious Styles Crew will be celebrating their 30th anniversary in Phoenix, Arizona with Breaking, Aerosol and DJ Battles as well as dance performances, a panel discussion and film exhibition.
