Lavender Hill crew wins annual hip-hop dance competition

2017-08-08 06:01

Project 021 hosted its fifth annual hip-hop dance competition at the Bellville Civic Centre last Saturday.

According to Project 021 director David Cornelson, the event was well attended.

“After four hours of intense performances Hybridt Crew from Lavender Hill was crowned as the Mega Crew winner.”

He says this group of high school learners worked tirelessly through their June school holiday to perfect their performance and were well-deserved winners.

“This year we had schools from as far as Hout Bay and Ceres, including primary schools and high schools from Lavender Hill as well as Mitchell’s Plain. Crews participating from Lavender Hill always do very well at the competition and this year in particular their primary school’s Cool Vibrations did fantastically well,” he adds.

More than 200 children from all parts of Cape Town participated, says Cornelson, but they would not be able to perform had it not been for their parents.

“The support from parents who arranged their own transport to support the children was great. Parents also danced off. Both of the categories were won by Lavender Hill parents,” says Cornelson.

The primary schools category was especially tough this year with a record number of entries.

Cornelson says the winning high school crew, Hybridt Crew, has participated in the competition since 2013 and last won in 2014.

“So they have been pushing to get that title back.

“The event has grown in stature in terms of numbers, but also in terms of standard. Every year the crews push each other to improve and we have seen that over the years,” he explains.

The event is one of Project 021’s initiatives to create opportunities for young people to express their creative talents.

“We are just glad to create the opportunity for kids to showcase their talent and we will continue to do that through dance competitions as well as the other productions that we host. We will keep pushing and doing what we do because our objective is to develop young people through the performing arts.”
