Step Up Group

On the weekend Mimbre Youth Company (MYC) went to Breaking Conventions at Sadler’s Wells. They got to see the big stage, where they will perform later in the year and Kieran even got to try it out.  He was selected by Jonzi D to come up on stage and show off his moves in front of over 1000 people. He did some amazing free styling, did a big shout out to Mimbre and won a free Breaking Convention T-shirt. Hold tight Kieran.

We had a wonderful time at our first Collective Movement Festival the weekend before Easter and thank everybody, especially all our young people, the volunteers and the numerous audience members who together helped make it such a great success! Also, we'd like to thank everybody for the nice feedback and supporting our aim to raise more money over the coming months to secure the continuation of our acrobatics youth classes. 

Over the half term Mimbre had lots of different activities and projects taking place: Mimbre Youth (The Step Up Group) started working on the "Riot Offspring" performance with Sadler’s Wells Theatre. We also ran street dance, acrobatics and choreography workshops to 13-19 years old as part of Discover Young Hackney and five of our young people took part in the Nation Youth Circus Event with Circus Space.

We at mimbre are so proud of our youth group, the Step Up group, who delivered a fantastic performance last Friday at Hackney Empire as part of the Discover Young Hackney Festival! VERY WELL DONE EVERYBODY!!! Below is a sneak review of the last instructions and back-stage preparations for the performance and the dress rehearsal on stage!
