Dancehall Origins 2nd Edition, 2017

Founded in May 2016, Dancehall Origins promotes and supports dancers, teachers and performers from Jamaica to share their practice in the UK.

As an advocate for Dancehall history and culture, Dancehall Origins aims to increase cultural awareness and appreciation of Dancehall by providing opportunities to connect with Dancehall Originators.

The first event took place in London on Saturday 15th October 2016 with invited artists Global Bob and Shelly Xpressionz, their first time teaching in the UK. Check out the highlights video here.

The video above captures highlights from our 2nd Edition, 18 March 2017, with Global Bob, Crazyhype and Stacia Fya direct from Jamaica teaching for the first time together in London.
