Returning on its sixth season is the Kigali, Breaking Cypher, an annual hip-hop dance event, which offers a chance to dancers in different styles to compete.

The event, which mainly attracts youth, contemporary dancers and hip-hop lovers is characterised by workshops and live break-dance competition sessions.

Taking place on March 24, at Kigali’s Club Rafiki, the event is emerging as one of the top East African hip hop platforms that brings together top dancers from Rwanda and the region.

This edition aims at harnessing collaboration and inclusion of persons with disabilities of neuromuscular disorder, a condition affecting the bones and joints of the body.

Through dance as a tool, the event seeks to engage, work together, share, learn and allow them adapt to any situation and find solutions despite feelings of vulnerability. Sponsored by Kigali’s Goethe Institut, Kigali Breaking Cypher will this year feature breaking 1vs1, Afro House 7 to smoke adults, hip hop 1vs1 adults, Afro House 1vs1, children battle among other surprise performers.
