Rhythm & Rhyme @VCU is proud to announce that V.I.B.E.S. (Virginia Intercollegiate Breaking Event Series) is back again this year! The purpose of the event is to foster community and friendly competition amongst the various college breaking clubs, as well as provide battle experience to said clubs. Our main event is the Intercollegiate 3v3 breaking battles, and we’re also offering a workshop by the one and only b-boy Metal from Repstyles Crew! Hope you’ll come through to dance, have a good time, and REP YOUR SCHOOL!
———WORKSHOP BY B-BOY METAL———
Are you looking to level up your skills in battling, ciphering, or performing? Geared towards beginner/intermediate Breakers, Metal’s workshop will touch upon many aspects of Breaking, including Toprock, Footwork, and creativity. Take the techniques and approaches from this workshop and incorporate them into your personal practice. Be ready for drills, games, and mini-ciphers. All experience levels are welcome, just be prepared to sweat!
ARRIVE ON TIME! Every jam we’ve hosted has started and ended on time, and we intend to keep that record. Metal’s Workshop starts STRICTLY at 11:00am and you definitely don’t wanna miss it. Prelims are starting at 2:30pm and not a minute later!!!! We will be strongly adhering to the event schedule below so account for travel time!
