It’s time to shake things up with a double dose of hip hop talent! Join us this week at Mad Dance House for our first Sunday session of the year, absolutely packed with rich hip hop history. The extremely talented Che Pritchard and Errol Prince Cenita are here to take you back to where it all began!! Old and mid school hip hop represent the golden age of the genre, which formed the foundation for many of the grooves, techniques and styles you see today. This double session is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and will help you form a strong base to support you in freestyle and choreography. We look forward to seeing you all there!

======| WHO IS CHE |======
As a choreographer, Che has worked internationally on feature films, music videos, and stage performances since 2008. Starting out primarily as a freestyler in the street dance scene, Che then started training in a number of styles when he moved to Canada in 2007 and is now an established choreographer having choreographed dance events for Budweiser, Nike, Coca-Cola and Smirnoff as well as choreographing for artists Shazelle & Dubmarine. Che has choreographed events as part of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver and the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles.

As a dancer, the majority of Che's professional work has been done in Canada, the US, India and now back home in Australia. His primary styles are House dance, Hip Hop foundations, and Commercial choreography. Che also includes acrobatics ('tricking') and elements of some martial arts in his movement style.

Che has appeared internationally in feature films Red Riding Hood, Cabin in the Woods and This Means War, featured in music videos for Dubmarine, Shazelle, Yes You & Vernon, and done stage performances with Guy Sebastion, Samantha Jade, Carly Rae Jepson, Shiloh and Eva Avila. He's also been an official dancer for the National Rugby League (NRL) and Big Bash League (BBL) T20 Cricket. Che is a current member of Swagamama, one of Australia's most well-known dance crews, and has also been a member of a number of other successful dance crews as well as being a featured dancer in numerous corporate and cultural dance events across Australia.

======| WHO IS ERROL |======
Errol is the founder and director of Trick Nasty Productions (Producer of Brisbane Silver Bullets / Qld Firebirds Lorna Jane Move Crew Cheerleaders). He was also the director of Prince Academy, Fresh Elements Dance Studio, Industrie1 Dance Studios & the Founder of one of Australia’s longest running street dance/hip hop crew, ‘Trick Nasty Crew’, since 2001. Errol and his crew (TNC), in the late 90's/early 2000's and to this day are still considered 'trend-setters'. He has influenced the style, charisma, formula and 'flavour' of many crews, teachers and dancers.

Errol is regarded as one of the most versatile street dancers, choreographers and mentors in Australia with abundance of experience in Hip Hop and Street Dance. He has over 25+ years of experience in teaching, crew dancing, battles and professional work under his belt, both locally and internationally.

Errol is without a doubt, one of the most, iconic street dancers Australia has to offer. He has proven his dancing prowess through his continued involvement in both the underground and commercial world. He prides himself on his ongoing 'mentorship' with many dancers, his contribution in the street dance scene and most importantly his outstanding 'Community Work' that spans almost his entire dance career. Despite all his achievements, Errol continues to remain humble and considers himself a life-long student of dance.
