Kevin Paradox
Hip Hop Freestyle

Build up by breaking down is Kevin’s matra for practice. It is the main way he gains awareness of the technical and expressive capacity within Hip Hop Freestyle. Like language, dance can be dissected into sentences, words and letters which in turn creates more awarness of ones narrative in movement and strenghten their statement, their expression.

In the workshops Kevin takes the students on a journey of exploration through different perspectives and ways to approach Hip Hop Freestyle. With a variaty of movement methods and theoretical concepts the dancers are given tools to develope a higher technical sensibilty and challenge not just their physical but also their creative and expressive capacity within their freestyle.

Topics covered within the workshops conclude Groove, Flow, Concept, Texture and Structure which are all explored with the students through a scope of Kevin’s movement philosophy.

Growing up in a family of musicians Kevin Paradox started dancing at the age of 7. His skill however did not come naturally as after10 years of dance he would find he still lots to learn about the cultural, technical and creative nature within the movement. This ignited an inexhaustible curiosity and passion for the envelopment of mind, body and soul within Hip Hop Freestyle, Inspired by not just dance but art in general Kevin took inspiration from his interests in martial arts, sports, science and philosophy and used their principles to develop his own blueprint for his movement. Researching and developing his own dance theory, exercises and philosophy through his mantra ‘Build up by Breaking down’ and combining it with passion and hard work made him the dancer known today.
