Last weekend we were invited, for the 5th consecutive year, to share what we do at Hampstead Summer Festival. It was probably the most fun year ever!
Featuring a host of our open-class students, our professional performance company, Manifest Nation, and the Hampstead public, we shared classes, performances and Hampstead’s longest ‘Soul Train Line’!
Here are some highlights from our wonderful weekend..
We’d like to thank all those that joined us, and for more footage, check this Instagram post !
Last month, some of our adult dancers from our professional company, Manifest Nation, competed at the World Crew Battle event in Deptford, London.
The winners of the event had the opportunity to represent the UK at the international finals in Berlin! Alex, Angelika, Francesc, Kadeem & Tru managed to make it to the final but were defeated by Rain Future Crew who went on to get to the finals in Berlin too. Props to them.
Please join us in applauding our squad for a job well done and stay connected to the Facebook page for updates on what’s happening next with them. French publication, Striter, reported that Manifest Nation were the only crew that came prepared effectively for the event.
It showed 🙂
Last month we were invited to run a hallowe’en dance activity for Comcast / NBC Universal at their London offices and great fun was had by all.
This event, for 200 select children, was an opportunity for Tru, Ryan, Damien and new-face, Kerri, to teach a revised version of Michael Jackson’s’Thriller’ routine, and a fun time was had by all.
Our booking agent, Kat at Shift London, had this to say after the event:
“You guys were absolutely superb, you absolutely stole the show. It was better than what I had imagined.”
We were moved by this account, and hope you enjoy some pictures from the occasion! Visit here to see whether we can enrich YOUR event 🙂
The Big Dance is a nationwide celebration of dance, led by the Mayor of London in partnership with People Dancing, and is in it’s 10th year. All across the country this summer different professional organisations, community groups and everything in between are engaging in different activities, and here at B-Better we have quite a unique involvement!

In other news, Tinman (Damien) had the opportunity to discuss the finer points of Hiphop dance with London’s new Mayor, Sadiq Khan, at the recent Bus stop in Trafalgar Square! The Patron’s Lunch was a large event to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday and we were honoured to be part of the occasion 🙂
