Cockburn likely to keep hosting junior breakdancing state titles

THE Cockburn Youth Centre is likely to continue hosting the WA Junior Breaking Championships.

More than 200 competitors and spectators packed the venue in September to watch some of the state’s most talented Bboys and Bgirls go to work showing off their skills.

It was the second time the City of Cockburn had held the event.

Youth Centre duty supervisor Kerri Mulford said the success of the competition and the number of girls taking part showed the venue was perfect for hosting the competition.

“The City intends to hold this event again,” she said.

“The breakdancing community needs a facility that is community-orientated, accessible and safe and allows (dancers) to practice and perform.”

Canning Vale eight year old Aadhishan Ganapathipillai was stoked after claiming the Under 10 category of the championships.

“The Junior Breaking Championship was an awesome experience,” he said.

“I was very nervous but started to become more and more confident with each round.

“It still hasn’t sunk in yet that I am the WA breaking champ for Under 10s.”
