Hip hop show returns to Sadler's Wells


The most famous ballet theatre in London is marking ten years of staging a hip hop event.

International and home-grown dancers showcase their talents at Breakin Convention, an annual festival held at Sadler's Wells.

Emma Ponsford, general manager of Breakin Convention; artistic director Jonzi and Kendra J Horsburgh, a choreographer at Birdcage all discuss how important the event is for helping to make hip hop recognised as an art form.
