Defiance are a young group of dancers (under 14) based in Brighton. They are, as their name suggests, pushing all the boundaries of streetdance and hip hop, working and sweating in every second of their training! They are taught by Machis Baboulene a young choreographer who grew up in the Streetfunk classes since 2008, now teaching many of them and running this crew. Defiance are highly competitive and work to win the competitions however, they also have a motive which lies in exploring the possibilities of group movement, always trying new things and working together to create a great spectacle. "Defiance are just crazy, the way they work and their personalities give me life and I love teaching every second with them."
