Camps Breakerz Crew is a Breaking/Hip Hop crew that has been providing dance education and entertainment programs for the Gazan people for 20+ years, giving the youth an outlet for self-expression and trauma release. On February 23rd , 2024, “israel” bombed CBC’s dance studio in Nuseirat refugee camp, killing four students, under the age of 10, and their families. This atrocity is part of a larger pattern of a genocide perpetrated by “israel,” killing or injuring over 100,000 Palestinians since October 2023. In response, Dance for Falasteen Seattle is organizing a day of liberatory dance workshops to benefit CBC, while highlighting the ongoing genocide in Gaza and “israel”‘s 76-year occupation and ethnic cleansing of Palestine. The funds will help rebuild CBC’s studio and afford necessities to continue their program. 
We are hosting five open-level dance classes – Amapiano, House, Vogue Femme, Dabke, and Hip Hop. Each class will feature a Palestinian speaker, and discuss how that genre of dance relates to liberation. There will also be vendors, educational materials, and a vigil with the spotlight on the CBC martyrs (Rania, Totah, Maryam, Dana, and their families).
Our intention is to build solidarity between Seattle and Gaza communities, elevate Palestinian voices, educate the local community, honor the martyrs through what they loved to do, and facilitate community healing through movement. We hope you join us – for together, we’ll dance towards a brighter future of justice and peace.

All proceeds go to @campsbreakerz of Gaza
