Jack Robinson

Jack Robinson is a Hip Hop artist, a street styles and breaking specialist. Since dancing himself as a Cheshire Dance youth dancer, Jack went on to teach dance in California and trained at the Debbie Reynolds and Millennium dance centres. His journey has made him very conscious of the possibility for youth dance initiatives to inspire young dancers, and also of the lack of training and progression routes for young street styles and break dancers (Jack doesn’t have a ‘formal’ dance education.)

Jack works throughout the UK, a keen advocate for Boys in Dance & also Hip Hop dance being seen as equal to other forms. He works with many different community groups, the private dance sector & education, most recently delivering the Urban Module & Chester University for the past two years.

Passionate about increasing access to training in street styles for all young people, Jack founded Dope Male Performance Company (DMPC) in 2011 – an All Male Hip-Hop Dance Company.
DMPC offer classes for boys from ages 8 to young adults & with opportunities for national performances & progression routes into the professional company. From performance opportunities at large scale event such as UDance, to regional outdoor festivals such as NOW Northwich, and community events in the North West, DMPC gives male performers new experiences to thrive and grow.

DMPC created their first professional touring piece ‘Pandora’s Boombox’ in 2021 which helped to push hip hop Theatre in the Northwest of England, broaden people’s mind to what hip hop can be & expand boys’ access to dancing. The company & Jack are the 1st ever Company/Artist in residence at the Crewe Lyceum Theatre due to their presence and efforts within the Cheshire community.

"Dance is an art form that develops the boys both physically and emotionally. To see them grow from young dancers into thriving professionals is what makes it all worthwhile."
