Alley Oop is a fun, energetic outdoor workshop activity for ages 6-16.

Using dance and basketball, explore what it takes to bounce back from a fall, leap into the unknown and, when the pressure is on, how we need to work together to make that slam dunk.

Developed by Room 2 Manoeuvre’s Tony Mills and Hong Kong based artist Yip Chan, this unique activity will offer you the chance to learn the basics of basketball and hip hop/breakin’ and eventually discover how dance and sport can come together.

The workshop is for children only but up to 2 adults per child can watch from the outside of the basketball court.

Alley Oop will take place in an outdoor basketball court. Bring suitable clothes to move in and lots of energy.
