About Rush Wepiha:
Rush is an established figure in the Hip Hop world with a story that spans over 18 years. From his humble beginnings on the streets of New Zealand learning Breaking fundamentals and Hip Hop culture, Rush has taken his craft to top level as a member of the five-time Australian Bboy Champion Crew, an untouched record to date, and now as an internationally respected Breaking judge.

As an accredited instructor with the Australasian Calisthenics Organisation (ACO) Rush uses the discipline of callisthenics training as an integral part of his dance methodology and overall holistic approach to health, exercise and performance. As a youth mentor, Rush combines the strength and conditioning that stems from callisthenics with the universal languages of music and dance to encourage youth to embrace a positive lifestyle.

He has designed his ‘Breakthru – Hip Hop 4 Health’ workshops to encompass all the elements of Hip Hop while encouraging the participants to add their own traditions and cultural flavour to the mix.

Rush is a member of three world renowned crews - Fresh Sox (Australia), 7 Dollars (Switzerland) and MZK (New York) and has trained under Bboy pioneers Alien Ness (Bronx), Poe One (Los Angeles), Storm (Germany) & Break Ezy (Brooklyn).

Forever a student and keen to spread his knowledge, Rush has a fresh and unique teaching style that passes on to his students not only his knowledge but also his love for the dance and Hip Hop culture.
