Ubuntu B-Boyz is a South African breakdancing group from Mitchell’s Plain. They received international acclaim when they were crowned world champions in 2006 in Germany.

The Ubuntu crew have opened for artists like 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Beyonce and Kanye West. They perform throughout South Africa, and have just recently performed at Rocking the Daisies festival near Cape Town.

Apart from commercial performances, they also take part in ‘dance battles’ and competitions against other break dancing groups around the world.

The word Ubuntu is an African concept meaning ‘I am because we are’.
