SURREY — Mattias Boon loves the new space in Surrey for his hip-hop organization, he just wants more free time to plan and organize events there.

Boon and others with Streetrich Hop Hop Society have a new home at City Parkway Studio, a former auto garage at 10660 City Parkway, located across from the BC Lions practice field.

Streetrich and Royal Canadian Theatre Company share the studio, officially opened in June following a year-long renovation project spearheaded by the City of Surrey.

Boon, Streetrich’s founder and director, says the organization has big plans to fill the 2,500-square-foot studio with hip-hop dance, music and art, but as volunteers he and the others are a bit short of time at the moment.

“I wish we could be providing more programs already, but because we all work on a volunteer basis it’s coming along really slowly,” he told the Now-Leader.

Drop-in breakdance and DJ lessons are held there every Wednesday evening, starting at 7 p.m. and ending at 10, for a cost of $3 per person.

A more prominent event at the studio will be a Super Summer Camp held from Monday to Thursday (Aug. 14-17), featuring instruction by members of SuperNaturalz, a Toronto-based crew celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
