Paul Ashford

Paul ‘Pash’ Ashford, is our Belfast based Bboy, who has been breaking for the last 12 years. After moving to Belfast to attend university, he met the Belfast City Breakers, an original old school Bboy crew, who introduced him to Bboying and authentic HipHop culture. Since then Paul along with fellow crew mates started Northern Soles Crew, who now carries on the tradition of each one teach one. Northern Soles are primarily a battle crew made up of various nationalities, who regularly compete in, organise and host Bboy events in Belfast. They regularly run workshops, host urban exposés, organise social dance events uniting various dance styles, Paul is the Co Founder, and Director of Cypher Sessions, Ireland’s premier Bboy event. Paul has also recently started up a charity “5th Element”, in order to fund outreach projects, put on inspiring events, and animate Belfast with HipHop culture. In his spare time he is a designer, who’s big into photography, food, travel, music and hiphop.
