*** Last B-Boy/B-Girl Standing 3v3 ***
PRELIMINARIES will be regular battles; Last Bboy/Bgirl Standing comes into effect with Top8
3 competitors from both sides come to battle. The first two dancers exchange rounds and the judges vote immediately afterwards, and the loser of that round must sit down, making it 2v3. Battle continues until one side is completely eliminated. Hypothetically, 1 dancer could defeat an entire 3 person squad.
Here's how it works (SEE VIDEO) http://youtu.be/HsqywQUXy1g
3-v-3 Registration List:
*** Soulebrity / FreeStyle Elements ***
SOULebrity was created by Flo-Ology in 2003. This is a gathering for dancers of all styles to share the cypher to an eclectic assortment of fresh beats (house, hip hop, breaks, funk, and much more).
The KEY however is ‘PARTICIPATION’. You can compete, but the point of Soulebrity is to have many circles, with everyone from non-competitive dancers to the audience getting down to great music and enjoying the vibe! To come to this event is to experience and enjoy this raw, thriving underground culture and community. All we need from you is your vibrancy!
The Cypher Battle Breakdown:
- There will be 3 competitive cyphers. Hosts = Judges.
- Invited hosts will inspire and dance with all contestants. After a one hour cypher 9 dancers will be selected.
- The top 9 will then dance with the hosts in a final cypher.
- Each host will award $250 to one of the finalist; therefore the possibility of 3 winners. If all 3 hosts select the same dancer, that dancer wins the full $750!
