B-Boys and B-girls, now is your time to shine and perhaps book your place for the 2024 Olympic Games.
The world’s most prestigious breaking competition, Red Bull BC One, is now looking for the country’s top B-boy and B-girl.
Celebrating 20 years in existence, Red Bull BC One is the longest running breaking competition in the world and has established global superstars in the world of dance.
With breaking becoming an official Olympic sport at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, competitions like Red Bull BC One are now more important than ever to find the country’s top stars.
Four qualifying cyphers will be taking place across South Africa this month and in March culminating in the national final taking place in Cape Town on 24 April.
From there, the top B-boy and B-girl will represent South Africa at the Red Bull BC One World final later in the year.
Cape Town dancers will get their shot on 13 and 14 March at the Joseph Stone Hall in Athlone.
B-girl, DJ and producer, Courtnae’ Paul, who made it to the Top 32 in the Red Bull BC One e-battle 2020, is excited to see what the breakers will bring to the cyphers this year.
“With the dance calendar being quite empty lately, Red Bull BC One is always something that the breakers and audiences look forward to, so I’m sure the B-boys and B-girls will leave it all on the floor.”
Three-time Red Bull BC One champion, B-boy The Curse, has high hopes: “This year, the Red Bull BC One competition is probably the most anticipated breaking event of the year. It’s going to be a blast!” .
Breakers will need to register on www.redbull.co.za/bcone to participate in the regional qualifying cyphers.
