10 Years, ONE Country ONE Team

 10 Years, ONE Country, ONE Team!

 

In 2005 we started something new.  We wanted to create an event that genuinely exposed UK dancers to the World in a unique format that was unseen before. It was a completely different world then.

The biggest events in the community were GWI Streetdance Weekend, an excellent event that was pioneering. A group of dancers led by Kenrick Sandy and included people like Turbo and Mukhtar was absolutely dominant. The show ‘Bounce’ from Bounce Streetdance Company in Sweden had made it’s debut.

Since then the entire industry has changed a lot, but one thing remains the same: Being The UK Hip Hop Dance Champion is still one of the most sought after crowns.

That’s why this year we are bring the battle back to the regions, a great event, close to home.

First Stop November 9, 2014 – Birmingham! The event will take place at The Crossing, 1 Milk St, Digbeth, Birmingham, West Midlands B5 5SU, United Kingdom

Categories and Age Divisions, and Which Region

Dancers can enter any age division in ANY region however there are some guidelines.

World Championship Track – ANY crew at ANY level of experience/ability who aim to qualify for the World Championships

Intermediate Section – For any crew who consider themselves beyond novice level but don’t wish to compete in the World Championship Track. Winners will be regional and/or national champions in the Intermediate Section but will not qualify for Worlds.

Novice Section – for new crews or dancers who are looking to ‘get their feet wet’ in our competition. you can be in the novice section for up to two years (or if 90% of the members in the crew are new). Winners will be regional and/or national champions in the Novice Section but will not qualify for Worlds.

Beginners – For new dancers and new crews who’ve never competed or just started their competition journey. Winners will be regional and/or national champions in the Beginners Section but will not qualify for Worlds.

Advancing to another level – You can only declare your level when you start. You may always move UP a level but you cannot move down. This is the same for perpetual teams/crews.

Why self-selection? – Why do we allow dancers to self select their level? We believe people are honest and sensible. What kind of crew or dancer would deliberately enter an event at a level below ability? That’s like a 16 year old racing a 5 year old. Perhaps in the future we will introduce rules but for now we have a clear policy that objections must be raised at the event, complaints must be in writing within 7 days of the event.
