World BBoy Classic Breakdance Championship in Rotterdam

The world’s best breakdancers battled it out at the World BBoy Classic 2011, a spectacular international Breakdance championship event in Rotterdam on July 17th.

World BBoy Classic is an event where innovation and creativity are key. From the invited dancers, the choice of judges, the DJ’s, the MC’s, the competition to the use of the Maassilo venue World BBoy Classic puts innovation and creativity in all event aspects.

The event’s main objective is to find out if two dancers from the same crew could compete with two international top dancers who have never danced together before.

WBC consists of two competitions; a “Qualifier event” and a “Main Event”.
The qualifier is open for everybody to compete. The top 8 duo’s from the qualifier are called “The Challengers”.

In the main event the 8 challengers get a chance to compete against “The Great Eight”. The Great Eight will be formed only 1 hour before the start of the Main Event by randomly selecting 8 duo’s out of 16 specially invited professional dancers from all over the world.

World BBoy Classic was established in 2009 by the Rotterdam based organisation office 45 Live. Besides the events The Notorious IBE and Dutch BBoy Championships 45 Live felt the need to create an innovative, strong and unique BBoy event concept and put Rotterdam back on the map of the international Hip Hop dance scene.
