FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Battle of all Battles
It’s the ultimate battle, the world championship of breakdancing, a contest that will pit 20 of the world’s top b-boy crews against each other for a chance to be crowned the best. It promises to be an epic night of b-boy dance action from the greatest performers in the world today.
It is the Braun Battle of the Year Finals 2011, which take place in Montpellier, France on November 19 for the second year running. Prepare to be blown away by the action and excitement. The finalists have battled hard just to get this far. Over the last six months a total of 35 qualifying rounds have taken place all over the world from the USA to Singapore, from Germany to Japan. From a starting list of 350 crews and 3,000 b-boys, just 20 crews have made it to the final. They will be psyched and ready to give the performance of their lives for a shot at the ultimate prize in b-boying.
Each crew has six minutes to perform a choreographed routine. The five judges will look at synchronicity, stage-presence, choreography and their choice of music. In addition they’ll study their footwork, freezes and power-moves. Four teams will then be selected for the battle finals before the tempo hits a new height for the 15 minute final. Here two crews will duke it out in front of a frenzied crowd of 12,000 b-boy fans.
The event will be hosted by DJs Mar and Lean Rock ? both well-known for their spinning versatility ? and the MCs Trix, Nasty, Maleek and Spax.
All eyes will be on the defending champions, Korea?s Jinjo crew, but no one has ever won a consecutive title in 20 years. Hot on their heels will be local favorites, Vagabonds, from France, who won in 2006. But there will be so much talent on display that it will be a very tough call for the judges.
On top of the main event, there’ll be a series of gigs, workshops, 1vs1 performances, We B*Girlz Battles, lectures, parties, dance theatre shows and much more to make the Braun BOTY a killer all-round hip hop extravaganza!
Organizer Thomas Hergenröther said: ?The Braun BOTY 2011 Finals will once again be the biggest b-boy event in the world. We are expecting 12,000 spectators and a total of 20 b-boy crews from all over the world coming to Montpellier, France.?
?All crews have been practicing long and hard for this one day, trying to convince our five international judges with their choreography in the first round to rank top four and to qualify for the final battles. To win the competition the crews have to come up with an extraordinary choreography first. For the battle finals, a high level of individual skill and a good crew tactic is needed.?
The Braun BOTY finals will take place in Montpellier, France at the Park & Suites Arena on the November 19. Doors open at 16.30. Tickets cost ?31.30. For more information, visit www.braunbattleoftheyear.com.
