Continent Battle at the Nagoya Red Bull BC One Camp 2016

Posted by on Dec. 09, 2016

This year the Last Chance Cypher was one of the new features of the Red Bull BC One Japan Camp leading up to the World Final in Nagoya. On the first day of the Camp 38 Cypher winners from 35 countries battled for the last open spot on the world podium. On Saturday B-Boy Leony from Belem Brazil was victorious and battled Red Bull BC One All Star Taisuke in the opening battle of the World Final.

One day before, on the second and final day of the Red Bull BC One Camp the 37 B-Boys who did not make it to the World Final stage were invited to compete in the first edition of the so-called “Continent Battle”. This last and final program turned out to be one of the highlights of an amazing Red Bull BC One Camp, which captured the international community spirit that lives strong within breaking.  

Continental Battle

In the Continent Battle, the Cypher winners joined by Red Bull BC One All Stars Pelezinho, Lil G, Taisuke and Lilou were grouped in four teams to represent their continent; Team Europe, Team Middle East Africa, Team Asia and Team Americas combining North and South America.

A fifth team was formed by the B-Boys and B-Girls of the hosting country Japan. Earlier during the day dancers from all over Japan had gathered for an intense two hours cypher session with experienced Japanese B-Boy judges walking around selecting the best B-Boys and B-Girls for team Japan.   

In an open format without judges all continent teams got the chance to battle each other. Fired by an emphatic MC Tyrone from The Notorious IBE, MC Seiji from Japan and the hard-hitting beats of DJ Lean Rock every continent team understood the task at hand: show no weakness and represent your skills for country and continent. The result, 10 very enjoyable high level Breaking battles all respectfully and enthusiastically applauded by the Japanese crowd, one of the best audiences to have when it comes to dance competition. 

In Nagoya the Last Chance Cypher, the Continent Battle but also the workshops, talk shows, Popping and All Styles Battles as well as the digital art & video features on display showed that the cultural spirit around the Red Bull BC One Camp is growing, making the Red Bull BC One World Final a home for both competition and community.
