Battle Of The Year

http://www.battleoftheyear.de

Description:
The Battle of the Year (also known as BOTY) is one of the biggest breakdance championships in the world. Event is often referred to as the ‘world cup of breakdancing’.

As a b-boy, it does not get much bigger than competing at the Battle of the Year finals. Just to get there, crews must first compete in regional BOTY preliminaries around the world. Then, in front of a packed audience, they perform a six-minute choreographed routine which is judged on synchronicity, stage presence, theme, music, as well as b-boying moves.

The best crews then go through to the final battles, an electrifying unscripted play-off that sees the rival b-boys battling each other, face-to-face, individually and as a crew, for the ultimate prize.

But BOTY is much more than a contest. It's a week-long festival of hip-hop culture, featuring 1 vs 1 and We B*Girlz battles, gigs, workshops and more to ensure the event stays true to its b-boy roots — spreading hip-hop culture to a larger public audience.

The competition has grown dramatically since the first event took place in Germany in 1990. Now held in Montpellier, France, Battle of the Year attracts a sell-out crowd of 12,000 while up to 50,000 watch the event live online.

Here you can find the history of Battle Of The Year as well as BOTY results and links to videos.
