Marvel at breakdance mastery with breaking battles, workshops, and lectures at Red Bull BC One Camp USA at Warehouse Live from Friday, May 17 to Sunday, May 19, 2019.
This weekend, Houston plays host to the world-renowned Red Bull BC One, a breaking battle competition that celebrates the street dance scene with three days of high-flying dancing, workshops, and lectures available for free to the Houston community.
Open to the public with an RSVP, Red Bull BC One Camp USA brings together some of the top national breaking competitors and choreographers for a whirlwind weekend highlighted by the Red Bull BC One B-Girl and B-Boy National Finals with a trip to the Mumbai World Final in November on the line.
For those that want to launch to the next level, Red Bull BC One Camp USA provides a series of workshops, from the basics to the more nuanced elements of breaking and street dance, led by accomplished breakers and choreographers, including Jabbawockeez member Phi, Angyil, and Mr. Wiggles.
Over the weekend, breaking competitors from across the nation will be battling it out at Red Bull BC One Camp USA to beats provided by the city’s own DJ Mr. Rogers, OG Ron C., and Dayta, DJ Babyjae, & Kleancutt of The Kracker Nuttz.
The main events during Red Bull BC One Camp USA, the US B-Girl Final on Saturday, May 18 and the US B-Boy Final on Sunday, May 19, see a field of sixteen competitors whittled down to a single United States representative for each to advance to November’s Mumbai World Final.
Attendees that RSVP will also get to witness competing breakers throw it back to the 1970s era of popping, a Red Bull BC One All Stars exhibition, a back-and-forth game of B-R-E-A-K, and the All Styles Bonnie & Clyde coed duo competition.
Workshops & Lectures
Red Bull BC One Camp USA also hosts interactive workshops throughout the weekend, designed for all skill sets and levels, with instruction from professional breakers. A series of lectures also explore cultural and hip hop stories, as well provide discussion on techniques.
Touch on the basics of breaking with B-boys Kid David, Casper, and Luigi in the Break It ‘Til You Make It class, let original Jabbawockeez crew member Phi teach the fundamentals of popping, isolations, and dime stops in Sight to Sound, or learn from two-time Red Bull BC One titleholder, Menno, as he leads a workshop on enhancing your style in Original Flow.
