Event info:
Red Bull BC One Cyphers are coming to Auckland on the 25th of May and Wellington 26th of May, where B-Boys and B-Girls will have the opportunity to show their skills in the open call cypher.

Red Bull BC One Cypher is a B-Boy duel, which gives two New Zealanders the chance to battle their way onto the Red Bull BC One Asia Pacific Qualifier stage in September, with the ultimate goal of being named World B-Boy Champion at the final in Rio de Janeiro!

The B-Boys will be judged in the art of break dancing by New Zealand B-boy pioneers; Douglas ‘Swervone’ Wright, Robert ‘Mayhem’ Ramsey and Sen ‘Khmer’ Thong. Each B-Boy will have the chance to show the judges their moves in an open florr Cypher, before a top 16 is decided upon. From here the 16 will compete in 1-on-1 knock out rounds, where they will have to show the judges 3 solos per battle to the beats DJ Spell spins for them.

The champion from each cypher in Auckland and Wellington wins the right to one of the 16 spots available at the BC One Asia Pacific Qualifier. Here they will represent New Zealand in the next level of the competition where they will battle fellow B-Boys from Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, South Asia, Laos and Vietnam in an attempt to reach the World Final, which will be held in December 2012.

B-Boys must register for their cypher by emailing their interest to freeflowcrew@hotmail.com.

All cyphers are free for spectators, where you will be hosted by Juce1 and watch some of New Zealand’s finest B-Boys battle to the beats of Red Bull Thre3Style 2011 Champion DJ Spell.

Since its birth in 2004, the Red Bull BC One has become the premiere competition in the world of B-Boying. While the competition has consistently attracted the best in the world, in 2011 the event series opened up to give any B-Boys the chance to compete through a multi-layered global qualification phase. For this great season, Red Bull BC One was voted best B-Boy Event 2011 at the World of Dance Awards.

At the World Final in Rio, 16 B-Boys will battle each other to determine who is “the one”, with at least six of those contenders coming from one of six continental Qualifier battles held across the globe.

The Qualifiers will be hosted in Mexico, the USA, the Netherlands, Russia, Egypt and New Zealand. The winners of the Qualifiers will secure their spot in the final competition held in Brazil. But while the excitement will undoubtedly build at these major qualifiers, the real story begins in March, when we kick off a series of over 60 local cyphers, held in more than 50 countries around the world. Every corner of the world will be represented, from Medellin to Zagreb, from San Diego to Osaka. Red Bull BC One will turn every corner of the world to ensure that dancers from any neighbourhood can get their feet on the floor.

While the winners of the six qualifiers are guaranteed a spot, the other 10 contestant spots will be hand-picked by an international team of experts. Being chosen is not just about dance skills but also reputation, character and a good standing in the B-Boy scene.
