Have you ever found yourself wishing that dance were an Olympic sport? If so, August 11 is going to be your lucky day: that’s when the 12th annual World Hip Hop Dance Championship hits Las Vegas for an exciting, jam-packed schedule of competition and performances!
40 countries—everywhere from Argentina to Japan—are sending crews of 5 to 8 dancers to compete in the Youth, Varsity and Adult Divisions, along with MegaCrews of up to 40 members. Each crew of National champions will first battle its way through three days of elimination rounds at Las Vegas’ Red Rock Resort. Then, the top crews will face off at Orleans Arena for gold medals and the ultimate bragging rights.
Competition may be the main event at the World Hip Hop Dance Championship, but there’ll be plenty of other cool stuff going on, too. Winners of this year’s World Battles (for individual b-boys, poppers, lockers and all other stylers) will also be on the scene, and a soon-to-be-announced celebrity will be presented with the Living Legend of Hip Hop Award. Plus, Cirque du Soleil is slated to perform!
