Red Bull BC One Cypher South USA
Aug 6, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - Aug 7, 2022 @ 9:00 pm$10
The biggest and most prestigious one-on-one breaking competition in the world, Red Bull BC One, is returning to the U.S. for a series of regional qualifiers including its first-ever stop in Austin, Texas on August 6-7.
Today’s most elite competitive and accomplished breakers (‘b-boys’ and ‘b-girls’) in the country will soon visit the Lone Star State to compete in a knockout bracket-style tournament in order to secure their spot in the USA Championship in Los Angeles with the hope of eventually representing their home country at the 2022 Red Bull BC One World Finals in New York City later this winter.
Although Red Bull BC One Cyphers is an international event set to include thousands of breakers, the main competition on Sunday will feature around 32 dancers from Texas and far beyond, chosen for their elite breaking ability per group.
Judges include award-winning and multi-World Champion B-Boys and Red Bull dancers – RoxRite and Lilou. Houston-native and founder of B-Girl City, one of the first-ever formalized collectives of female breakers in the US and the very first group of its kind in Texas, B-Girl BabyGirl will also serve as guest judge.
On Saturday afternoon from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. at 3TEN, Red Bull is also hosting an open-entry competition for aspiring breakers as they seek to earn 1 of 4 open slots to compete on Sunday, as well as a series of free workshops and community panels led by members of the Red Bull BC One All Stars dance crew as they teach the basics of break dancing.
Come celebrate the art and athleticism of breaking while getting a glimpse into its future as an Olympic sport in 2024.
