Dancers from around the world head to London for UK B-Boy Championships World Finals

B-boys and their crews are bringing the heat at the World UK B-Boy Championships World Finals as they get their routines ready for a final showdown this weekend.

This year is also the 20th anniversary of the much-anticipated event hosted by hip hop legends Crazy Legs (Rock Steady Crew) and Afrika Islam (Universal Zulu Nation).

There is an array of international judges: Storm (Germany), Mouse (UK), Renegade (UK), Takeo (Japan), Buddha Stretch (USA), Lloyd (Netherlands), Clara (UK), Gemini (France) and Kapela (France).

Plus, two of London’s hottest grime artists, Ghetts and Rude Kid Music will be performing their array of solo and collaborative underground hits to the expected sell-out crowd. Both artists produced one of this year's sickest EP’s, the ‘Six, Five, Three’.

Reeps One will also be showcasing his ridiculous skills live on stage!

There will be a pre-qualifiers for dancers across London on Saturday and the finals will be held at O2 Forum Kentish Town. This year sees the first fully open crew qualifier on day one’s prelims on April 9.

The new move enables crews from all over the world a fair chance of competing.
