Red Bull BC One Chicago Presents Cypher 2014 Breakdancing Competition

Categorized Under: free drinks No Commented

Remember in Zoolander where Derek and Hansel break dance fight? Since I saw that movie in 2001, I have been searching for an opportunity to see more hip hip dance battles, and that opportunity has finally arrived! This Saturday, June 7, at Union Station’s Great Hall (500w Jackson #107) Red Bull BC One will bring together 16 b-boys battling in one-on-one dance-offs called cyphers. These cyphers will eventually determine the who is the best dancer in the US North region. Then, in August, that winner will battle champions from other regions in Las Vegas where one talented b-boy will be hailed the Red Bull BC One World Champion. The qualifying event goes from 2-7p with the competition beginning at 4p. Admission is free and this event is open to the public. It sounds like the perfect opportunity to see a real life break dance fight! I hope to see you there!!
