Swirling their way to glory

B-BOY BATTLE

Reality Check’, a b-boy battle, was held at the Max Mueller Bhavan recently and judged by the popular German b-boy AirDit.

The event saw talented youngsters from all across the City giving solo as well as group performances.

The battle saw some amazing stunts like handstands, headstands and swirls and the top 16 were chosen from the participants.

Each participant gave his best to get selected in the first slot, which consisted of two rounds where the participants battled it out on their own against each other.

The second segment saw them compete with each other in groups.

Though more boys took part in the competition, there were a couple of girls too who stole the show with their confidence and stunts.AirDit gave the participants some important inputs.

 “I want everyone to enjoy themselves while dancing. Smile and don’t look down while performing,” he advised. The show saw some funky steps and confident moves by the performers as they tried to outdo each other.  The dancers stole the show with their energy. Apart from performing various stunts and moves, they were also interactive and encouraged the audience to clap along.

Arjun, one of the participants, said that he was very excited to perform at the show.
“Many good dancers have come today and the competition is tough. But I am going to put my best foot forward. All of us have our own styles and there is a lot of variety here today,” he says.

For many, it was the best way to get noticed and trained from a big name in the hip-hop world.

The audience was excited to see their friends and favourites perform and encouraged them.

Karthik was cheering for his friends and having a great time. “Only when we come to forums like this, we get to see the kind of talent that exists in the City. Hip-hop is a very popular genre of dance and more people today are interested in it as it gives you the creative freedom to explore and innovate.

It is not very rigid and hence, very entertaining. Some of the stunts performed here were mind-boggling and the participants did them with so much ease,” he noted.
