Confirmed Great 8 Crews for 2014
SHAKE STYLES (Spain)
SOUL MAVERICKS (United Kingdom)
The past weekend we’ve been over in Wales to participate at the Floor Wars qualifier for the United Kingdom.
This was the third time we had a UK qualifier, the first one was in London and this was the second time that the city of Newport was hosting the event. About 30 crews had signed up in advance for the eve
nt and so the interest was clearly there to get over to the finals.
The last years we’ve also seen that the overall level of b-boying had raised and so there were a couple of good and intense battles up to the finals.
Worth to notice was also that the amount of b-girls at the event had been quiet high in comparison to other places and so we’ve also seen a all b-girl crew in the semi-finals, getting very close to going all the way. Just as in the first year, Soul Mavericks met their team-mates in the finals and from that point it was a question of experience. So we are happy to see Soul Mavericks coming back out with a strong crew to represent the UK in the finals in Copenhagen, march the 15th 2014! They have set a high bar for them self and are ready to make some trouble between the finalists. So watch out, the UK is coming in strong.
On November 16, the qualification for all UK crews will take place in Newport, Wales. Check International Eliminations for more info….
We’re getting close to that time of the year where eliminations for Floor Wars go down in countries across the world. First up is the UK Qualification in November, followed by France and Italy in January. Eliminations in other countries are in the making – check the International Eliminations section for details and updates….
Two weeks ago, the first ever spanish qualification for Floor Wars went down in Barcelona. Winners were Shake Styles, who defeated Lunaticks in the final, and will represent in Denmark in 2014. Check out the final battle below…
We are excited about being here for 9 years in the row with growing number of participants and internationals qualifiers.
This year we will have more then 60 crews competing in the 3v3, over 50 dancers have signed up for the Footwork battles and more then 32 crews are in the 2vs2 Toprock battles. Floor Wars is a truly international event with dancers coming from over 30 different countries from all corners of the world to share a common passion. It is a special accommodation of energy that surrounds these events and even thou the battles are serious business it is all within good meaning. This is also what keeps us doing what we do, and tonight is the time for the 2013 edition which we are looking forward to celebrate with you.
Note to all b-boys, b-girls and crews: Please make sure to go straight to the Registration desk at arrival to the venue. If you haven’t confirmed your registration you won’t be announced. Also note that that we DO NOT have last minute sign up’s a earlier announced.
As we have for the first time a 2vs2 Toprock battle at Floor Wars and this giving new opportunities like commandos and routines.
We thought of sharing the judging rules with you guys in advance for better transparency and common understanding.
We have as earlier announced a cap on 32 crews, the first round will be one move by each dancer – no routines or commands in the initial rounds. The judges pick the 16 top crews, which leads to the first round of the battles again consisting of one solo per dancer. From the second round on you can add commands and routines, thou max 2 per battle.
We are looking forward to this years edition, and hope you’re ready to Rock the floor.
