Hip Hop Freestyle

As the original Breaking craze died out in New York and the style of Rap music changed, a new dance style arose in the clubs: hip hop freestyle. Like other forms of street dance, this was heavily influenced by the music coming out at the time. 'The cabbage Patch’ for example, is linked to the song of the same name by the Gucci Crew, which described the moves. The present day urban music has influenced the current crop of sick Hip-Hop Freestylers bringing a increasingly abstract flavour to the dance but executed with breathtaking musicality.

House Dancers

One of the more recent forms of street dance, House Dance originated in the post disco era in the clubs in both New York and Chicago. The dance style is heavily social, with the emphasis on freestyling and vining to the music played by the DJ. We feature the 2 on 2 House Dance battle. Pairs ‘face-off’ against each other featuring routines as well as solos. The newest category at the Champs, last year brought an amazing International line-up together and showcased some amazing battles!
