With the winners automatically qualifying to represent Spain in the World Hip Hop Championship Finals taking place in Las Vegas this August, it’s all to play (or rather to dance) for at Spain’s national hip hop competition. Hip Hop International was founded in 2000 in Los Angeles by the same company that produces many major events in the States, including MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, and has inspired the hugely popular film franchise, Step Up. Hip hop combines image, posture and hip-hop music with a whole lot of attitude. Becoming popular over the last 30-40 years, hip hop is a form of street dance that involves ‘breaking’, ‘locking’ and ‘popping’.
This 10-hour event will see more than 1,000 dancers competing for various prizes, including cash, dance scholarships and qualification for the World Championships in Las Vegas. There will be a range of categories for all ages and group sizes, as well as individual dancers battling it out. Whether you want to bust some moves up on the stage, or would rather toe-tap as a member of the live audience, don’t miss one of Spain’s biggest dance events of the year.
Tickets are available from €22.80. More information here.
