Red Bull BC One Cyphers are coming to Auckland on the 25th of May and Wellington 26th of May where B-Boys and B-Girls will have the opportunity to show their skills in the open call Cypher.
Red Bull BC One Cypher is a B-Boy duel, which gives two New Zealanders the chance to battle their way onto the Red Bull BC One Asia Pacific Qualifier stage in September, with the ultimate goal of being named World B-Boy Champion at the final in Rio de Janeiro!
The B-Boys will be judged in the art of Break Dancing by New Zealand B-Boy pioneers; Douglas ‘Swervone’ Wright, Robert ‘Mayhem’ Ramsey and Sen ‘Khmer’ Thong. Each B-Boy will have the chance to show the judges their moves in an open florr Cypher, before a top 16 is decided upon. From here the 16 will compete in 1-on-1 knock out rounds, where they will have to show the judges 3 solos per battle to the beats DJ Spell spins for them.
The champion from each Cypher in Auckland and Wellington wins the right to one of the 16 spots available at the BC One Asia Pacific Qualifier. Here they will represent New Zealand in the next level of the competition where they will battle fellow B-Boys from Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, South Asia, Laos and Vietnam in an attempt to reach the World Final, which will be held in December 2012.
