In the interest of sharing Winnipeg’s b-boy culture with a greater audience, we initiated the BREAKIN’ TO SPRING 2-on-2 in March with Portage Place Shopping Centre.

The winner of BREAKIN’ TO SPRING was none other than B-Boy Seven and B-Boy Arnski (representing DANGEROUS GOODS COLLECTIVE).

This display of local b-boy/b-girl talent was so spectacular and the response was so phenomenal, we were asked to return with…

Big up to SDC for the crazy dope showcases this weekend. They really turned that mutha out and earned the right to be called Winnipeg’s Best Dance Crew. Big up SDC creative director Wayne Santos for such an excellent showing and of course, a shout to the entire team: Karen Nacario, Kris Basco, Christine Palileo, Vanessa Dela Rosa, Peter Ruiz, Mark Domingo, Casey Simbulan and Glen Bonifacio.

It was a pleasure to be able to watch y’all go buck, trust. We know it’s a good look to have you open for the JABBAWOCKEEZ on Mon, Jul 21 @ Blush Ultraclub!

Gotta give it up to the runner-up, DUMMY SQUAD, still. They repped the name tight with dope and entertaining performances and because they were that tight, we have added them to the bill to open for IVANA SANTILLI…an exclusive & rare DJ set on Friday, Aug 1 @ The Academy.

DUMMY SQUAD

Can’t sleep on SYNERGY DANCE PRODUCTION, RanDoM DANCE PRODUCTION and UN1TE DANCE, either, yo. All in all, all five teams are giving Winnipeg straight quality. Look forward to working with everyone!

Extra special shouts to QBC and BIG DIFFERENCE CREW for being troopers and submitting the four 2-on-2 teams for the B-Boy/B-Girl category: KRUMP KINGS, TRUE FUSCHNICKS, GIT TA STEPPIN and the winners: KILLAPINO!

Finally, a big thanks to Mark Seto and DTP, our sponsors SHOPGIRL and THE MASSES CLOTHING COMPANY (JESSE SANTOS and JASON AU) and to the judges panel: BOOBJESTER (Dangerous Goods Collective), DAMMECIA HALL (Define Movement) and CYRILE ONG (Shopgirl)!

Breakin’ to Spring FAQ

What is the competition format?

Breakin’ to Spring will be a single round-robin tournament. Each duo will be assigned a number and will be paired off against another duo. This will be done once registration has closed. After the first round, the duo that is assigned the number 1 will be fixed while all the others will rotate clockwise. If there is an odd number of entries, one duo will be given a bye into the tournament. One entry will be automatically entered into the tournament via entries submitted to HOT103FM.

How will the tournament be judged?

Adjudication will be determined by a three-person panel – chosen for their knowledge of b-boy culture – for the preliminary rounds. The panel will educate the audience on what they are looking for in terms of style, originality and showmanship. With that knowledge, the final rounds will be decided by the audience. Due to time constraints, ties will not be allowed.

What will the prizes be?

Prizes – to be provided by Portage Place, Athlete’s World, Urban Planet and HMV – will be announced shortly.

How do you register?

To register for Breakin’ to Spring, submit your individual names (including the name of your 2-on-2 duo), contact info, crew affiliations and a hi-res (300 dpi) .jpg of your duo to battle@bundown.com.

How long do you have to register?

Entries will be accepted until 12:00 midnight, Friday, March 28.
