WHAT IS AN ALL STYLE BATTLE?

Dancers trained in breakdance, krumping, waacking, popping, locking and hip hop come to our studio to compete for the title, respect and prize money.

 

This style of competition is very different to traditional dance competitions. Within this community, the emphasis of these competitions is for dancers to come together and gain respect from one another.

 

The essence of breakdance is quite different to many other styles of dance. Students learn the basic repertoire and how different moves connect together. From there, it is up to the individual dancer to create a style of dance best suited to their personality and skill (just like a brand). Each dancer gets to express themselves in a completely unique way. This promotes creative thinking, self discipline and respect. During a battle the intention is to gain respect for the work you have created. Many of these dancers watch and respect multiple styles of dance and then use those styles as an influence on their own work.

 

Dancers from around Adelaide and interstate meet together in our studio to cypher and compete. The energy is electric.

 

It is also important to note, in this community, drugs and alcohol are not permitted at battles and are frowned upon and not permitted.

During battles the intention

is to gain respect from your peers.

WHY BRING THIS STYLE OF BATTLE TO ROCKIT?

 

Director Noni Vassos undertook a lot of research into the break dance community before introducing it to Rockit.

 

Many people think it has negative connotations, but it couldn't be further than the truth.

 

This style of dance is an incredible way for young people to be positively involved in a physical activity that promotes humility, inclusion, respect and learning.

 

It also sees one generation proudly handing down a skill set to the next creating positive role models.

During the years Rockit has run its breakdance program and hosted King of the Hill, we have seen incredible transformations in our young students. Many have found positive role models to whom they look up to. Each year they see these role models compete and each one highlights what can be achieved when you are focused and work hard to achieve something.

This event is full of opportunities for younger dancers to be inspired and encouraged by the older dancers who are keen to see them develop. There is nothing better than seeing one of the older more professional dancers tao a younger one on the back and comment on how well they are doing. The smiles we see on our younger dancers faces are magic.

It was just a sea of humans loving other humans with… as you say…no drugs!!

 

I feel like buying real estate in Mount Barker right now, as I think you are helping it to be a really cruisy place in ten and twenty and thirty years time.
