KING OF THE HILL

ALLSTYLE BATTLE

This is Rockit's annual major youth event supported by the Mount Barker District Council.

 

A youth dance battle welcoming the states leading street dancers and role models

into our studio to inspire our young people.

 

Sponsored by:

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.
