Massive Break Challenge supports over 70 youth from nearly 20 schools around Washington state to compete in mini-battles, leading up to the ultimate championship at the Bagley Wright Theater during the Folklife Festival on Saturday, May 23rd, from 3-5pm. Hundreds of people show up every year to witness the B-Boy and B-Girl break dancing students participate in this high-energy competition as they build community and challenge each other’s skills in front of a live audience. Both the mini-battles and the main event are free of charge for performers and audience members.
Mini battles start in February 2014, and once a month break crews from Seattle Public Schools match skills at The Beacon Studio in Seattle’s International District.
By supporting the Massive Break Challenge you will help us cover the venues cost, feature performances, supplies and transportation for youths from across the city to be able to attend & compete in the event! Special thanks to Northwest Folklife for offering free performance space for Massive Break Challenge during the Folklife Festival!
