World Supremacy Battlegrounds Championship Gravitates Towards Global Success

For the eighth year running,  1,000 dancers, B Boys and crews, from twelve countries in Australasia and Oceania, will battle it out in Sydney in November to compete in the World Supremacy Battlegrounds–International Hip Hop Dance Championship–the biggest and most prestigious street dance event in the southern hemisphere.

World Supremacy Battlegrounds is an international street dance competition that attracts the premier dancers from Australasia and the Pacific and is the ultimate platform in showcasing the skills, creativity, talent and artistry of street dancers.

A sister event of the World Hip Hop International in the US, the World Supremacy Battlegrounds showcases the highest skill level of old and new schools in hip-hop styles including popping, locking, b boying, clowing and krumping, in a display of creativity, innovation, strength and finesse.  It will be the most electrifying and thrilling display of hip hop in Australia this year.

The World Supremacy Battlegrounds is the only competition of its kind in Australia that attracts international attention and participation. World Supremacy Battlegrounds is at the forefront in recognising the free expression and individualism of the R&B/hip-hop dance culture.  It is a bold initiative towards gaining recognition and assimilating hip-hop into mainstream youth culture.

The Philippines will be represented by seven teams that are vying for the elusive gold.  The last time the Philippines won gold was in 2009, when the country’s sole representative AMPLIFIED (from Baguio City) came in as an underdog and won gold in the Open Division.  This time the Philippines will send in their biggest delegation, which includes current national champions Unschooled Movement, last year’s national champions Next To Innocence, Infidifalo, Avengers, Bacboyz, Boyz Unlimited and Flipendemic Kru.  This is by far the strongest RP team in history.
