The world’s most prestigious breaking competition, Red Bull BC One, is set to find the country’s top B-boy and B-girl this April. Celebrating its 20 year legacy, the Red Bull BC One breaking competition is the longest running breaking competition in the world and has established global superstars in the world of breaking.
With breaking becoming an official Olympic sport at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, competitions like Red Bull BC One are more important now more than ever to establish the country’s top stars. Four qualifying cyphers will be taking place across the country this February and March culminating in the national final taking place in Cape Town on 24 April 2021. From there, the top B-boy and B-girl will represent South Africa at the Red Bull BC One world final later in the year.
Each qualifying cypher weekend will consist of two days with the first being a workshop featuring the country’s top breakers and the second being the qualifying cypher where the regional B-boy and B-girl will win their spot at the national final. The cypher weekends will be taking place in Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Oudtshoorn.
The four qualifying cypher and workshop weekends are:
- Johannesburg – 27 & 28 February 2021 – Constitution Hill
- Port Elizabeth – 06 & 07 March 2021 – Fairview Sports Centre
- Cape Town – 13 & 14 March 2021 – Joseph Stone Hall
- Oudtshoorn – 20 & 21 March 2021 – Toekomsrus Community Hall
