It's been a long awaited event!
Elements is back and you can be a part of Hip Hop history on Guam!!
Hip Hop Dance Defined (from Hip Hop International):
There is no one definition to describe hip-hop dance. Hip-hop dance is a fusion of street dance disciplines and cultural interpretations from around the world. A hip-hop dance routine incorporates the look, music, attitude, posture and street dance style to make it uniquely hip-hop. The most real routines showcase a variety of hip-hop dance styles, signature moves and choreography conveying the character and energy of the street.
There are 2 Categories:
Hip Hop Dance Crews should consist of 5 to 8 members (Dance Routine /Choreographed)
BBoys and BGirls should be groups of 3 to 5 (Freestyle Popping, Locking, Breaking)
Ages are limited from 10 to 21
Note: If there are enough registering adult crews, we will divide the battles between youth and adults
Due to the limited number of dancers on island, a participant can join in 1 crew in each category. For example, Bboy Legz can battle with 2 others in the Freestyle battle and be a part of the Rocksteady Dance Crew of 8.
Performance will be 60% of overall score and Skill will be 40% of overall score
20% for Creativity, Showmanship, Presence
20% for Execution, Spacing, Form
20% Entertainment Value Crowd Appeal
20% Musicality, Synchronization
20% Degree of Difficulty
