In Studio Today: HandBrakeTurn Crew

The Morning Cruise

HandBreakTurn crew, one of 16 of SA's best B-boy crews, will battle it out at the Red Bull BC One SA Cypher on July 7th at Club Fever in Landsdowne. The winner will travel to Morocco to compete in the regional qualifier. HandBreakTurn crew members, Dimitri Nell and Brandon Peterson, joined The Morning Cruise to discuss the event and exhibit their Bboy skills.

 Red Bull BC One:

is an annual international b-boy competition organized by the energy drink company Red Bull. It is an individual (or 'one on one')b-boy competition (as opposed to a crew competition). The main event is a knockout tournament featuring sixteen b-boys, chosen for exceptional skills in the dance and good character, competing in one-on-one battles decided by a panel of five judges. 2007 was the only year in which the sixteen competitors were chosen systematically, via worldwide regional knockout tournaments, along with the prior year's top finishers as well as wild card selections.

The event has been held in a different city and country every year. In 2004 it was held in Biel, Switzerland, 2005 in Berlin, Germany, 2006 in S√£o Paulo, Brazil, 2007 in Johannesburg, South Africa, 2008 in Paris, France, 2009 in New York City, USA, 2010 in Tokyo, Japan, 2011 in Moscow, Russia. It is announced that the 2012 competition will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
