Hip Hop dancers meet in a supercharged atmosphere of exchange, confrontation and adrenaline. Hosted by an MC, powered by a DJ, and adjudicated by a jury, the battle consists of a series of competitions of solo dance, improvised according to strict guidelines.
To take part in the battle as a dancer, you must buy a general admission ticket and participate in the prelims on the same day from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. (at Esplanade de la Place des Arts)
