EXAMPLES OF PAST WINNERS

HIP HOP

Here are examples of competitors at the 2018 IDO World Hop Hop Championships.  


These championships are straight Hip Hop (HH), Electric Boogie, and Breakdance.  Competition is done in battle form except the formations.

Examples of Hip Hop

Adult HH Group (not crew):  from Poland

Adult HH Formation:  from Slovenia

Junior HH Formation:  from UK

Adult Male HH battle:  Sidney MaCauley  from Germany

(in red/white shirt)  *not IDO footage, but it is an example of his dancing


WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

The Hip Hop Championships is straight up Hip Hop, Electric Boogie and Breakdancing. Everything is done in battle with organizers music except for the formations. 


The Streetdance Show uses Hip Hop to tell a story. Dancers use their own music for all routines.

Both competitions use elimination rounds and the winners are awarded on the podium. 

STREETDANCE SHOW

Canada took a team to the IDO Streetdance Show Championships last year for the first time.  Let by Leon Blackwood and Breanna Willis, the Canadians not only did well, but impressed the European officials in the process!  We are hoping to return to Czech Republic once again.  If we do not get enough dancers to compete in Hip Hop, we will ask if you will join us for Streetdance Show.  Hip Hop is important, but so is a story line in this genre.

Examples of Streetdance

Canadian Silver Medalist:  Alexis Lorette
