Youth need a safe place to cultivate their skills without being overshadowed by adults at a typical breaking battle. YBL was created to enhance that need and allow young bboys/bgirls more time to workout their skills in order to attend battles with confidence. The Youth Breaking League is designed for the next generation to develop their skills faster and show them off more frequently.
4 Weeks of Breaking
Each season will consist of 4 weekends set aside for breaking! There are 3 competition days for each division, and 1 championship day. In order to be great, we must provide consistency so dancers can perform their skills week after week.
Since the league season spans over multiple weekends, each dancer will be able to face every opponent multiple times over the course of the season. Each dancer will get to battle 9-12 times over the course of the season.
The dancers will be judged on a scoring system that will hold them accountable to all of the things that matter in a breaking battle: style, musicality, technique, execution, and overall approach.
Every judge must be certified in the Youth Breaking League scoring system. They will be trained in how to appropriately critique and provide feedback for the competitors.
A record of wins and losses will always be made available online. Each dancer will be ranked according to their battle record.
Appropriate Age divisions
Dancers will battle in their respective age level. Dancers that win their division have the opportunity to advance up, during the following season.
