We are happy to announce the continuation of the Northwest Sweet 16 into the 11th year. This year will mark a change in the structure of the competition. In order to make the process more decentralized, more than half of the competitors will be sourced from prelims. We believe this will make the choices less political, as our board members will have less choice on who competes in the final. Prelims will take place in Vancouver, Seattle, Eastern Washington, Portland, and Alaska. With the exception of Alaska, each prelim will have an invited 8 bracket, in which the winner will represent at the finals, and an open 1v1 bracket for anyone to enter, in which the winner will represent at the finals. Event page HERE.
We will once again be hosted the All Style Sweet 16 at the Chinatown/ID Night Market this year. It will be our third year hosting at this marvelous event and needless to say, we have an amazing lineup!!! Check out our event page HERE to see the lineup and details for the show.
This year will mark our first year of the Sweet 16 Championship. A combination of winners from the Sweet 16s we have around the country and world, and invites for premiere b-boys/b-girls from around the world. For details and sign ups, please visit our Facebook page here. For details visit our event page here.
Queen Sweet 16 this year was another huge success thanks to Loopi Wein and Evil Eve. Once again held at the Family Fever Festival, it hosted a 3v3 b-boy/b-girl open crew competition (two adults and one youth) and held several prelims across Europe for the Queen Sweet 16. With new and old faces, the competition couldn’t defeat last years champions; Paulina from Poland and Bo from Netherlands. Bo, sticking to her plan from last year, stayed extremely clean with complicated footwork combinations and beat hitting skills. In the end, Paulina’s format remained champion, with high difficulty moves, clean sets, and original combinations, all set to the music.
Other favorites included Fairytale, once again blowing it up with some crazy power moves, and Messymel with an incredible amount of style and flow. Check out footage from the competition below.
Also big congratulations to Wizkid, Vegas, and Cedric for taking the Family Fever Festival 3v3.

Queen Sweet 16 European Edition was amazing! First off wanted to give a big shout out to our partners in crime, Evil Eve and Loopi. They did a wonderful job organizing, promoting, and putting the entire thing together. We are glad to have worked with such amazing individuals. Now, if you didn’t have the pleasure of being present at the event, here is what you missed. First round, Tera vs Fairytale was a power throwdown. Both next gen b-girls went at it like there was no tomorrow. Bo was consistently hitting the floor with incredibly detailed footwork that was extremely fun to watch. Overall, the talent level of b-girls from Europe was high, and watching the different styles from a slew of different countries was fun, to say the least. In the end, Paulina from Poland was our first official QS16 European Edition champion. She was able to find the difficult balance of difficulty, execution, and foundation to edge out the competition. Many thanks to everyone who participated and supported. Check out all the footage below!
