Queen Sweet 16 – 2016 Recap

IMG_0229

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 2015 Recap

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!

Event Preview for 2015

Hey everyone, we’ve taken some time off for the last couple of months to gather our bizniss. Here is what 2015 is looking like for Outshine Productions:

June 25-28, Northwest Sweet 16/Back to the Culture, back to back events in Seattle Washington. This will be our classic NW Sweet 16 battle, combined with our first International jam with crews from as far as Russia.

July 11th, Southwest Sweet 16 in Sacremento. This jam was getting so big on Facebook, one of our competitors flagged it because they were so scared, lol (they really did). Seriously though, SW will bring together the illest b-boys from Cali, Mexico, Nevada, Utah, and more.

Summer 2015, Northeast Sweet 16 in New York City. The homie Kid Glyde will be partnering with us for the return of the NE Sweet 16. Last year he brought the dopest underground talent through to battle it out in the Mecca, now that it’s established there, nothing will keep 2015’s chapter from bringing the heat.
