Northwest Sweet 16

The Northwest Sweet 16 is Outshine’s premiere event. 16 b-boys/b-girls are chosen from the Northwest to represent either their region or their crew. They are chosen based on competitions they have won, how strong they have been representing at battles, and how much promise they have shown throughout the year. We have been fortunate enough to have worked with pretty much every crew in the Northwest, and would like to thank all the dancers who have supported the event throughout the years.

Sweet 16 rules:
-5 judges
-no judges can judge their own crew
-2 rounds per battle, b-boy who goes first gets the choice of a 3rd
-finals are 3 rounds per b-boy with a choice of a 4th

Northwest Sweet 16 – 2018 – Recap

Thanks again to everyone who made this year’s Sweet 16 happen. As always, it was a crazy night with upsets, bracket busters, great dancing, funny moments, and incredible feats of athleticism. Our highlights included watching many new faces blow it up in the Sweet 16. SoFarin, Curt, Kulani, Motorman, and a bunch of other rookies made the event one for the books. Other highlights included Juse Boogie’s epic headslide in the mini comp, Boxcutta’s super crew taking the W in the b-boy crew competition, and Curt putting the hurt on everyone in the Sweet 16 bracket. Winners below, footage coming soon!
