Get ready folks. The Northwest Sweet 16 is back. Returning to its home at Washington Hall, 2017 will mark the 10 year anniversary of the Northwest Sweet 16. More info coming soon, check out the 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.

Big ups to Dance Broomz/Red Eye Jedi for winning the crew comp, and Hoodz for taking second. Peep the finals below!
Well, after much confusion on dates and venues, we have locked it down. This will be our 9th Northwest Sweet 16, and what a year it’s shaping up to be. We have new and old coming back into the bracket to prove their steez, plus out of state competitors to spice things up. New this year, was a prelim in the Southeast, put on by Frantic Chef from Dynamic Rockers. The winner of that competition was Stedlove from Mighty Zulu Kings. He will be the first out of region b-boy to compete in the NW Sweet 16 and we are all very excited to see how our b-boys stack up.
This year will also feature a 3v3 b-boy competition for $600 cash and prizes. Our venue and event information is all available on our event page HERE. Check it out, and be sure to buy presale tickets when they become available because this year will sell out.
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!
It’s going down today!!! European B-girls have been arriving all weekend and we will soon see what they bring to the floor. Big ups to Loopi and Evil Eve who have worked extremely hard to make this happen. Footage and pics coming soon!
