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!

The weekend was full of good vibes, incredible talent, and fun times. Some of the things I will remember for years to come include Will proposing to his now fiance, the crew semi finals and finals, Munch trying to cheat in the headspin competition, all the Japanese all style dancers, the first round of Sweet 16 battles, Trix and his insane ability to keep the crowd live, Fish Boogie and the rest of the Djs spinning heat, North America vs Europe exhibition, and Maurizio’s workshop. Thanks to everyone else that I have forgottent to mention, and for everyone that came and helped make this event a success.

The Northwest Sweet 16/Back to the Culture 2015 Recap

So, the weekend is over, and boy what a weekend. We were very disappointed in the turnout for the event. This was probably our lowest turnout in the 8 years we’ve thrown this jam, but we’ve never tried to go head up against the Seattle summer, so shame on us. With that said, it was the best jam we’ve done as far as talent goes. A truly international jam with b-boys from Sweden, Italy, Columbia, Russia, California, and Japan. Awesome to see the cultures combine.

I’m sure you’d like to know the results, they are as follows:

Northwest Sweet 16 2015 Champ: Jbugz, Soul Felons, Vancouver BC
Runner up: Buckshot, Unleashed, Seattle WA

Crew Competition Champions: Massive Monkees, Seattle WA
Crew Competition Runner Up: Breakadelics, Sweden

All Style Crew Champions: Fly Girls, Canada
All Style Crew Runner Up: Hoshito International, Japan/Italy/Sacramento

Highlights for us included Jbugz vs Buckshot in the finals, super sick to see a clash of the new school and old school NW b-boys. Massive Monkess battling Sweden was one of the best battles I’ve seen period. Fly Girls were incredibly prepared. Their routines would have smashed on any crew that we’ve had in the past.

Footage to come soon, we will populate as soon as we can:
