All Style Sweet 16 Recap

So the first All Style Sweet 16 was an interesting experiment. Turn out was relatively low, but we expected that for a first time Friday event. With that being said, the dancers were AMAZING!!!

First round included some hype battles. Ben Vo, one of our favorites had a clean first round, but was not chosen by the judges to advance. Instead they chose Nicholas, a wild card or sorts with a New Jack Swing style. Needless to say, he was so much fun to watch, and had one of the best rounds of his night in this initial battle. Darylle vs Jess2sick was the starting battle, and did not disappoint. Both girls represented with a hip hop style, Jess coming away with the edge. Other highlights for the first round included Chris Nauta’s krumping, Andy Tiger Claw, Maho the Speck dancing her heart out, K-Yool, Knowbody, and Maezing coming out strong.

Throughout the night, dancers who exhibited a diversity of styles tended to make it further, but also dancers who stuck to their guns, and adjusted to the music also did well. Maezing and Knowbody matched up in the finals, it was one of the best match ups of the battle. In the end, Maezing came away with the win, with Knowboy in second. Also notable, Kuni Groovy Boogie also showed a diversity of styles, and killed it with the funk styles, came away with 3rd place followed by Nicholas in 4th.

On a side note, our second power king exhibition included some raw talent. James Cha and Matt Wong represented the new school, and threw some amazing initial rounds, but faltered in the second half. Khang, the defending champion, showed some weakness and did not stay as clean as his championship run. In the end, Fumi stuck to his guns, stayed clean, and came away with the win.

Results:
1st – Maezing
2nd – Knowbody
3rd – Groovy Boogie
4th – Nicholas
