We will once again be hosted the All Style Sweet 16 at the Chinatown/ID Night Market this year. It will be our third year hosting at this marvelous event and needless to say, we have an amazing lineup!!! Check out our event page HERE to see the lineup and details for the show.
It was an honor to see some of the most talented b-boys in the world get down against each other. The final battle for the Sweet 16 Championship was between Milhouse from Drifters Crew, Korea and Yosh from Gun Smoke Breakers, Japan.
This year will mark our first year of the Sweet 16 Championship. A combination of winners from the Sweet 16s we have around the country and world, and invites for premiere b-boys/b-girls from around the world.

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.

First off want to say thanks to Abe, Rien New Ly, Matt Matthew Thao, Erik Chung, Andrew Oledan, Lam Nguyen, the Soul Incredible Unity team, and the Flex Flav Family for helping to make this one happen. Congrats to the following peeps for their hard work and victories:

3v3 Crew Final: Breakadelics, Sweden
runner up: Break the Flav, Italy

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.
Big ups to Just Him Productions for this recap:
