Queen Sweet 16 was yet another great demonstration of what b-girls from around the world have to offer. The night was amazing, with Nagisa Kohagura from Japan taking first place, with Evil Évil Eve from Germany as runner up. Loopi Wein taking third over Kareen Wong. The 4 vs 4 open bracket final was dope, with Underground Flave with 1st, and Fresh Descendents running up.

Other notables for the night included Bryan Fishy Nguyen killing it as usual. Felipe from Sacremento showing some crazy moves, Eren’s b-girl character shining, Thias Lopez smashing as usual. Matthew Thao showing the Northwest some Flexible Flave style, and Brendan Uomoto and Sam Niver also coming through strong for the final battle.

The awesome people at the Chinatown International District invited us to create a battle for their Night Market. We’ve worked with them in the past and have had nothing but good experiences, so we gladly accepted. The concept is simple; invite 8 deserving crews from the Northwest, and pit them against each other for cash and prizes. 2013 will be our first year with this concept, and we hope to make it an ongoing event.

The event is free, please come and enjoy the dancing, and stay for the food.
