This year on May 25th, The Dance will be performing in Zurich’s Hallenstadion for the third time.
The world’s best urban street dance crews will be competing to win the championship.
Street dance became popular in the United States during 1970s among young people in Bronx. The movement soon get a name of B-boying or breaking, also known as breakdancing. Its reputation of freedom in expression and improvisation quickly expanded around the world, creating a powerful community of those, who feel the rhythm and beat in the same way. Although I have tried and love breaking, I prefer to watch a good performance by professionals rather than dancing it myself.
The dance 2018 presents 10 Crews, 7 Judges, 2 Hosts, 2 DJ’s & 1 Special Act.
The stars of the event are ten international urban dance crews, the best of the best in the national and international ratings. The crews will be judged by a top-class jury.
