One December 3, 2016, 16 of the best B-Boys in the world will compete in a head to head competition to see who will be crowned the world champion of their craft. If you want to see bodies contort, glide and defy gravity, will will NOT want to miss the live-stream of The Red Bull BC One World Finals in Nagoya, Japan. Viewers will be provided with an all-access view into the dancer’s styles and choreography as they push the limits of breaking.
Red Bull TV will broadcast the head-to-head knockout battles and Blurred Culture would like to throw our support behind two of the competitors who will be repping the U.S. of A.: Victor Montalvo (the defending champion) and BenStacks. Let’s preview who these gents are and what they bring to the table.
During last year’s road to the finals, Victor and BenStacks matched up to break for the guarantee to represent the U.S.A. in the 2015 finals.
Hailing from Las Vegas, Benstacks dance style is explosive, but controlled, mixing B-Boy foundation with innovative movements inspired by all art forms. His signature moves include low, animal-style transitions and double aerials. He is a dancer in the Jabbawockeez and teaches advanced workshops for B-Boys and B-Girls.
“I want B-Boys to be more respected as true artists. My family has been supportive of my dancing once they saw my determination. I lost my mom […] to cancer but she was so proud of all my success and all the work I put in. She always told me to thank God that I am able to dance, and every time I dance, I do just that.” – Benstacks
Victor Montalvo is from Orlando, Florida and his style is fun, free, and energetic. He combines what he calls “blow-ups” and “POW” moves to create a wow factor in his dance. He typically executes small, planned moves to start off with, then breaks into a larger, more eventful freestyle dance for the rest of his battles. He belieives that humility is the key to being a good B-Boy.
“[A good dancer should] be humble, always keep learning and always think like a a student. There’s no room for jealousy, or ego. Just do and worry about you. Be positive.”
Watch Victor and BenStacks and the 14 other competitors dance for their lives. It will definitely be a sight to behold
