It Is About The Youth 05/12/2017

B-Boy Renegade | BfG Judge @ Little Shao

The third of the Continental Qualifiers is history, the contingent of dancers representing countries in Asia and Oceania at the 2018 World Youth Breaking in Kawasaki, JPN, has been announced - and all results will be published today!

Maybe the most appropriate summary of this event was made by one of the senior members of the judging panel. By someone who's seen and done it all during a breaking career that doubles the age of the b-boys and b-girls competing in Taiepi City, TPE.

This is what Kev James, aka B-Boy Renegade, posted on his Facebook page.

Damn! Third and final Continental Qualifier for the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games done and dusted. Back in 1982/3, when I got into this, there was no way I could have imagined this happening, much less being part of the process. The judging system is up and running. Working superbly.

This was by far the most interesting one for me. Meeting kids from Nepal, Mongolia, Bhutan, Myanmar...

I mean, who even knew these places had scenes? A few have only ever seen breaking online. They have never left their country, much less been to a jam and connected with so many like-minded individuals. Imagine being the first person in your family to leave your country. For dancing!
On top of that they get to meet a few of our shining stars: Storm, Mounir, AT, Bootuz, Narumi, Skim, Katsu, Kid Colombia, Vero, Lussy Sky ...

They are a mixture of innocence, nerves and excitement. It is, and always has been about the youth.
