Movin' and groovin' in Meeting House Square with the Top 8 Street Dance Battle

The Top 8 Street Dance Battle celebrated its 5th year in true street dance style with electric energy, pumping beats and jaw-dropping moves in Meeting House Square on Sunday, 5 May 2019.

Meeting House Square was buzzing all afternoon as some of the most talented street dancers from across the country and overseas stepped up to the dance floor to do battle.

Friends and family cheered as the competitive heats took place, building in energy and intensity as the afternoon went on. With the top 8 competitors having been selected, excited members of the public lucky enough to nab a ticket streamed into Meeting House Square to witness the final battles. 

Graffiti artists added a splash of colour to the venue and live DJs hit the decks to pump out the tunes and get the final battle started. 


The crowds cheered as the remaining competitors fought it out for the top spot in Poppin', Hip-Hop and Krump, and the audience was also treated to showcases by international street dance legends including Rayboom, Mechanikool, Cyborg and Red Bull Dance Connect Star, WING.
