Nord2Nord Grand Final

On May 4, 2018

Nord2Nord Grand Final in St. Petersburg 

Dear friends! Nord2Nord Grand Final Festival has blown up the whole city on the 5th and 6th of May 2018! That was a real blast with more than 300 participants and around 200 visitors.

We had a fantastic line up of the judges with Tommy Invalido, Messy Mel and Carlito coming all the way from Sweden to decide on the best crew, the best Bonnie and Clyde breaking couple and Solo dancers. As the result of the battles that took the whole day on Sunday we have Dvizh club, Bboy Warrior and Bgirl Art, and Bboy Cooper going all the way to Sweden for a whole week to take part in an international Hip Hip Camp Breaking Flows in Norrköping.

Well, not only the adults had fun! On Saturday the younger generation had a chance to take three master classes from our Swedish guests and then compete with each other to be accepted into the line up for Sunday and to challenge more experienced Bboys and Bgirls on the dance floor.
