The DanceSport SA WDSF Breaking for Gold South Africa 2021 event has been concluded!!
A historic first for South Africa, that saw more than 60 participants from around country submit their video entries for the online event.
 
Under highly challenging and far from ideal circumstances, we have managed to adjudicate and select the best Bboys and Bgirls to represent our country at the WDSF World Breaking Championships in Paris, France in December 2021.
 
Our judges selected the top 16 in the BBoy category; Top 4 in the BGirl category and BGirl U/16 category; and Top 2 in the BBoy U/16 category. These breakers went head to head in online battles before we found our winners.
