Live from Amsterdam, Netherlands

Sixteen breakers from around the world will compete in the Final in a one-on-one battle format live at the Westergasfabriek in the heart of one of Europe’s most vibrant cities, Amsterdam. This is the first year that Amsterdam will host the event, with dancers from nine different countries hoping to take home the title of BC One World Champion.

The BC One World Championships features the best dancers in the world. One of the most notable competitors this year’s is Thias Lopez, aka b-boy Thesis, an American hailing from Seattle.

B-boy Thesis has been dancing since 1998 and has won titles across the world. Originally from Arizona, and now based in Seattle, Thesis is known for his alternating style freeze frame movements and threading with bursts of explosiveness and dynamic power. Thesis also documents his one-of-a-kind lifestyle to his 64k+ followers on Instagram.

Another notable competitor in this year’s competition is b-girl Ayumi. Ayumi is the first-ever female competitor in the BC One World Final. The 33-year-old is a kindergarten teacher in Japan by day, and hones her breaking skills outside of work. With dancing helping Ayumi become less timid in front of people across all aspects of her life, she is truly an inspiration to all.

One of the judges at this year’s competition is the world-famous Crazy Legs. Legs, who has been in the breaking scene since the 1980s, will bring his veteran eye and strong opinions to Amsterdam, judging the next generation of b-boys and helping determine the next BC One World Champion.
