WSB to Launch New Zealand National Championship in June

Get ready for the deft-defying stunts, jaw-dropping flips, slick old school and new school dance moves and Polynesian swagger with the return of Battlegrounds in New Zealand. Auckland City will host the Battlegrounds New Zealand National Championship on June 28 at Westlake Boys High School.

Under new management, Battlegrounds New Zealand will showcase an array of activities including inspirational talks from renowned choreographers, a panel of international and local dance judges, merchandise stalls, live DJ music and Urbanstar talent showcase. The main event will feature various group divisions, including Junior, Varsity, Open, Monster Crew and Old School categories. All dancers and artists from across New Zealand are invited to register for the national championship. Cash, gold trophies and exclusive dance workshops are up for grabs.

All roads lead to the World Supremacy Battlegrounds in Melbourne, Australia in October. Register online today by visiting www.worldsupremacybattlegrounds.com

Battlegrounds New Zealand is the brainchild of hip-hop impresario and WSB founder Marco Selorio and is proudly supported by Yvents, VA Kreativ, Street Level Inc., and the newly formed DANZ (Dance Australia New Zealand) Alliance.
