WEAREKREATIV PRESENTS:
APRIL BATTLE 2/4/2022


WEAREKREATIV's first ever April Battle will be held on Saturday 2/4 at "The Studios", located in Espoo, Niittykumpu (address: Kappelikuja 6 D, 02200 Espoo). The doors will open at 14:45 and the first battle preselection will start at 15:30.

We would like to welcome you to join us for a Saturday filled with dancing! The night will include inspiring battles, laid-back cyphering and good music - that can also be enjoyed only as a spectator, if you wish! We will have two different Hip Hop 1 vs 1- battles, one for 10-16-year-olds and one for 17-year-olds and older. We will battle from top 16 battles onwards in both categories. Starting from top 8 the battle categories will be united into one Hip Hop 2 vs 2 category, where the battles will proceed with pairs drawn from the hat! You do not want to miss this! 

By attending the April Battles you will also be joining us in doing some good, because 50 % of the ticket sales will be donated to Hope - Yhdessä ja Yhteisesti ry, a non-profit organization that works for a future where all children in Finland would have equal opportunities for a good day-to-day life.

The event is organized according to safer space guidelines and there is therefore absolutely no room for any form of discrimination, harassment, racism or bullying. Read more about our safer space policies here (in Finnish).


TIME: Saturday 2/4 at 15:30-20:00 (doors open at 14:45)
CATEGORIES:
Hip Hop 1 vs 1 youths (10-16-year-olds)
Hip Hop 1 vs 1 adults (17-year-olds and older)

From the top 8 battles onwards the dancers will be paired up with a dancer from the other age group and from here, the night will continue as one combined Hip Hop 2 vs 2 battle.
