Red Bull BC One B-Boying Competition Hits Boston on September 1st!
On Saturday, September 1st, the top B-Boys and B-Girls in the US will come together to compete in the highly anticipated BC One Cypher Boston 2018 competition.
Breakers will be competing in a local qualifier to identify the top 16 breakers who will move on to the official competition that night, where they will battle head-to-head in intense match up’s.
Ultimately the winner of the Red Bull BC One Cypher in Boston will be flown to the Last Chance Cypher in Zürich, taking place on September 27, where they will represent the US and fight for the one, coveted spot in the World Final on September 29th, 2018.
Select B-Boys who competing in the cypher include: P Nut hailing from Illinois, Pop from NYC, Brian Pistols out of Boston, Box Won, Ookie and SupaJosh all from Philadelphia, Wealthy from Minnesota, and Icey Ives traveling all the way from Alaska. Hosted by Akrobatik, with DJ Lean Rock and DJ Fleg on the decks, all performers will bring an arsenal of moves and tricks to give it their all in the final remaining US qualifying cypher to advance to Zurich.

His family has created a Go Fund Me page to help with the medical expenses and other costs associated with his passing. To donate to Float’s family directly, please visit here.
