The Battleground America competition is an invitational 5v5 All Style High School only dance battle. Only five students can enter to represent an invitational high school, as that high school’s team. These representatives will be battling against the dance representatives of the other high schools. Competitors will be competing and learning to bond within their (Age Group) community rather than the older more advanced environment; in addition to community involvement we will be opening this event to family members and friends.
This event will help foster relationships and connections between the youth as well as between me (Marcus Edralin) so that they can better understand the Hip Hop scene within Sacramento. We will also be advertising the release of the movie, Battlefield America, and hopefully we all as a cumulative group of Sacramento dancers will be going to see the movie. Come check it out! You won’t want to miss this event of the year!
