Breakdancers from the great continent of North America filled the Henry Fonda Theater on Saturday to battle each other at the Red Bull BC One Qualifier in Hollywood. As a white girl from suburban Philadelphia I think it's best if I let the photos and video handle most of the narrative as I would not like to embarrass myself by mixing up my coin drops with my turtle moves. That said, Spee-D of the Unique Styles Crew and Break Disciples won top prize and is headed to the finals in South Africa this September.
