The POW! WOW! Festival will be held on 15 September at Afrikaanderplein in Rotterdam. In addition to murals, live painting on vehicles and a full-fledged music program, the festival also presents an international breakdance program.
During POW! WOW! Rotterdam is resurrecting a real b-boy stage at Afrikaanderplein. Various battles will be held here, spread throughout the day, hosted by HustleKidz and with the cooperation of the world-famous Monster Energy b-boy Moy Rivas.
Moy Rivas has danced in dozens of national advertising campaigns and feature films and even traveled the world as a performer and motivational speaker. What Rivas does is technically called b-boying, but you probably know it as breakdancing.
Breakdancing traditionally combines four basic movements that are known as top rock, down rock, power moves and freeze. Although it may sound simple enough, Rivas combines these movements with his own distinctive style to create a performance that is truly unique and has made him one of the most famous breakdancers in history.
"I had nothing and that is the essence of hip hop and the values that are proposed are making peace, love, unity and pleasure."
There will be a 1-on-1 b-boy battle and all b-boys who want to compete can participate. Do you want to compete for the prizes in the 1-on-1 battle? You can register via the form on the POW! WOW! website.
