Every year, thousands of dancers across the globe vie for a chance to represent at the World Final, but only 16 breakers earn the right to do so.

In a showdown of some of the best breaking talent in the country, B-Boy Tornado from Mumbai and B-Girl Jo from Bengaluru bagged the titles of Red Bull BC One 2019 India Champions held at the historic Bandra Fort Amphitheatre on April 13. 

The fifth edition of the Red Bull BC One Cypher India saw breakers from six cities in the country compete for the titles and a chance to represent their country at the Last Chance Cypher which will be held in Mumbai in November. 

Every year, thousands of dancers across the globe vie for a chance to represent at the World Final, but only 16 breakers earn the right to do so.

At the event held at Mumbai, Tornado put together deft and original moves and beat Wildchild in three incredibly closely contested heats. In the end, the judges — Ronnie and star breakers B-Boy Luigi and B-Girl Narumi — voted unanimously in his favour. In the B-Girl cypher, Jo went up against Flowraw in the final and came out on top after two closely contested heats. 

B-Boy Tornado and B-Girl Jo will now compete at their respective Last Chance Cypher battles in Mumbai in November, for a chance to take the final spot in the top 16 at the B-Boy and B-Girl championships.

This year, Red Bull BC One expanded even further, with city cyphers being held in more cities and the addition of four regional cyphers.
