Le breaking de compé tition is coming to Montreal

On October 6th, the breakingone against Red Bull BC One competition will return to Montreal and will open the Canadian season with regional qualifiers.

Red Bull BC One is recognized as the most prestigious breaking competition in the world. The regional qualifications will allow the best dancers in Quebec to show their talents through duels. Thereafter, they can be selected for the Canadian final which will take place in Toronto on October 15th. The ultimate goal is to make it to the Red Bull BC One World Finals in New York, the birthplace of breakdance.

Among the Quebec dancers shortlisted for the final in Toronto, we find Samuel Cyr, Montreal “B-boy” known as “Mass”, and Bérénice Dupuis, aka “B-Nice”. These two dancers are part of the Canadian national breaking team.

He participated in the television competition Revolution and now dances in various productions of Cirque du Soleil and Cirque Éloize. In 2021, he won the Red Bull BC One final and intends to do the same this year.

Having also been trained in theater, she co-founded “Circul'R” in 2013 with Davis Phiphak, to explore the dramaturgical qualities of breakdancing.
