Four groups of area youths will represent the city in the upcoming Hip-Hop & B-Boy Dancercise Contest finals in Bangkok after winning the Pattaya semi-finals.
Troupes named “Metro Grooverz” and the “Zion Dance Crew” took first and second, respectively, in the adult bracket at the Hip-Hop & B-Boy Dancercise event Feb. 17 at Central Festival Pattaya Beach. Two other troupes, “TZ Crew” and “C-Star,” took the top two slots in the 15-and-younger bracket.
Metro Grooverz accept the 10,000 baht prize from Worawaphan Rattanahirat, product manger for M Sport.
Sport drink maker M Sport sponsored the contest and product placement was a key to winning the two-round contest. In the first round, dancers could put on freestyle moves to a song no longer than five minutes and had to handle a bottle of the drink for at least a minute.
The second round had identical rules to the first, except that none of the dance from the first song could be re-used.
Product manager Worawaphan Rattanahirat presented winners in the student category with first place prizes of 5,000 baht and 3,000 baht for second place. Adults won 10,000 baht and 6,000 baht respectively.
Finals will be held April 21 at Central World in Bangkok.
IZ Crew, winner of the Under 15s, accept their award from Worawaphan Rattanahirat, product manager for M Sport.
