RULES AND REGULATIONS
The Breaking Battle has no age divisions. There is however a minimum age requirement of 18 years
Please note: If any of the participants fail to reach on or before the given call-time, negative marking shall be applicable for the same.
The first round will be a cypher round where a Bboy/Bgirl is expected to pack in all their best moves into a single throwdown of not more than 45 seconds.
After tallying the marks given by the regional judges,16 of the top scoring dancers shall make it to the regional battle round.
Each breaker will then face another qualified participant in a single round to determine who moves to the next round.
In case of a tie, a tie-breaker round shall determine the winner.
The top 8 dancers will then face each other in a battle of two throwdowns each in order to find out who the top 4 breakers from the regional qualifiers shall be.
Again in the case of a tie-breaker a singular tiebreaker round shall take place.
The 4 top breakers thus will automatically get a spot in the finals.
The top 4 will then battle against each other and a winner will be decided from the regional rounds. (Please note- This is to help us set the order of appearance in the Mumbai Finale rounds. All the 4 finalists will get a chance to compete at the Mumbai Finale irrespective of who wins in the regional rounds.)
The decisions will be made by a panel of 3 judges, and their decision shall be final, Touching an opponent will lead to a deduction in marks and might even lead to disqualification. Note- If you’re an international participant, all the above rules apply in the same manner. We won’t be able to pay for any expenses during the regional rounds but we may cover a part of your expense (Travel, Boarding & Lodging) for the finale if you qualify for the same.
The top 16 bboys/bgirls will battle in rounds of two minutes each which will be conducted in 4 throwdowns of 45 seconds each to narrow the field of competition to the top bboys/bgirls in India.
Two bboys/bgirls will battle at a time to determine which one advances to the next round.
The pool is halved and the same process continues till we have the best bboy/bgirl of India.
Physical contact in battles will not be tolerated and may result in a disqualification or a score deduction for the dancer or dancers involved.
