JUSTE DEBOUT BELGIUM 2019
HIP HOP - HOUSE - POPPING - LOCKING -
JUSTE DEBOUT RETURNS TO BELGIUM!
Juste Debout, the largest and most prestigious urban dance competition in the world, returns to Belgium in 2019.
Juste Debout has previously been organized in Brussels in 2007 as Juste Deboout Benelux, and the 2019 event in Antwerp marks the second edition of Juste Debout Belgium.
Year 2019 celebrates already the 17th edition of Juste Debout!
Juste Debout World Tour will visit 15 countries around the world between December 2018 and March 2019. The winners of each competition category of the Antwerp preselection will advance to the world finals in Paris (France) on March 3, 2019 to compete for the desired Juste Debout Championship (considered the unofficial world championship title).
It will be the perfect platform for the Belgian street dancers to show their skills, share with the other dancers arriving from all over the world and learn from the legends of urban dance.
Dancer and choreographer Bruce “Ykanji” Sone organized Juste Debout for the first time in Paris in 2002 to support “upstyle” street dance “styles” (Hip Hop, House, Locking and Popping) to balance the scale against several breakdance contests arranged around the globe.
17 years later, Juste Debout has become the best known and most street credible of all street dance events in the world. The competition is known of its good atmosphere, good quality dancing and not the least, of its judging panel that always consists of well known characters and legends within the industry. So also in 2019.
The 17th edition of Juste Debout introduces a jury with the international dance super stars Tony Mc Gregor (USA), TweetBoogie (USA), Nelson (France) and Manu (France).
Juste Debout Belgium 2019 will be staged in URBAN CENTER ANTWERP and there will be more than 300 dancers and around 1000 spectators expected to attend the event.
The competition form is 2vs2 battles in Hip Hop, House, Popping and Locking and 1vs1 battles in the "Junior Dance Tour" category. The winners of the Belgian preselection in each style will advance directly to the Juste Debout World Final in Paris on March 3 , 2019 where the winners of the preselections around the world will meet and battle for the prestigious Juste Debout Champion – title. The other contestants will qualify from the preselections organized in Japan, China, Korea, Thailand, Ivory Coast, USA, Switzerland, UK, Italy, Sweden, Austria, Spain, France and Germany. The final will be organized at the Accor Hotels Arena in Paris where the event attracts more than 16.000 spectators and an audience of over 140.000 viewers for the live broadcast!!
