JUSTE DEBOUT RETURNS TO BARCELONA!
Juste Debout, the largest and most prestigious urban dance competition in the world, returns to Barcelona in 2019. Juste Debout Spain has previously been organized in 2012 in Mataró, in 2013 in Granollers, in 2007, 2016 and 2018 in Barcelona and in 2017 in Bilbao.
Year 2019 celebrates 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 Barcelona 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 Spanish 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).
