Dutch B-Boy Menno Wins Red Bull BC One Breakdancing World Final
Over the weekend, Dutch B-boy Menno won the Red Bull BC One World Final. Held in Paris at La Grande Halle de La Villette, the competition saw 16 of the world's best dancers in a series of one-on-one battles. Contestants came from around the globe; the United States was represented by Tucson's Thesis, as well as Brooklyn's Gravity and Orlando's Victor Montalvo, the American national champions in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
As for Menno, he took the finals over Japan's Taisuke. (Three former world champions—two of them repeat winners—were eliminated in the first round.) After taking the belt, Menno explained the keys to his success: “I travel the floor with unpredictable movements. I try to misguide people. I try to trick people with creativity. And I try to fish from different waters than other B-Boys.”
Next year's World Final will be held in Italy.
