VAGABOND CREW (France)

Since 2001, Vagabond has distinguished himself by winning many times the Battle Of The Year, part of the history of this competition. The crew has become a school with specific working techniques and a level of requirement that are now anchored in their A.D.N. 2017 marks their return to competition with a new objective: to associate experienced dancers with young people trained for three years in the various Vagabond Lab and make them discover the requirement that has made the reputation of Crew. If the spirit of competition still pushes them to aim for victory, this year they especially want to participate with the other groups present to offer the best show and contribute to their level to restart the battles in 8 vs 8 in France.

BLACK OUT CREW   (Greece)

BLACK OUT CREW (Greece)

Blackout crew as a name and in a more organized form as a crew was established around 2012 but the name was used among some of the members,along with friends as a way to enter competitions and jams with people that were practicing together since 2009-10. Some of our members were dancing for a long time with a well known crew from Greece named Dead Prezz but since there was a distance because of the different cities it became harder and harder to practice together So came the initiative to create a crew in a more organized form based in the city of Thessaloniki. Since then we have grown in a lot of ways,tried different set ups with members,progressed in showcasing and competitions and even created our own studio in the city of Thessaloniki. It will be our third time to represent Greece at the B.O.T.Y international and we are looking forward to develop even more from this experience!!! See you at Montpellier :)

MOUSTIK CREW (Madagascar)

We, with my association ARTPRENEUR MADAGASCAR, have  used BOTY  to created an opportunity to gather all the crews from all over Madagascar. Since most B-boys can not afford transportation to the the capital, and also are good B-boys but not compete on stage with a showcase. 
We created a training programs , French and English language courses. We toured Madagascar, check out their everyday life as Bboys in their community and we discovered way more crew than expected.
At first they were 21 then 19 and in the end we only let 11 crew to go onstage.
MOUSTIK crew was against SFLK, both crew are based in Antananarivo.
