For the preselection, the contestants will be divided in 3 cyphers. Every cypher has one judge. If everybody in the cypher danced at least one time, the judges will switch to another cypher. So it means you will have to dance 3 times and prove yourself to each judge separately.


Seven2Smoke: Prelims will be done in 3 cyphers. Enter the cypher and dance, as many times as you like, for however long there's time to cypher (ca 1 hour). Choose your moment to shine and impress the judges. During these cyphers, the judges will choose the TOP 8 that will battle in the Seven2Smoke.  


What is a Seven2Smoke? 

20 minutes, 8 dancers, 3 judges and a DJ. That's what you need! 

One of the dancers starts in the winning spot, the rest are challengers. The battles are one vs one. The winner takes the winning spot, and is challenged by the next challenger in line. It is always the jury that decides who wins. Do you lose a round? Then you go to the back of the line of challengers. The winner is the dancer who beats seven opponents in a row or the one who wins the most after twenty minutes.
