battle staand


Whoever wants to win this year’s Forever battles – Popping, House Dance, Hiphop and Breaking – will have to defeat the international judges. This is what distinguishes Forever from all other battles; at Forever the finalists battle the judges. A battle in which only the best survive. Whoever wins gains eternal glory and prize money (500 euros).

New this year: participants for the battles are selected during a preselection
The preselections take place on another day than the battles. If you do not participate in the preselection, you can not participate in the battle. Visitors are very welcome at the preselections. Participant tickets for the preselection are including the battle.

Battle rules

Forever is the only place where you get to battle the judges, so you’ll need to step up your game! Out of all the dancers, 12 (16 for Breaking Forever) will be chosen by the judges. Dancers will be judged on their style, technique and flow. Out of those 12, 6 dancers will go through to the next round, the semi-finals (for Breaking Forever 8 dancers will go through to the semi-finals ). The 3 finalists (4 for Breaking Forever) that remain will each choose a judge to battle against. This is the part where the judges become dancers and the decision is up to you; you either give it to your opponent or the crowd chooses. Last (wo)man standing wins Forever. 

Tickets

New this year is that participants for the battles are selected during a separate preselection. These preselections take place on another day than the battles. If you do not participate in the preselection, you can not participate in the battle. Visitors are very welcome at the preselections. So there are two types of tickets for the preselections: visitors and participants. With the last one you register to participate in the preselection (and if you are selected you can participate in the battle). Participant tickets for the preselection are including the battle; so if you register for the Popping preselection, you do not have to buy an extra ticket for the Popping Forever battle.
