Linder Auditorium Parktown Johannesburg, was the Battle Field. Six proudly South African dancers were the warriors doing battle at the Hip Hop Dance SA Championship – ConQuer Crew, coached by Wesley Grainger, when they competed in the 2016 Hip Hop International (HHI) South African Hip Hop Dance Championships – junior division.

Competing against the country’s finest crews, ConQuer Crew made it through the semi-final and proceeded to the finals which took place the following day. They have been selected as one of the junior champions to represent South Africa at the HHI Dance Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA from 8 to 13 August 2016.

Hip Hop International is the worlds most celebrated dance event. Over 3000 of the world’s best dancers will descend on Las Vegas for the 2016 World Hip Hop Dance Championship, where Crews from over 50 nations will compete head to head to Capture the world Title and international bragging rights.

In Las Vegas they will have the opportunity not only to compete against the world’s finest, but also to attend dance workshops hosted by world renowned dancers and choreographers like Tabitha and Napoleon from So You Think You Can Dance and Dtrix, Ian Eastwood and ChachiGonzalez from reality dance program, America’s Best Dance Crew, to name a few. The costs are high, but so are their spirits, enthusiasm and belief that the Conquer Crew dancers will get the opportunity of a lifetime. They will need all the help they can get, due to the high costs for travel and accommodation.

Any assistance the team can get in the form of donations or sponsorships will help these children realise their dreams. Please contact Wesley Grainger on 082 762 4768, if you wish to assist these dedicated and passionate dancers. The hip hop dancers are extremely honoured and looking forward to do SA and the Alberton proud at this prestigious event.
