Red Bull BC One brought back their annual break-dancing competition to the birthplace of hip hop with a star-studded event over the weekend in New York City.

The competition, which included top breakers from New York and around the globe, featured b-boys and b-girls who competed for a chance to battle at the National Finals in Orlando, Florida. New York winners included b-boy Frankie and b-girl Marta, who will later go toe to toe with other semifinal winners from Los Angeles, Boston and Houston. The Orlando winners will then compete for the opportunity to be crowned world champion at the Red Bull BC One World Finals taking place in Gdansk, Poland, on November 5 and 6.
