COVID-19 and Dancer Safety

So you can participate and watch the event more safely. We believe it’s the right thing to do.

COVID-19 Special Rules
Special rules and concessions have been made to insure dancer safety for the 2021 UK Championship, covering the video submission process,

Social Distancing

Crew formations are often performance element that allows crews to put their unique stamp on their performance however Social distancing among the dancers during the performance with multiple dancers is not likely.

In an effort to accommodate government mandates for social distancing the sensible solution is to restrict direct dancer partnering or the propeling of a dancer in a routine. Any form of body contact that seems intentional and rehearsed among crew members and used in the routine is prohibited and subject to penalty deductions.


Your event the way it should be

All the action, all the fun, all the thrills of our competition delivered to you state of the art, including:

  • Commentary and analysis
  • Proper Judging without the fear of video skipping
  • Higher quality production so you can enjoy the full event

and of course

  • The opportunity to represent the UK at the World Hip Hop Dance Championship in America.

UK Battle 2021

Battles give individual freestyle dancers to display their skills in the ultimate face-off.
