The latest news and results of Juste Debout Tour 2017

Juste Debout is one of the largest events in the Street Dance community. Created by Bruce Ykanji in 2001, what started as a small local event has expanded to become one of the foremost events in the calendar and is now internationally recognised and one of the most prestigious events on the scene. There are 4 main categories: Popping, Locking, House and Hip-Hop, each done in pairs. In addition to this there have been various side categories that have been introduced over recent years. These include Top Rock, Experimental, Dancehall and 2v2 Breaking.

For the main event there are 4 judges. One expert representing each style. These judges attend all the various qualifiers which are held around the world and this helps to maintain a consistency in judging for any given year. This year the line up features Boogaloo Kin(Korea) for Popping, Scoo B Doo(USA) for Locking, Ben(Germany) for Hip Hop and Kapela(France) for House. To reduce the occurrence of ties each expert has extra weighting for their particular style when that style is being performed.

On this 15th edition, the tour commenced in Sorocaba, Brazil in December and will be visiting 12 other countries until the final in Paris. We will keep you updated on the qualification winners. It’s that time again and we predict this will be another exciting year! In the following months, the internet will be flooded with footage from the qualifiers featuring new talent alongside established dancers. We expect a high level of participants so stay tuned to find out who will make it to the finals which will take place on March 5th, 2017 in the AccorHotels Arena.
