The Jump Off Battle can easily be named one of the most talked-about dance battles in Toronto, bringing the highest acclaimed international judges and top dancers from around the world in the styles of Hip Hop, House Dance and Waacking.On June 24, 2012, Jojo Dancer and Fly Lady Di hosted Toronto’s first Jump Off Battle where dancers from all over the world went head-to-head to compete in some legendary battles. Due to the high calibre of Toronto’s dance talent, word of the event attracted dancers from surrounding cities, and even the world, as far as Asia and Europe.The Jump Off is teaming up with UDO’s Canadian Street Dance Championships on March 23, 2013 to bring House Dance and Waacking to a bigger, broader spectrum. A pioneer of Waacking, TYRONE PROCTOR (Soul Train, International House of Waacking) and the legendary Hip Hop Choreographer BUDDHA STRETCH (MOP TOPS / Elite Force) will judge their respective categories with special guest BRIAN ‘FOOTWORK’ GREEN, as the elite Waackers and House Dancers of Toronto and surrounding cities will compete for the grand prize of $200 in CASH!
