Bonnie & Clyde Battle
In the Bonnie & Clyde Battle, B-Girls and B-Boys team up to face each other in an intense 2 vs 2 competition. Several competitors from the World Final lineup entered, serving up a series of ridiculously skilled and high octane battles that made Bonnie & Clyde one of the hypest events of the evening. Roxrite and Paulina stood victorious as the "power couple" of the evening.

Top to Bottom Battle
In the Top to Bottom Battle dancers are required to show their proficiency in Top Rock and Footwork. In the preselection round everyone was doing one round with both elements and in the battles, they went for two rounds with only Top Rock or Footwork allowed. Out of 34 contenders, B-Boy EZ Mike from Switzerland and Kastet from Russia made it to the Final. EZ Mike won the battle by demonstrating mastery of foundation, musicality and originality.

Popping Battle
26 dancers participated in the Popping Battle, including international heavy-hitters like Bruce Ykanji and Nelson. In the final, Nelson met Popping Prince in a France vs France showdown. The judges saw the battle close by a 2:1 vote. The popping title goes to Popping Prince. The hypest battle in the competition was without a doubt the semifinal between Nelson and Bruce Ykanji.

Continent Battle
As the continent battle is a battle without judges where the teams battle each other in an unregulated exchange of styles, there is no official winner. But as these battles hyped up the whole Komplex 457 and brought an amazing energy to all the dancers, we consider everyone a winner in this crew battle without equal. Team America was strong with power moves and tricking, Team World showcased individual style and originality and Team Europe came with the untamed energy of the youth. The whole thing ended in a collective uprock session accompanied by classic breaks from DJ Lean Rock.

Break Down the House
In break down the house a breaker and a house dancer team up to bring their different styles to the floor, all to house music. This forces especially the B-Boy or B-Girl to explore different rhythms and find new ways. Perla and Tonio came prepared and took the title with flawless teamwork and amazing solo skills.
