The top 8 chosen from 1v1 style pre-lims in waacking will advance to be apart of the 7-to-smoke. This was and is Seattle’s very first waacking 7-to-smoke battle – yay!

>>> 1V1 WAACKING BBs <<<
This category is specifically for the BBz! If you have been waacking for 6 months or less OR if you have never battled before, come join in on the fun. This category is for new waackers and we want it to be a safe space for yall to live your lives. The most important part of this category is that you have fun!

Note: The format of this specific battle will be like how ballroom is formatted. You get your 10s in a solo showcase then you are paired right away with someone to battle. The 1v1s keep going back to back until there is one victor. Please also note that waacking is NOT apart of ballroom culture and normally does not take part in this style. Also no dipping in waacking hehe.

Prelims are 1v1 style. Enter solo.
Judges will choose top 8 and will be randomly put into 4v4 teams lottery style!
Top 4 will be 2v2
Finals as 1v1.
*Note: Semi-Finals and Finals will have a LIVE beatboxer for all the rounds with beats provided by EVMB from Los Angeles, CA. Get ready for this fun challenge!

Secret judge that will choose who is the flyest of em all.

[ P R I Z E ]
All winners in every category will receive:
*Trophy Plaque w/ Devon Cady Lee’s art
* Prize Package with fresh gear from your local POC-Owned stores (Trichome, Moksha, and more coming)
*Probably boba
