Battle in the Bay

101 Hastings Street South, Hastings

Battle in the Bay is Hawke's Bay's only National Hip Hop Dance Competition. It was founded in 2015 with the aim of empowering the Hip Hop and Street Dance Communities of New Zealand. We achieve our aim by bringing together dancers from all across New Zealand to share a weekend filled with dancing, workshops and connecting.

Our event has successfully grown to each year include hundreds of dancers and entries from all across New Zealand. We pride ourselves on creating a place where dancers can come to compete, up-skill, connect with, and build relationships with dancers from other areas of New Zealand; all while being equipped with the necessary experiences and knowledge to make a larger footprint in the National Hip Hop & Street Dance Scene of Aotearoa.

There are 4 sessions throughout the competition weekend. All dancers will compete in a Preliminary round with the top entries qualifying through to compete at finals for the title of 'Champion'.
