The 2022 Japan Final of Red Bull’s Dance Your Style breaking (breakdancing) competition is coming to Osaka!
The Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau (OCTB) worked with Red Bull Japan to bring the event to the iconic America-mura. Located within the Shinsaibashi district, America-mura (“American Village”) is the vibrant center of Osaka’s youth culture, famous for hip cafes, extensive street art, and a generator of Osaka’s latest street fashion trends. Triangle Park, officially known as Mitsu Park, is a triangle-shaped landmark in the center of America-mura and is frequently used for music performances and as a meeting spot for street dancers, making it the ideal spot for a breaking competition.
The winner of the Japan Final will be able to move on to the World Pre-Final for a chance to compete in the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Final in South Africa in December 2022. By using America-mura, a pillar for Japan’s street dance community, as the venue for a street dance competition, the OCTB is aiming to foster more interest in the area and for Osaka as a whole.
The OCTB is an official supporter of the Red Bull Dance Your Style 2022 Japan Final, as we aim to vitalize Osaka and get more people to become fans of Osaka through all kinds of sport events.
What is Red Bull Dance Your Style?
Breaking is a style of street dance that originated in the United States in the 1970s and has since gained worldwide recognition, and will even be included as a new sport at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. The sport has gained momentum in Japan as well, with Japan’s official professional dance league “D.LEAGUE” launching in 2021; a Japanese athlete achieving a medal for street dance at Paris 2024 is becoming increasingly likely.
Dance Your Style is a national street dance competition organized by Red Bull Japan with simple rules, emphasizing competitors’ unique styles. The Japan Final in Osaka will feature 16 competitors across different genres of dance, who will come together for a series of one-on-one dance battles using hit songs from popular artists such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Maroon 5, and more. However even the dancers themselves don’t know what song will play next, giving more excitement to both the dancers and the crowd.
The competition is outdoors, open to the public, and free to watch, so stop by and be a part of the excitement!
