The Osaka Convention & Tourism Bureau (OCTB) has teamed up once again with Red Bull Japan to bring the Red Bull Dance Your Style 2023 Japan Final to Osaka for its second year! This dance battle competition will return to the iconic America-mura neighboorhod, the vibrant center of Osaka's youth culture famous for hip cafés, expressive street art, and being a generator of Osaka's latest street fashion trends. Triangle Park, officially known as Mitsu Park, is the 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 this event will compete in one of two Red Bull Dance Your Style Pre-Finals to earn one of eight free spots in the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Final in Frankfurt, Germany this November.
2022's event attracted around 10,250 onlookers, creating a charged atmosphere and bringing greater attention to Osaka's America-mura neighborhood. The OCTB is an official supporter of the Red Bull Dance Your Style 2023 Japan Final, as we aim to revitalize Osaka and encourage 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 an international street dance competition organized by Red Bull Japan with simple rules, emphasizing competitors’ unique styles. The Japan Final in Osaka will feature 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 rules are simple: the dancer that wows the crowd the most is crowned the winner. The competition is outdoors, open to the public, and free to watch, so stop by and be a part of the excitement!
