ELITE JUDGE PROGRAM

Hip Hop International recognizes the pride, commitment and sacrifices of every dancer who graces our international events and World Championship. HHI strives to ensure that their performances are assessed by individuals with the highest level of accuracy and experience. To accomplish this Hip Hop International has developed Official Elite Judges who are experienced, committed, properly trained and evaluated.

A Judge’s journey to obtain ELITE JUDGE STATUS requires several years of judging experience, participating in the “official” HHI Rules and Regulations Course, judging official HHI events nationally and internationally and successfully completing the HHI Elite Judge Training Program.

Our ELITE JUDGES featured here have met the specific criteria established by Hip Hop International to ensure that the standard of HHI’s Official Rules and Regulations is adhered to year round.

HHI proudly introduces our OFFICIAL ELITE JUDGES who have been trained and equipped with the necessary tools to assist in the FORMULATION, MONITORING and LEADERSHIP of Hip Hop International Judge panels around the world.

For more information on HHI’s Elite Judges or to arrange to bring one or more Elite Judges to your next championship or event contact HHI at info@hiphopinternational.com.
