A MESSAGE FROM HHI ON COVID-19

 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the entire world, HHI has decided to postpone the USA Hip Hop Dance Championship, World Hip Hop Dance Championship, World Battles and Urban Moves to August 5-14, 2021. 

From the start of this unprecedented outbreak, the health and safety of our HHI family has been of the utmost importance. We are confident that making this decision is in everyone's best interest.  

HHI recognizes that this is a challenging time for all of us. We encourage everyone to follow the guidelines being set by our respective governments and believe these actions are necessary to help us return to our normal lives. 

We pledge to make the 2021 World Hip Hop Dance Championship and World Battles the most memorable and exciting yet. 

In fairness to all, Hip Hop International will expand registration in 2021 to include crews and dancers who qualified in 2020 as well as 2021. We will also permit crews with members aging out to remain together to compete in 2021. 

This is a unique time, but we will get through it together. 

On behalf of Hip Hop International, we thank you for your consideration, understanding, passion, and commitment. 

Stay strong, stay safe and stay healthy!
