The best of NZ’s street dancers are battling it out for supremacy in Te Puke today.

The much-anticipated Te Puke Throwdown – National Dance Battle is happening in Te Puke all day with plenty of food, fun, dance workshops and a car being covered in graffiti street art.

The free all-ages competition is being held in conjunction with youth week 2019 which is running from May 18 to May 26. This year’s youth week theme is ‘We are more than you see’ ‘He wai hohonu a matou’ (literally, we are deep waters, thus referring to unseen depths).

Steve Fawcett from Vector Group says they are hoping to strengthen youth engagement and inclusivity and celebrate diversity. They also hope to strengthen the collaboration of the Te Puke community alongside youth service providers and to others.

The competition will see two categories, groups and singles, battle it out for cash prizes.

Entertainment includes free dance workshops with John ‘Happyfeet’ Vaifale and Renee Sharp, all styles and breaking, and an open jam session.

“We have some amazing talent coming so it’s going to be very entertaining,” says Steve.

A live band will also be playing at the event, along with live DJ’s.

Steve says it is a celebration in dance and is multi-generational family event which is unique to Te Puke. He says they wanted to establish an event that could lead to an annual youth event held in Te Puke and could be replicated to other towns.

This National Youth Week event is being held at the Jubilee Park from 11am – 3pm.
