B-Boy Engski and B-Girl Yani First-Ever Red Bull BC One Regional Cypher Philippines

“I’m grateful that a big event like this was held here in the Philippines, as the B-boy and B-girl communities are hungry for it. We are grateful, and we hope that they will continue to visit and host large events like this to provide possibilities for us coming from the Philippines.“ ~B-Boy Engksy, Breaker from Quezon City

B-Boy Engski and B-Girl Yani stood out among more than 80 competitors, showcasing their remarkable talent and expertise. They triumphed in the inaugural Red Bull BC One Regional Cypher Philippines held on March 7, 2024, at Apotheka in Manila. In the midst of intense competition, their exceptional abilities mesmerized both the audience and judges, leading to their well-deserved victory as the champions of the Red Bull BC One Regional Cypher Philippines. This win establishes them as top-tier breakers in the country, marking the beginning of their ascent onto the international stage.

As winners of the Red Bull BC One Regional Cypher Philippines, B-Boy Engski and B-Girl Yani, together with second place finishers,  B-Boy Killafour and B-Girl Liz, will travel to Indonesia to represent their country at the upcoming Red Bull BC One Southeast Asia Regional Final this March 22nd. The stakes couldn't be higher, as the regional champion in Indonesia will secure a coveted wild card slot at the Last Chance Cypher  for the Red Bull BC One World Final in Brazil later this year.

Meanwhile, B-Girl Yani shared her excitement about the inclusion of B-Girls in the Red Bull BC One Regional Cypher. She sees it as a significant step forward for the breaking community.

“I'm happy because this is the first time Red Bull BC One is in the Philippines and will feature a 1-v-1 category. Now that they've opened it for B-girls, I'm overjoyed and overwhelmed because it's not just for me, but for the entire breaking community.” ~B-Girl Yani

Leading up to the Red Bull BC One Regional Cypher, the Red Bull BC One All Stars engaged with the local dance community through a series of workshops spearheaded by renowned Filipino breakers such as B-Boy Ronnie and B-Girl Logistx. This initiative aimed to foster connections and inspire the next generation of dancers. 

“I think they (Breakers) need more events like this, they need to get more support. And also, we did a session with them and they just need more opportunities to battle, travel, and to build with one another. They need more opportunities to connect within different cities." ~B-Boy Ronnie

B-Girl Logistx also added that the breaking community needs more support, funding, and events like Red Bull BC One.

“A lot of the [Filipino] breakers are so dope, but what I think holds them back in terms of opportunities is just the visibility. So we can have more of that, which people like myself and Ronnie are pitching for. And connecting with others to bring that visibility, and the support here and for them to stay inspired and keep it up, which I know they will.” ~B-Girl Logistx

With breaking's inclusion in the Paris Summer Olympics for the first time, the Red Bull BC One All Stars eagerly seized the chance to connect with the dynamic local dance community. This endeavor highlighted Red Bull's commitment to fostering dance, arts, and culture in the Philippines while also amplifying the global significance of breaking.
