WHAT IS THE ELITE 16
The Elite 16 (E16) is the brainchild of Miguel teck arteaga. it is an original breakin’ battle concept that was created and used at the first edition of an event called “Who Came 2 Serve?” july of 2002 in ARLINGTON heights, illinois.
sixteen competitors are invited or qualify
THROUGH a showcase style FORMAT.
once the 16 competitors have been selected they are then paired up AT RANDOM. pARTNERS ARE MAINTAINED THROUGHOUT THE COMPETITION AND cannot be from the same group/crew.
The pair who makes it to the end faces off for a final battle leaving one winner and the elite 16 champion.
17 years later we have decided to take the elite 16 #e16 #elite16 on tour to various cities around the world where we end in san luis potosÍ, mÉxico with an all star line up August 17th, 2019.
