For the 11th year in a row, the world’s best solo artists and dance crews are hitting the floor for the pulsating rhythms, fancy footwork and neck-breaking acrobatics of Floor Wars.

A dance style with roots in the new York ghetto, B-boying features astonishing acts of agility with individuals and 3 x 3 crews taking turns to face off against each other arena-style.

The atmosphere in Vesterbro’s steamy Vega is both intimate and intense with the crowd up close to the duelling crews.

There are many side-battles going on, but the ‘great 8’ crews of 3 are undoubtedly the main attraction.

The fantastic news this year is that the incredible Japanese crew ‘Floorriorz’ are set to bust a move – they will surely be hot favourites to take home the crown.

Winners from international heats also go to Copenhagen to represent their countries. Italian crew Ormus Force, Germany’s Flowjob and the upcoming French young guns Tekken are among those who have made it to Vega.

Semi-finalists from 2010, the Moroccan crew Lhiba King Zoo will also be hoping to up their game.

The event is organised by Breakpoint, a hip-hop community formed to develop the dance forms of breaking, electric boogie and locking.

Don’t miss this one and remember to keep an eye out for the annual after-party if you feel like busting a few moves of your own.

    Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals are overrepresented in the lowest-paid fields of agriculture, transport, cleaning, hotels and restaurants, and construction – industries that classically lack collective agreements. A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
