“It’s really amazing how dancers of all skill levels from across the states gather at a single place to dance,” Han said.

Han said anybody can come to spectate or battle, and Hip Hop Club officers are trying to persuade more club members to participate.

“Everybody has his or her own unique style, which is always nice to watch and learn from,” he said.

All the judges are professional dancers and up to $600 are offered in prizes.

Sponsor Lacey Grabek said she is most excited for the club members to be able to showcase their talent.

She said, “I am most excited for our club to finally be able to demonstrate their talents by doing something they love: performing and battling.”
