Fusion MC

Fusion Mind Crew hailing from Breaking Mecca South Korea, have done it for the first time. After last year’s second place, this extraordinary crew has now just won BOTY Korea by defeating the winners of BOTY International 2005 - Last for One in a heated final battle.

These very original dancers have already paid their dues both nationally as well as internationally, by winning inter alia Freestyle Session Korea 2013 or the French Chelles Battle Pro 2012. While last year they lost at the Korean qualifier against the incredible Morning of Owl they have been back in the lab and definitely stepped their game up with a showcase of epic proportions. Let’s see how this amazing and all-round team will do on the big stage and whether Korea is still bringing the heat internationally.

Last Alive

The crew brings together experienced dancers from the older generation and young talents like the worldwide known Bgirls Terra and Eddie.


Hailing from Moscow/Russia and representing Russia at BOTY Final for the second time, Predatorz are undeniably an insiders’ tip for the battles. After winning the best showcase at the R16 World Final in Korea, the crew will most probably come up with an amazing show for the 25th BOTY.
