If you are a dancer and you don’t like confrontation, this might not be for you. We have a series of sessions, That we promote to all talent These are the proving grounds where dancers come through to network and show off their dancing style. The sessions are designed to attract new prospects that probably would not know how to get access to the loud community to battle. The sessions also give you the opportunity to showcase your skills in front of a judging crowd. Cyphers or Call out battles, random moments where newbies would put themselves out there to show how they could deal with competition. from the sessions we are able to tell what talent can be selected for a possible event. This gives us an idea of what would be a good challenge for a already operating member of Loud with a similar style. Great way of scouting new talent for us.

How does a battle happen?
Numerous ways, through social media, anticipation through word of mouth, sometimes the fans even just compare dancers and want to see that match up.

How many different battles are there? One on one? Group on group? Freestyle? Style specific?
There's one on one, group on group, Purge, Royal Rumble battle, footwork battles, bone breaking battles, style battle, but its better to keep this rare.
How is LOUD global?
We are on the forefront of street dance and a lot of people emulate the dancers all over, we have whole communities in different parts of the world, dancers literally come from different countries to train & compete. We have a cult following, but not everyone has it to venture out to NY. So we continue to push the envelope to build a bigger platform.
