That Belgium's Flanders region is a breaking hotbed has again been proven this weekend. A dance club in the city of Antwerp called for b-boys and b-girls to show up for a "regional" competition on Sunday. 800 did!
One could argue that Antwerp's metropolitan area is home to a sizeable population, 1.2 million, but 800 breakers is still pretty good for entries.
Apparently the JayBeeS Dancers, a school from Turnhout - another city in the Antwerp province - were most numerous and most successful. They won 10 competitions in the different events and age grades, they came in second nine and third four times in all. Obviously, the Belgian b-boys who had qualified for Stage III Breaking for Gold were present too. B-Boy Sawyer was the one who travelled farthest. He's from the French-speaking Waloon region.
