Circle of Fire LLC, in association with the All the Way Live Foundation, has selected the renowned Palace of Fine Arts Theater of San Francisco, CA, U.S.A., as the location for the R-16 North American Bboy Championships. On June 8th & 9th, 2012, the finest athletes from around North America will compete in a tournament format for solo and team accolades as the best on the continent. The winners will represent North America in the R-16 Supreme Championships, Global Tournament to be held July, 2012, in Seoul, South Korea.

Athletes from throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada will take their amazing talents to the floor for the title of North American Bboy Champions in popping, locking, and bboying. This awe-inspiring art-form showcases the athleticism, style, and sheer tenacity of artists hungry for respect and excellence in their respective craft. The ‘R’ in ‘R-16’ stands for ‘Respect,’ ‘Ranking’ and ‘Revolution’, which aptly describes the image of Bboys.

&#8206;Seth Martinez, Co-Founder of the R16 North America's production company Circle of Fire LLC, can barely contain his excitement. "2012 will go down in history and mark North America's first open R-16 Bboy Championship Tournament, propelling the absolute best to go against the other 15 countries and regions participating at the Global Finals! As of right now, in the minds of these young athletes, there is no higher honor than to be crowned champion of R-16." With the international judging, R16 Korea contingent, prizes, and credibility associated with R16, every dancer will be hungry for the title.

Since 2004, the R16 Supreme Championships, Global Tournament has hosted 100s of world-renowned dancers from across the globe.Tens of thousands of spectators, new and old, have breathtakingly witnessed dancers battle their hearts out for worldwide recognition. There's no event quite like it.
