Hip Hop Unite
What is Hip Hop Unite?
The idea started with Musta Elbahi (Denmark) and Stef Ferrest (Belgium). They wanted to establish an international hip hop organization. Both Musta and Stef already had years of experience competing at and collaborating with different organizations and federations. However, FISAF appeared to be the best partner to execute their vision of Hip Hop Unite.
In 2011 Musta and Stef got the “go” to adapt all aspects of hip hop within FISAF and formed the first technical committee for hip hop. This committee consisted of: Alex (Russia), Svetala (Czech Republic), Cleopatra (Germany), Musta (Denmark) and Stef (Belgium) and several other advisors. These people joined forces to work out guidelines for Hip Hop Unite, always taking into account the feedback from participating countries and/or feedback from pioneers and people from the hip hop scene. This feedback is necessary to create a worldwide organization respecting as many aspects as possible.
These guidelines insure that, when- or wherever you compete in a Hip Hop Unite competition, you wil be held to the same standards of anyone else in the competition worldwide. Every Hip Hop Unite competition has the same rules and the same format. So every dancer can know what to expect and how they are going to be judged in a Hip Hop Unite competition. The only thing that you have to worry about, are the other crews or dancers.
“HIP HOP” is “UNITING” – coming together, sharing, respecting each other and learning from one another in order to grow and create better results.
The idea behind Hip Hop Unite is to create a well structured organization offering hip hop workshops, education and national, European and world championships focusing on the needs of dancers, coaches and the hip hop scene.
