NIEK TRAA (The Ruggeds)
Niek went from discovering flips in the countryside when he was a child, to some of the biggest stages in the world. Considered as one of the most influential Bboy of his generation, he has won many solo titles, like Battle Of The Year, HipOpsession and R-16. Besides being involved as a competitor, he’s responsible for World Bboy Classic, the world’s most important 2vs2 bboy competition, that takes place every year in Eindhoven. Being experienced in many different fields such as TV, Cinema, Live Performances, and large projects that involve creative people from different backgrounds, he is now Artistic Director of The Ruggeds.
MENNO VAN GORP (Hustle Kidz)
Menno is a Red Bull BC One All Star who has one of the most original styles on the breaking scene today. He bacome twice a world Champion, once in 2014 (Paris) and once in 2017 (Amsterdam). He is a dancer with heart, explosive energy and plenty of surprises. He is a master of smooth blow-ups, the mind-boggling moves that whip the audience into frenzy.
He started breaking around 2001. The first time he saw breaking was in the Run DMC video clip “It’s Like That.” He learned his first moves from his cousins and has been dancing ever since. Menno is an all-around B-Boy, making a living through working in shows, judging battles and teaching workshops. He has also developed into different aspects of dance, having created a solo show for theaters across his native The Netherlands. He is well respected for his painting and graphic design work, which he creates under the moniker Mennopoly. He hopes that Hip Hop will always be a part of his life and that he will be able to give back to the scene by teaching and organizing events.
For Menno, being a good B-Boy means being an all-round breaker with style, character and originality. “If you want to win a battle you have to give your all. You have to dance on beat, be original, be able to freestyle, and have the right attitude. As soon as I walk on stage I feel the stage is mine. I’m a very laid back person in everyday life, but whenever I dance, the beast comes out. I have a lot of respect for my opponents, but in a battle it’s war!”
