The Significance of theWorld Hip Hop Championships and World Battles to
the Philippine Dance Community:
• For years, the Philippine Dance Community has been clamoring for
eliminations to be held in the Philippines for the World Hip Hop Dance
Championships in Las Vegas.
• Previously, the only way to qualify for the world’s biggest hip-hop dance
competition was to send a dance video of the competing team, subject to
the final approval of the HHI governing body.
• With the staging of Hip Hop International Philippines, the whole
Philippine Dance Community now has an equal chance at representing
the country in Las Vegas.
• No other competition in the world provides the ultimate bragging rights
like the World Hip Hop Dance Championship
The Significance of the World Hip Hop Championships
and World Battles to the Philippine Dance Community:
• There is no established competition in the Philippines that brings the
same prestige and recognition that being a World Hip Hop Dance
Championship/ World Battles qualifier brings. More so if the group or an
individual wins it all.
• There is also no established competition for individuals who want to
compete in Popping, Locking, Allstyles and Bboy in the Philippines.
Although there are a few events for these dance styles, they are
incomparable to the World Battles.
• The World Hip Hop Dance Championships and World Battles are the
perfect avenue to make known to the world the Filipino talent in dance,
for those who fail to take notice of it.

The Use of Dance for Brand Promotions
Lately, there has been an increase in the number of brands who prefer to
use dance as a tool in marketing. Dance appeals to a wide audience, both
young and old, even if dance can generally be associated with the youth,
who we can consider as a lifestyle market with lots of potential. Here is a
look at some of the major brands that have chosen to use dance as a
means of promotion and marketing:
