About

We Create Awesome Moments

The Kulture of Hype&Hope is an international dance event that returns every three months with a grand final edition at the end of the seasons. Our event is based in Utrecht, The Netherlands. It’s all about the love for dance, the passion for growth and having the experience of a lifetime. You don’t want to miss out on the next level battles, lectures & masterclasses by the best and energetic jamsessions at The Hypest Cypher. We create moments you will never forget.

Battle / competition

At all our events there are 1-on-1 HipHop and Break battles from below the age of sixteen and above the age of sixteen. Out of all participants there will be chosen a top sixteen who battle to become the winner of the event. At every edition we have an extra standup dance style added to the program. These are: Locking, House, Popping and Krump. In this extra dance category there will be chosen a top 8 out of all participating dancers. Like at a soccer tournament there’s a knock out systems that makes clear who has to battle who. Eventually one winner is chosen by the judges. The winner of the event gains a special edition of The Kulture of Hype&Hope golden t-shirt, and prize money.

Lecture / masterclass

International invited judges come to share their knowledge and experiences in a exclusive lecture. The visitors can learn from the experience and history of the lecturer. The lecturer also talks about the importance of one of the four elements to his or her career. The lecture ends with an interactive session where participants can ask their questions or share some of their experiences with the others. On the second day of each event you have a special opportunity to upgrade your skills and learn from the best in the masterclasses.

Urban Theater

We are seeing a development in the possibilities of our culture and art form which we would like to share with our visitors. The Kulture of Hype&Hope will provide showcases of urban theater, giving them insights to future possibilities in this urban dance world.

The Hypest Cypher

Through out the whole day there’s a new category: The Hypest Cypher. The Hypest Cypher is created for those who are hungry for their spot on the dance floor. The Hypest Cypher is a concept that is created by Giovani –Dimension- Vreede (founder), because the cyphers in the HipHop scene where people spontaneously form a circle and dance after one another is almost history. He felt the need to put cyphers as a must have on his event. We have a special area for The Hypest Cyphers. Each event a mystery judge will choose one dancer that was the Hypest in the cyphers. The winners will be gaining three Kulture Points and get the titel of Winner of The Hypest Cypher.

EVENTS
