Freestyle Session has always been a gathering of the worldwide bboy and bgirl community and this year was no different.  There were familiar faces from many scenes, crossing multiple generations, all getting down together with a vibe like no other. BBoys and BGirls showed up from all corners of the globe to compete at this year’s World Finals event all hoping to grab a spot in the top 32 bracket.  With a payout at the top 16 level, all the breakers had incentive to give it their all in hopes to advance and with a steady flow of Monster Energy, the dancers had no trouble bringing their A-game. It was one of the most anticipated events of the year and now that the dust has cleared, we have our champions from the Freestyle Session World Finals, Pro Breaking Tour, Championship Series event.

In the Crew-on-Crew battle it was the Monster Energy Bboys who took first place over Squadron.
