Both, with moves encompassing many different street styles; popping, locking, break and house dancing, B-Boy Benny and B-Girl Keisha beat 18 other great break dancers from East London, Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth.
“The stakes were very high, especially considering the fact that I had taken a break. But, it’s an honour to return to the competition and land with a win; this means so much to me,” comments B-Boy Benny.
B-Girl Keisha commented: “I am overwhelmed and excited to be the first ever Red Bull B-Girl champion – it does not get any better than this. I can’t wait to be back next year to defend my title.”
