This program is part of Summer Dance Forever, an international HipHop dance festival. Organized in several venues around town, including Paradiso, Summer Dance Forever presents a great variety of dance performances, next level battles (hiphop, popping, locking, house and waacking), soulful club nights and workshops from iconic dancers to refresh and boost your skills. This year's festival takes place from 22-28 August. 

Hiphop Forever is a dance competition at the international festival Summer Dance Forever where the Top 24 best dancers in the world battle against each other in the style of Hip-Hop.

Whoever wants to win this battle will have to defeat the three judges. This is what sets Summer Dance Forever apart from all other dance battles around the world. At other events the judges give their judgment from a comfortable distance behind a desk, but at Summer Dance Forever nobody is safe! The judges are always big international names, but even then judges don’t always win. The winner will achieve everlasting glory, win prize money and get to judge at a next event.

        How to get to Paradiso

        Paradiso is on the Weteringschans 6-8 in Amsterdam. That is very close to Leidseplein. From every part of the city there are trams heading towards Leidseplein. From there on out you can walk to Paradiso. Travelling by car is difficult, since there are only a few busy parking lots nearby.
