Aug 8 - The third and final regional battle in Sydney will be held at the PCYC Marrickville on Saturday August 11. This is the last GROOVE Sydney show before the big State Finals in September. Three Japanese groups and a host of city-based dance crews will be contending for the remaining wildcard spots.
"We decided to create a mini-GROOVE because there are other crews in the City that weren't able to make it to the West, " said Managing Director Marco Selorio. "For the groups that qualified, this is a chance to see the rest of the field, the groups that will fill up the final wildcard positions in the September 23 Sydney Finals."
In particular, three dance crews flew all the way from Japan to battle their way into the finals. Finesse Sensei, Osashimi Sisters and Ojo-sans will go head to head with the other dance crews. This will be the only opportunity to see the Japanese-based crews in action.
With the September 23 finals looming, the rest of the finalists are now waiting to see who will come on board. B'Kinki (Blacktown) and Psalms (Hills) will be leading the way.
