The winners of the previous competitions will all fight for the chance to win the Orlando qualifier. According to the event organizer, Red Bull BC One All Star Tour and the Red Bull BC One Southeast Cypher will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 12 and Saturday, Aug. 13 respectively.

Those competing in Red Bull BC One will be vying for the chance to be one of the 16 B-boys and B-girls to battle in the U.S. finals held in Los Angeles later this year.

But even those who aren’t in the competition can also get their big break. The event will also feature free break dancing workshops and panels offered to the public that Friday.

Those unable to attend can also watch a livestream on the Red Bull BC One YouTube page.
