3rdTech Run   The event kick started on Friday with a hip hop group competition, there was a total of 12 individual group performances that day. All teams provided their own music and their own unique routines.   On Saturday, I attended the evening workshop session where April and Jun were the choreographers. Both choreographers had different practices in teaching but both sessions the students were able to keep up and follow along.  

Saturday evening, they held a break-dance competition at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. The break-dance competition was more competitive and intense as the battles had an in your face attitude which added to the excitement. The winner of the competition was PPC who battled Flow Fanatics in the finals.
