Circle Prinz

July 21, 2010

Welcome to eastvan brand will be representing with some gear at this competition.

Famous Circle presents Circle Prinz Canada, the international prelims for the world acclaimed Circle Kingz B-Boy competition, coming to Vancouver for the first time since 2005. On July 31, 2010, Circle Prinz Canada will draw b-boys and b-girls from across North America to battle for an opportunity to win roundtrip airfare to Lausanne, Switzerland and compete for the crown at the Circle Kingz World Finals.

Driving the force and hosting Circle Prinz are organizers and b-boys of Famous Circle, Rory “Roketto” Kirkham and Robin “Fingaz” Campbell. Both attended Circle Prinz Tokyo in October 2009 and were blown away by the vibe at the event. It was so true to the traditions of b-boying that they knew they had to bring the event to Canada.
“Circle Prinz is one of the rawest jams out there. It’s a 2 on 2 and each crew has to throw down in the ciphers to prove themselves worthy of entering the battles. Secret judges choose the top 16 crews and the battles only get hotter from there,” said Campbell.

Youth from across the continent are unifying to battle at the only North American prelim for Circle Kingz for the opportunity to fly around the world and do what they love-dance.
Circle Prinz Canada will be held at the Russian Hall at 600 Campbell Ave. Vancouver, BC. with B-boy qualifications at 1pm and the main event at 4pm with guests DJ Blesone of Massive Monkees, Vancouver’s own DJ Flipout of Contents Under Pressure and JayKin.
Tickets are $20 at the door or $15 in advance available online at
