Witness a celebration of urban dance culture, and a battle on the streets of Melbourne!

Dance Massive’s flagship free outdoor event BATTLE MASSIVE will create an engaging environment to showcase the diverse street dance communities that give our city vibrancy all year round.

BATTLE MASSIVE has partnered with local dance communities including Brothers in Arms, Metaphysical Groove, Afrocan, Krump and Young Masters to co-curate the event and mix the traditional “Battle” format with a series of performances that show each community in their truest form. And YOU, the public, can join in!
