The UK B-Boy Championships is a hip-hop dance competition held annually in the United Kingdom. UK B-Boy Championships, alongside Battle of the Year and R-16 Korea, is regarded to be one of the main International B-Boy Championships held every year. There are national qualifiers worldwide where dancers compete for the opportunity to represent their country at the international final held in London. The event features solo breakers, poppers, hip-hop dancers and b-boy crews from across the globe. It also host DJs and graffiti artists from other countries.[1]

The Championships brings together dancers from around the globe—including the US, Japan, Korea, Russia, China, Holland and Scandinavia—who've won the preliminary tournaments. After a five-month search, staging eight international eliminations, the winners all converge at the Brixton Academy every year to take part in the international final.[2] Since 2014, UK B-boy Championships partnered up with the World BBoy Series and helped create Undisputed, an event to crown the solo world bboy champion. In 2015, UK B-boy Championships was not held.
