Calgary will be the scene of a dance battle Saturday night.

That's where the Red Bull BC One qualifier will take place, with a group of Calgary B-Boys and B-Girls competing against each other.

The event is one of three qualifiers for national finals on May 24 in Toronto. It will all be part of a high-profile spring for breaking, which will be an Olympic event for the first time, with Vancouver’s Phil Wizard representing Canada in Paris.

The winner will try to join Calgary B-Girl Sasha Fox and B-Boy Frescy, both of whom have already qualified as wild-card entries for the national finals in Toronto.

Saturday’s event takes place at The Brownstone, at #120-221 10 Ave. S.E. at 7 p.m.
