Think Cirque du Soleil has some high-flying acrobatics? Then you haven’t seen b-boys flip inside of a High Roller pod 550 feet in the air.
In anticipation of the upcoming Red Bull BC One North American Final breakdancing competition, the energy drink maker recently hosted the first dance battle on the new Strip attraction. The dancers showed off their impressive skills with dizzying backspins, wicked windmills and incredible footwork.
See them in action in the video above and in the photos below. But that’s just a taste of what’s to come.
On Aug. 15, 16 dancers—including two Vegas locals—will compete in the North American qualifier at Brooklyn Bowl, hosted by MTV and SIRIUS XM’s Sway Calloway. For more information, visit redbullbcone.com.
