An intense and electric journey through SA street dance saw Reptilez take the Red Bull Beat Battle 2012 title proving that they truly are South Africa’s best dance crew.
In front of a crowd of over 1500 spectators at Bassline in Newtown, Artistic Intelligence, Hlaks, Ninja Turtles, Phly Nation, Real Actions Juniors, Reptilez, Soulistic Fusion & V.I.N.T.A.G.E set the stage alight with their dance vocabularies and tight routines. The Eight crews specialise in various styles from Hip Hop to Pantsula and everything in between with their road to the finals was paved through a gruelling six city qualification process.
It was an unexpected final with Repltilez facing off against V.I.N.T.A.G.E, it came down to a heated challenge and Reptilez were crowned the 2012 champions.
“It’s unbelievable, it feels like we’re dreaming! Our aim was to make the final and it was great that had the crowd on our side,” said the winners just as they stepped off the stage.

Not only was the crowd treated to the best local dance talent but some of South Africa’s best performers too - including Big Nuz , crowd favourites Black Motion, Pro and a special live band performance from the ever cool Kwaito kings, TKZee.
Apart from the opportunity to tour the country as Red Bull Beat Battle winners and give dance workshops, they’ll be jetting off to Brazil to witness the international final of Red Bull BC One.
