I just wanted to thank you for including my family in the Freshcoast Championship. The competition was a great motivator for my son but we all enjoyed the competitiveness, the athleticism and the culture that we shared that day. From the little kids beating up the extra mat space, to my 72 year old Mom appreciating the amazing talent that her grandson hopes to achieve -- we all had a great time. Seeing the community of Kelowna come together with the breakdancing community in the spirit of artistic expression on such a beautiful Okanagan day created the perfect summer vibe. Can't wait to do it again next year! Sincerely,
Seeing the growth from one year to the next was very impressive. This event is rooted in a passion to inspire. A passion to bring a new art form and culture to locals in Kelowna. The feeling of community and artistic expression during the event made me feel so good. I’m excited to see what this event develops into over the years as it matures in the Okanagan.
My experience at Fresh Coast Championships, In July 2017 I had the pleasure of coming to the beautiful city of Kelowna to participate in the 2nd annual Fresh Coast Championships as the event's DJ. My experience was amazing. I was able to share my music with a whole new audience. It was great to see the people of Kelowna gather together along with dancers from all over Canada and support this beautiful art form. Fresh Coast is doing a great job bringing people together and spreading a positive message through dance, music, and art. I can truly say I was a part of a movement that is inspiring generations of dancers and artist in the community.

My friends and I look forward to attending Fresh Coast Championship every year. Not only does this event have a great venue, a skilled DJ that provides great music, and talented judges that do an amazing performance and teach a superb class afterwards, the overall atmosphere is very welcoming which cannot be said about many similar events I have attended around the world. This year was especially well organized with the venue being right by the beach, a big space to dance on, and a larger turnout than previous years with even more talented dancers competing this year. It is a great community-building event that shares a positive artistic outlet that also includes a fitness component and is a great manifestation of what Hip hop culture is all about. Looking forward to next year already.

I have been to many events in the last 20 years, and Freshcoast Championship was definitely one of my favourite events. It was very well organized, and I was personally very impressed that I could see lots of young kids there. They put all of their energy and passion on the floor. It was beautiful to watch. I want to thank Kelowna and the Freshcoast Championship organizers. I certainly want to come back next year.

Freshcoast Championship was amazing! Thank you to everyone involved in making it happen this year. Very honoured to have been a part of it. It was such a beautiful event that really brought the community together to celebrate art and the people through Hip Hop. Such positive vibes and beautiful exchanges with all the artists of all ages. There is a hunger for breaking in Kelowna and you can see it in the youth. They want it. They need it. Freshcoast needs to happen again!
