This is the 4th year incarnation of SND at Klang Parade, it has become a popular testament to the rising street dancers locally and internationally. The BOTY Malaysia Selection is back again on its 2nd year in Klang Parade to identify the best Malaysian B-Boy or B-Girl dance crew to represent the nation in Thailand for the regional selections.

Supporters and family are encouraged to come over to witness the competition live at Klang Parade because the experience and impact as it is much more exciting than watching it from the television.

The final selection round for SND will take place at Klang Parade on Sunday, 13th August, where dancers are invited to battle it out in two categories, the "Solo Freestyle I -on- I Battle" and the "Freestyle Open Crew Showcase". The top winners of both categories will then move on to the Grand Finals at the mail on the following Sunday, 20th August, where they will battle it out against winners from the selection rounds at Klang Parade's sister locations, Ipoh Parade and CITTA Mall.

At the Grand Finals, all the top contenders will also test their mettle against 5 international dance crews from Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines; the latter of which snagged the top two positions last year. Needless to say, the Malaysian teams are desperate to snatch the trophy from their Filipino brothers and sisters.

"We used to say... the competition serves partly as an educational tool to demystify all the negativity that surrounds street dancing, especially in a community that never really understood it," comments returning judge Danny Lee, leader of the Rejuvenate Dance Crew (Astro Battleground 2013, Asian Battleground 2016, and Seacon International Bangkok 2016 Champion).

"Now, we're proud to say the competition has grown into an international event, and that more and more people are excited to mark us down as a highlight in their calendars. We've grown so much as a community that we now openly celebrate street dancing as a legitimate hobby or even career, as opposed to when we first started out."

The judges for SND are Chrissy from Taiwan, GI from Thailand, MT Pop from Vietnam, and of course Danny Lee on the panel this year. 


Calling for all the dancers that enthusiast to battle all out and showcase their talent to the world to participate in the final round of Shuddup N' Dance 2017 at Klang Parade on 12th and 13th August, 2017 before the International Grand Finals.
