Formosa at BOTY 2009: Breakin’ all the Rules

This is Taiwan’s Formosa Crew at the 2009 BOTY (Battle of the Year) dance competition in Singapore. They performed the same show-stopping routine at a dance performance I attended several weeks ago.

The concept behind this competition is to promote hip-hop as an art form. Formosa won first place at the BOTY Taiwan competition on July 5th. They went on to represent Taiwan in the BOTY Asia competition where they won placed third.

BOTY Asia was won by All Area Crew from Japan. Place 2 was Gamblerz (Korea) and Place 3 Formosa (Taiwan). All three crews will go on to join the BOTY Finals in Germany.

I'm a chronically ill Canadian who has been living in Taiwan since 2006. I'm a bit of a jack of all trades! I love art, gardening, flower arranging, reading (that's an understatement if you've seen my GoodReads profile), and snuggling with my cats. Animal videos make me cry. I hate cooking. Nothing makes me happier than seeing my garden bloom! Learning about new cultures and exploring the world has been my thing since I started traveling at age 19. A self-professed autodidact, I can speak comfortably on many different subjects and hold a special place in my heart for science, technology, law, health and medicine, and history. You can find me nerding out at home most of the time due to being chronically ill and housebound. If I'm not engaged in one of the activities listed above, I'm probably building websites. Check my About page under Carrie Kellenberger to learn why I'm taking you on this journey with me through My Several Worlds. I can't wait to get to know you better!
