For the fifth consecutive year, the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel supports the Fifth Middle East Bboy Qualifiers that was held on 6 May 2016 in Doha, Qatar.

B-boying, also known as breakdancing, is a style of street dance that originated among the African American and Latino youth during the mid-1970s. The dance spread worldwide due to popularity in the media, as it showcases diversity in the amount of variations available in the dance.

Hakim Omar, Founder of the Mighty Jokerz, the official organiser for the World Bboy Classic Middle East Qualifiers in Qatar said:

We are excited to bring the World B-Boy Classics Middle East Qualifiers back to Doha. It is the largest Middle East Breakdance Qualifier in the world. Every year hundreds of participants travel from all over the region to compete against each other with the ultimate goal to win this qualifier and to compete with the top break dancers at the b-boy world final in Eindhoven, The Netherlands on 4 June 2016.’

On the occasion of this exciting collaboration, Andreas Wissdorf, General Manager of the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha Hotel said:

Partnerships like this allow us to inspire our guests of today and tomorrow to experience something unexpected, whether it’s within the destination or even within the hotel itself. The World B-Boy Classic believes in the power of the Hiphop dance battle as a starting point for engagement and exchange. By supporting these young and talented individuals, we show our commitment to the next generation, enabling them to use our hotel as a platform for this intercultural interaction and exchange to take place.’
