Kissimmee resident Victor Montalvo is now the best break dancer in the Western Hemisphere, again. 

Saturday night, August 22, in front of a 3,000 person crowd at the Dr. Phillip's Center, the 2014 reigning champion out-danced 16 of the best b-boys from the US and Canada, and won the Red Bull BC One North America Finals for the second consecutive year.



Montalvo also made Red Bull history by becoming the first b-boy to claim this title twice in a row. You can watch footage of his routine here

“It feels so good to win this year because Orlando really supported me, more than I ever could have imagined,” Montalvo said in a press release. “They were screaming for me like crazy, and that got me hyped. I gave it all I had, and it means so much to me that I won here.”   



The event was co-hosted by MTV's Sway and Phife Dawg from Tribe Called Quest and featured an appearance by hip-hop legend Grandmaster Flash. 

Montalvo will now head to the World Final in Rome on November 14, where he will battle for the title of the world's best b-boy.
