The most anticipated annual hip hop dance competition is back! Dance crews will square off to become Australia's best dance crew.
Looze Control is an annual Hip Hop Dance Competition that showcases the best dance crews from around Australia. What started in 2006 at The Riverside Theatre - Parramatta, has now become one of Australia's biggest and most anticipated hip hop dance competition of the year. The competition provides a competitive platform for passionate dance crews to showcase their ability and style in a 6 to 8 member dance crew where a panel of 6 judges determines which crew walks away with the prizes, trophy and the bragging rights!
In our inaugural event, previous Looze Control has set the bench mark on what it takes to be titled Looze Control's Best Dance Crew. It has now gone on becoming one of Australia biggest annual dance competition on the calendar, providing spectacular performances by international dance crews, judges, dance workshops and YouTube performances all staged in some of Sydney’s best venues.
Looze Control will continue its promise to increase its level of competitiveness by:
- Introducing a High School division to increase more students to take participate

- Take the dancers journey to new and higher experiences
- Attract major sponsors who not only see's the potential in the sport but believes in developing the growth for the dance genre with special attention to attracting more youths to get on the dance floor.
Looze Control breaks away from other dance competitions as being the first and only dance competition capable of featuring showcases from international dance crews as seen on “MTV’s Americas Best Dance Crew” season one winners the Jabbawockeez, third place winners Kaba Modern, season two winners Super Crew, season five winners Poreotics, Brian Puspos with the Architeks and Victor Kim, Mike Song and Anthony Lee as Yomama Crew. In addition, we have been the first to have special performances from YouTube sensations Traphik, Jreyez, Joseph Vincent and JR Aquino.
Furthermore to our achievement, Looze Control is proud to have made the following accomplishments in improving the dance scene in Australia:

Going on to hold the following competitions at other great venues such as Panthers Exhibition Pavillion, The Forum, The Whitlam Centre, Sydney Town Hall and Sydney Exhibition Centre.
