Croatian dance group Atomic Dance Factory will this year compete at the most prestigious hip hop dance competition in the world, the "Hip Hop International World Championship 2012", when it is held in Las Vegas from 31 July to 5 August.
It is the first time Croatia has had a representative at the elite competition which features 250 groups from 40 countries. Only qualification winners and invitees are permitted to enter the Hip Hop International, and Atomic Dance Factory were given an official invitation by the organisers, recognising the work and effort of the Croatian dance group.
"This is the biggest recognition which we have ever got. It all started when we sent in some video material, which the jury rated. We didn't expect anything so its turned out better than good. For us success is just being at the competition," said Sasa Krnetic, leader and choreographer of the group. Tomislav Ivic, Tomislav Horvat, Luka Matic and Tomislav Zirdum make up the remaining members of Atomic Dance Factory, writes daily newspaper 24sata.
