Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their Elders past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

Pass the Buck serves as a platform for the new wave of Krumpers within their community to shine, with each iteration bringing something new every year.

This year, Pass The Buck is taking Krump back to its roots – before the tournaments took over the limelight.

We’ve curated battle line ups similar to The Realm, Cage events, and other Krump events in Los Angeles that the community have grown up with and have been inspired by. Inviting a selection of the best and unique dancers across our part of the world.

Pass The Buck 6 includes artists across Australia and New Zealand. The intention of Pass The Buck this year is for everyone attending to be immersed in the energy that this dance form brings. The way Krump perceives ‘battling’ is different to most street dance forms/culture and Pass The Buck is a rare opportunity to understand its context.
