Notable participants from TDDP included Bboy Kancha, known for his breaking style, Ayush – a versatile rapper, and Bboy dancer, as well as Vikram, a respected mentor and b-boy. The performance also featured the exceptional Bboy Mayur, TDDP’s youngest champion.
During the event, viewers also had the chance to learn about the origins and goals of TDDP through an interview hosted by Roposo creator Karan Parihar. This conversation involved TDDP’s visionary Co-Founder and the aspiring performers, providing deeper insights into TDDP’s impact and journey.
