It is abundantly clear that the definition of a battle is needed.

A battle (in hip-hop)- is when two (or it can be more) opponents, either MC's, DJs or dancers, go against one another to determine who is the best (or better of the two).

Battles can happen spontaneously in a cypher, they can be planned, or they can occur for an event (a tournement style event).

ESPECIALLY in dance, there are rules to battling like, no touching, no biting (copying moves), and there shouldnt be routines (unless otherwise specified).

The topic of fantasy battles (like celebrity vs. celebrity) should never really be discussed only because no one really knows what the two can bring to the table (and the fact that most of their dancing is choreographed, you can only really decide on who is the better of the two at following choreography). In theend it is pointless and mere opinion on who would win.

One last note- particularly in dance battles... when it's supposed to be a popping battle, you should be POPPING... no bboying, no party dancing...etc... It goes the same for any other type of battle... mixing of styles should not take place.

Any one else feel free to add any comments.
