One breakdancer says it's fitting that the competition is happening here in NYC.

"It's really dope that the Red Bull BC1 is in New York this year because New York is where hip hop was born. New York is where breaking started," said Logan "Logistx" Edra. "If it could be in New York every year, I'm all for that."

There will be 32 competitors.

You can watch the competition starting at 7 p.m. Saturday on ESPN+.
