Frédéric Mitterrand, Minister of Culture and Communication, warmly congratulates the dancers of the R.A.F. Crew who have just won the gold medal of the 2009 Hiphop World Championships in Las Vegas (USA) where groups from 28 countries were competing.

Brice, François, Grishka, Marvin, Nicolas, Romuald have demonstrated the excellence of French hip hop dance and its international reach.
Frédéric Mitterrand would like to recall that the Ministry of Culture and Communication has always supported the dynamism, creativity and diversity of the hip hop scene. The first national meetings of urban dances at the Grande Halle de la Villette in 1997 gave hip hop access to a visibility that continued to spread on all stages and on all media.
