The preseason of 2021 CBC was completed in September. A total of 294 outstanding street dancers from eight regions, namely Guangxi autonomous region, Shaanxi province, Fujian province, Yunnan province, Sichuan province, Shandong province, Chongqing city, and Hubei province, participated in the online competition. Teams from the eight competition regions formally announced through offline press conferences that they would establish a city team to represent each region. Each team consists of five main players who will lead their teams to participate in the upcoming playoffs in November and the finals in December.
The regular season was divided into a northern division and a southern division and was held during the China National Day holidays. Four teams representing Guangxi autonomous region, Yunnan province, Fujian province and Hubei province competed in the southern division and four teams representing Sichuan province, Chongqing city, Shaanxi province and Shandong province competed in the northern division.
The regular season for the southern divison competition was held in Nanning city of the Guangxi autonomous region from October 1st to October 3rd, and the northern divison competition was held in Xi’an city of Shaanxi province from October 5th to October 7th.
