The international dance competition Red Bull Dance Your Style is bringing its search for the best street dancers to the UK in an exciting format where the crowd hold the ultimate power over who wins. Hosting over 65 events in more than 30 countries, the competition will hold two regional qualifiers in Newcastle and Cardiff, ahead of a national final in London. The winner will go on to represent the UK at the World Finals in Paris in October.
Celebrating street dance and its culture, the competition aims to bring people together for an all-style solo battle open to dancers from any street discipline, including breaking, popping, hip-hop, locking and house. Most importantly, contestants will have to be ready to drop down and perform their best moves as the DJs spin randomly selected genres from funk to pop, rap to garage and old school to current hits, testing everyone’s ability to adapt their individual styles.
Unlike most street dance competitions being judged by a panel, Red Bull Dance Your Style leaves the judging in the hands of the crowd. This exhilarating concept gives contestants the freedom to express as much personality and character as possible, all to try and win over the audience.
Ahead of the UK Final on 14th July in London, two regional qualifiers will take place on the following dates and at the following locations. Four winners from each event will join 8 invited wildcards in London:
- Digital Newcastle – 15th June, 2pm-5pm
- Y Plas Cardiff – 22nd June, 2pm-5pm
Tickets for the regional events are free but attendees must RSVP here to secure their place: redbull.co.uk/danceyourstyle
