Red Bull Dance Your Style Cape Town Qualification Report

Red or blue? That was the key question that was asked on Saturday August 20, when Zoe ‘Fairy’ Aldridge won over the crowds on the Red Bull Dance Your Style Cape Town Qualifier tour in South Africa.

Hosted by the energizing and phenomenal Mel Rock, the amphitheater at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town was filled with excitement as the city’s street dancers turned out in droves to try for that ultimate title.

After many difficult parts with a variety of music carefully selected by Courtnaé Paul on the decks; on the blue side and dressed in all blue, free-styler Zoe ‘Fairy’ Aldridge skillfully showed off her best moves which ultimately won the crowd over, inducting her with the title of best street dancer to represent Cape Town at Red Bull Dance Your National Style Finals will take place in October in Pretoria.

“Dancing is my way of communicating so I really had the chance to express myself and I was able to exchange and express myself with certain opponents. I can’t even imagine what just happened, it’s really cool to know that the training is paying off, it shows that I’m on the right track and I can’t wait to improve even more, ”said Aldridge.

This year, for the first time since this global Red Bull Dance Your Style street dance competition was held in South Africa, three women have been crowned winners from the regional tours so far.

Fairy commented on what this female portrayal means to her: “We come to kill; I’m so excited because that’s all I want for the woman in the dance fight space to really grow as well as the freestyle scene in general. I think it’s very easy for a woman to feel inferior, but actually, we’re just as powerful and we bring different attributes.

There is still one stop on this regional tour before the announcement of the South African winner. Fairy comments on what this national stage means to her – “Knowing that there are equally strong and dynamic women who have entered it and killed it makes me proud. I can’t wait to see them in the national final to exchange with them because I know that I will learn just as much.
