Back for another triumphant year, global street dance competition Red Bull dance your style will make its Chicago debut on Friday, September 24 in the nearly 130-year-old Chicago landmark, Thalia Room.
Bringing together the best of hip-hop, house, waacking, popping, krumping, locking and more, Red Bull Dance Your Style will celebrate the local dance scene and the artists, movers and creators who shape the legacy of Chicago in street dancing.
The best street dancers in the region will compete, via a parenthesis-style tournament, performing to a spontaneous soundtrack. An audience of dance enthusiasts will act as judges, ultimately deciding which dancer will advance from each qualifier to the Red Bull Dance Your Style National
USA Finals taking place Friday, October 22 through Saturday, October 23 in Washington DC With no judging, no planned choreography, and no pre-chosen music, it’s all about seizing the moment, impressing the crowd, and moving to the beat.
With the creation of Detroit footwork and jit, the area made an indelible contribution to street dancing. Celebrating the city’s impact on the scene and the local artists pushing street dance forward, competitors include the self-proclaimed Queen of Jit, Queen Gaby and the Chicago one Nero.
The evening will be hosted by BRAVEMOINEmember of the legendary and internationally recognized breaking crew Phaze II Crosstown Crew of Chicago, and DJ based in Chicago, King Mary, will provide a spontaneous soundtrack of mainstream hits to timeless classics for the night. The public will enjoy a special presentation by the local footwork team, the era and the dance team, The Drumline & Dance Crew Bundle.
The Red Bull Dance Your Style Chicago Qualifier is open to the public with doors opening at 7 p.m. ET. Tickets are available for purchase here. For those unable to attend, the qualifier will be available to watch AND VOTE via the official live stream partner Caffeine.
