FOR the first time ever, Red Bull Dance Your Style, the brand’s version of a global head-to-head street dance competition with a unique battle format featuring the latest hits and time-defying classics the freestyle and improvisational skills of a dancer, arrives in The Philippines.
Unlike other major dance competitions with professional judges, the crowd will play a crucial role in determining the winner of each battle. Crowd participation means the dancers will really need to express their personality and passion through their dancing. They will have to win over the crowd to outrun their opponents.
The first major Red Bull Dance Your Style Philippines event kicks off at the BGC Amphitheater with the National Finals on July 23, featuring the top 16 dancers qualified and shortlisted by nationally renowned dance consultant and member of the Philippine All-With Vince Mendoza. “The selection process was not easy and difficult too. Can you imagine gathering talented people and assessing their skills? It’s like a dream and also having this excitement during the selection process,” Mendoza shares when he is asked about the decision-making that presided over the choice of the country’s representatives.
All participants will gather in one place for an intense but fun dance battle to test their diversity of moves while proving they are the best dancers in the world.
Each round of each battle will consist of two thrilling rounds with the DJ mixing different genres ranging from modern pop and rap music to old school classics. Competitors will need to prove they have pace, movement, creativity and charisma, as capturing the crowd’s attention and earning their approval is the only way to secure a place in the next round of competition.
The winner of the national final will then move on to the world final and represent the Philippines, competing against more than 60 dancers from 30 countries. The global final is set to take place in Johannesburg, South Africa in December 2022.
