Red Bull Dance Your Style is launching its first three-month US tour, bringing street-dancing competition to performers across the country. Kicking off June 15th in Honolulu, dancers will showcase a variety of styles before a judging audience for the chance to advance to the USA National Final in Las Vegas and the first World Final in Paris, France.
Spanning across three months of events, the Red Bull Dance Your Style qualifiers will continue on to Washington D.C. on July 20th at the Howard Theatre, Miami on July 27th at Story, Boston on August 2nd at the House of Blues, New Orleans on August 3rd at Generations Hall before wrapping up with two last events: a Los Angeles qualifier on August 10th and the US National Dance Your Style Final in Las Vegas in September.
The competition concept
Red Bull Dance Your Style is a battle concept where the emphasis is on bringing people together in a celebration of dance, music and performance, and on recreating the social, party atmosphere and vibe that all the street-dance styles were derived from.
The Red Bull Dance Your Style competition itself is a mixed, all-style solo (one-on-one) battle, in which dancers from any street style discipline can enter. This open entry, all-styles format means that each battle is an exchange of the diverse and different number of styles that exist in street dance. Audiences get to see breaking, hip-hop, popping, house, locking and other street-dance styles. The dancers go head-to-head against one another, just like at parties back in the day.
In 2019 Dance Your Style will have more than 50 events in over 30 countries and will hold a World Final in Paris on October 12th, where all the winners come together to crown the first-ever Red Bull Dance Your Style World Champion.
