Finally, it looks like we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of this terrible pandemic, and our favorite cultural events are once again making an appearance.
Red Bull Dance Your Style, the premier one-on-one street dance competition, is back in the ring with its 2022 season, amplifying dance scenes from all corners of the country.
As announced by event organizers in a press release, cities including Tampa, Chicago, Washington D.C., Oakland, Atlanta, and New Orleans will celebrate the diversity of the dance community in the new edition of the competition.
Kicking off Thursday, April 7, at Boston’s iconic House of Blues, the all-styles dance competition will bring together the region’s best dancers in the realms of hip-hop, house, waacking, turfing, krumping, popping, and everything in between.
Through a tableau-style tournament, dancers will go one-on-one with a spontaneous musical set from randomly selected genres while the audience votes to determine who moves on to the next round. With no panel of judges, no planned choreography, and no music chosen in advance, it’s all about seizing the moment, wowing the audience, and moving to the music.
The U.S. competition circuit will close with the Red Bull Dance Your Style USA National Finals in New Orleans, which will span a full weekend from Saturday, May 21, through Sunday, May 22.
Creating a platform for education, connection, and celebration, the weekend will feature dance programming, including select events, workshops, and performances with scenes from across the country. The weekend will conclude with the final dance battle, which will give regional winners one last chance to move on to the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Finals, battling wildcards such as Lily Frias, Nick Fury, Tyler D Creator, and Toyin.
