This highly-anticipated dance contest boasts nine categories of dance suited to every style with prizes for the top dancer in each category ranging from R500 to R2 500. All those who reach the finals will receive participation certificates, as well as a complementary cup of hot chocolate.
The age groups entered include Junior (6 to 8 years or 9 to 11 years), Teen (12 to 14 years) and Senior (15 to 19 years or 20 years and above). Dancers can perform solo; as a duo, trio or quartet; or in a group of five or more participants.
We received an overwhelming amount of applications (over 150 sessions) for our auditions round and had to setup an additional audition date to let all dancers compete.
This year’s categories include:
• Hip hop
