How it Works

  • 1-on-1 battle where each dancer will be challenged to dance to the unpredictable, varied beats/music of a live DJ
  • The music genre will change for each dancer and can range from any genre of music such as rap, pop, break beats, funk, electronica, house music, etc...
  • Each round will consist of 2 solo dancers who will battle one another facing each other
  • During the preliminary round, the DJ will play one song for each of the 2 dancers.
  • Each dancer in the preliminary round will have the opportunity to dance for ~45 seconds
  • There will be 32 open slots for this battle for the dancers to sign-up for (16 battles in the first round). A qualifying round may become necessary, if there are more than 32 people to sign up in which each dancer will have 30 seconds to showcase to earn a spot on of the 32 allowed spots.
  • Judges will choose 1 dancer from each round to advance to the next round until the battle progresses to 4 final dancers.
  • The final 4 dancers will have 2 songs each of their choice to impress the judges
  • Each dancer will be judged on his/her ARTISTIC CREATIVITY, his/her MUSICALITY, and his/her ABILITY to ENTERTAIN the JUDGES & CROWD
  • The judges will then decide 1st - 4th place. One Judge will come up to host and help announce all placements, skipping 2nd place an awarding 1st therefore letting 2nd know who they are through process of elimination.
