Formerly part of Yfest (Esplanade’s festival for youth), Sixteen Dance Challenge has found a new home in da:ns festival. The platform provides young street dancers the opportunity to learn from established international artists, develop fresh ideas and form new friendships through a series of workshops and rehearsals which culminate in a high energy showcase at da:ns festival.
Joining this year’s group of guest choreographers and dancers are renowned masters of locking, Hilty and Bosch from Japan, stars of the Korean street dance scene Honey J, Z.Sun, as well as Yoon and Chocol, who will bring a unique combination of house and hip hop. They will select dancers to form three crews, who will work with them over the course of the programme.
These selected dancers will be mentored by the guest choreographers for 16 hours of rehearsals (four days, four hours each day), culminating in a performance at da:ns festival’s What’s Your Move? stage on 15 Oct 2016, Sat. If you love street dance, come attend this final showcase performed by the guest choreographers and their local crews for a night of fantastic choreography and thrilling dance moves.
