Formerly part of Yfest (Esplanade’s festival for youth), Sixteen da:ns 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 popping extraordinaires, Poppin J and Popkun (Korea), O.G lockers Khan and Moon (Korea), and Vio and Dorocy of award-winning Korean dance crew Team Magnolia, who bring to the table their unique style of hip hop. Each pair will select dancers to form three crews to work with them over the course of the programme.
Selected dancers will be mentored by the guest choreographers over 16 hours of rehearsals (four hours over four consecutive days), which will culminate in a performance at da:ns festival’s What’s Your Move? stage on 21 Oct 2017, Sat.
If you love street dance, don’t miss this final showcase featuring electrifying performances by the guest choreographers and their local crews. Expect a night of fantastic choreography and thrilling dance moves.
