Johannesburg, South Africa, 8 June 2021 – Johannesburg, South Africa, will host the best street dancers from around the globe on 04 December at the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Final. The world’s most electrifying dancers will hit the stage to compete for the title of Red Bull Dance Your Style world champion.

 

Red Bull Dance Your Style is a one-one street dance battle where dancers dance to unpredictable music hits performing any street dance style. Any street dance style discipline, such as sbujwa, amapiano, pantsula, hip-hop, popping, locking and more can enter. What makes the competition so unique is that the audience is the judge and decides who takes the crown in each battle.

In this distinctive competition format, the DJ and audience play a crucial role. The DJ is tasked with challenging the dancers of the different styles, who face each other on a red and blue side of the dancefloor, with unpredictable hits to see how versatile they are at adapting to the beat. The audience is the only judging panel and decide on the outcome of the battles by simply raising voting cards that are either red or blue in line with their favourite dancer.

South Africa’s road to the world final will begin in June with the Red Bull Dance Your Style country tour to search for the best dancers to represent the country at the world final. The tour audition stops and workshops will be taking place in Johannesburg, Polokwane, Durban, Gqeberha, Cape Town, and Pretoria culminating in the national final set to take place in October where South Africa’s champion will be crowned to represent South Africa at the world final. The country tour features South Africa’s hottest dance talent including Bontle Modiselle, Sne Mbatha, Rudi Smit, Tebza, Lee-Shane, Limpopo Boy, 250Machine and many more.
