Get ready to battle!
Red Bull Dance Your Style, a showcase of electrifying moves and unbeatable talent, is set to make its much-awaited return to Jamaica for the fourth national final.
Scheduled for Half-Way-Tree Transport Centre on Saturday September 2, 2023, the free event to the public with kick off at 7:00 pm.
This year’s Dance Your Style champion will take the global stage representing the country at the 2023 Red Bull Dance Your Style World Final set to be hosted by Frankfurt, Germany, on November 4 with representative from some 30 countries.
Red Bull Dance Your Style features a unique battle format and has become a platform for street dancers of all styles – from hip-hop to house, popping, locking and more.
Dancers are challenged with unpredictable music hits across all genres and are crowned by crowd voting. Competitors must conquer the audience as they are ultimately deciding who will rule the dance floor.
Dancehall is still a relatively new format and genre in the competition, making Jamaica’s overall involvement an impactful and inclusive addition, adding further diversity to the global event.
The event promises to be a night of high-energy showdowns, hosted by world renowned Jamaican choreographer Latonya Style.
Sixteen dancers will battle head to head for the title of Dance Your Style Champion.
The competition debuted in Jamaica in 2019 and since then has seen three champions; namely, Pancho Cautiion (2019), Flexx Cautiion (2021), and Joel Immortal (2022).
Reigning champion Joel Immortal expressed his excitement about the upcoming event.
“I feel very excited about the return of Red Bull Dance Your Style. I believe this is a great event for our local dancers to showcase their talent. Dance Your Style opens many gates and creates many opportunities for our dancers. Since winning the competition many windows have opened for me. I have been getting many bookings, teaching classes across the globe in countries like Russia, France, and Spain. I have also had the opportunity to meet so many people and see so many dance cultures. I definitely think an opportunity like this helps to put dancehall on the map… and gives dancers the exposure and valuable opportunities they need,” he said.
