NuProjeks - Dance Your City 2012

Dance Touring Partnership’s Dance Your City is back for a second year, this time offering the chance to perform alongside urban dance company Nobulus in Nottingham this autumn.

Following the success of last year’s national online dance competition Dance Your City, dancers across the UK are invited to compete in Dance Your City 2 by entering a video here.

Five finalists will compete in Nottingham for the opportunity to appear onstage as a curtain-raiser to urban dance theatre show Out of the Shadow by Austrian company Nobulus.

Solo dancers and groups can enter by creating a one-minute dance video in front of an iconic landmark in your city, and uploading it to Dance Your City. The top five entries will be selected by public vote on Facebook. The top five will then compete at a live final in Nottingham on 17 November in front of a public audience and a panel of street dance experts.

Judge Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy of Boy Blue Entertainment, who judged the first Dance your City competition last year, says: “Dance Your City allows creative growth through technology and the long standing competitive nature of Hip Hop performers. With a final prize of performing on the prestigious Nottingham Playhouse stage we can expect the best to step to the mark.”

Last year’s competition was won by Nottingham crew NuProjeks. The city of this year’s winning crew’s will host the final of DYC3 in 2014.
