Dear DnB Step Community!
The Drum and Bass Step family is growing and so is the interest and number of talented and passionate dancers who express their love for drum and bass music with certain moves. This calls for a get-together and a contest! Just as our Czech pioneers have already arrange it, it would be also nice to meet in Germany as a stepper to dance together and have an exchange.
Firstly, there will be the possibility to apply with a dance video, which will be voted by the community. Depending on the resonance, you will receive an official invitation to the contest in Hanover – Germany. All further information to the contest and the conditions of the participation.
The contest takes place in three categories: Beginner, Advanced and Professional.
The opponents will be drawn on the spot. In the categories, 8 steppers will compete against each other. The jury will give you honest feedback and decide who of you will get into the next round. The contest runs in a knockout system and will be accompanied by a DJ who will give you the opportunity to show your skills for 20 seconds.
Each pairing is randomly assigned a track.
Each category has one winner, so the entire tournament has 3 winners who will be rewarded with great prizes.
The winner of the Pro category has to keep his title as “Best DnB Stepper in Germany” and defend it in the following year. Nevertheless, there will also be other exciting prizes to be announced. The award ceremony will take place on Saturday at midnight.
Afterwards there will be an extensive celebration. The line-up will follow shortly.
The registration fee for participants of the contest is 10 euros.
The entrance fee for the contest is 6 euro for spectators (pre-sale) and 8 euros at the entrance.
There will also be a combination ticket for the contest and the after-party. Ticket sales will start soon.
In order to participate in the contest, you must apply in advance with a dance video. Your dance videos should have a length of at least 20 to 40 seconds. You should film from the side and your whole body. You can choose the track by yourself. Effects on the dance videos are not allowed. The videos are to be uploaded until 1th of October 2019 by stating the category. You have the possibility to register for one of the three categories (beginner, advanced, pro). The videos will be checked and put online. If your own self-assessment is wrong, we will intervene to keep the contest fair.
THE REGISTRATIONS FOR THE YEAR 2019 CLOSED NOW.
There will be an international jury with well known, talented steppers from Germany, Russia, Czech Republic and Hungary. The members of the jury will be announced soon.
You also have the possibility to perform a choreography as a team on stage. If you are interested, please contact us via e-mail.
We are ONE family! Of course you will be in a competition but the fun of dancing is still a priority. Treat yourselves well because we all share the same passion and want the tournament to be fair. Look forward to new contacts, new dance styles and to teaching one for the other something or learning something yourself.
