Every street dancer have dreams of competing. But competing under the banner of your own country is something that all street dancers would love to do. Dance@Live is a competition that is held all over Japan in a span of several months. It’s a knockout battle to see which dancer have the best technique and skill set to be proclaimed the best! This is an event that is very popular among all street dancers all over the world and a lot of people come each year to see the cream of the crop battle it out on the floor.
The presentation of this event was made by Steez with the help of Anomaly Inc. and MAS. This event has two major division titles that is waiting for their title holders for both for FREESTYLE and BREAK divisions. With International judges from Osaka and Tokyo, DANCE@LIVE is a gathering that top street dancing competitors of Australia would never dare miss.
The competition runs on a 45 second showcase on their moves on the red hot dance floor. In the elimination round the competition heat up as dancers start in two circles each having their own respective turns to convince judges they should pass that round. Freestylers go 1st followed by the mind boggling stunts and tricks by the bboys and bgirls. After the eliminations round, the quarterfinals, semis and finals are done in a head to head battle between those who passed elimination. It is there that things really start to scorch up as the dancers own the stage, eating up their competition and slowly cutting off the number of competitors one by one where only the best survive.
