Dance Touring Partnership launches the second digital dance competition with acclaimed dance artists Nobulus
Dance Touring Partnership and Austrian dance theatre sensation Nobulus are challenging solo dancers and dance groups to create and film a one minute dance video in front of an iconic landmark in Brighton. Entrants can upload their clips to the Dance Your City Facebook page to compete for the chance to perform at the climax of Nobulus’ Out of the Shadow UK tour at the Nottingham Playhouse.
The show, which calls into Brighton Dome on Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 October, is an extraordinary mix of breaking, popping and locking, contemporary dance, acrobatics and ballet set to an epic soundtrack that blends classical music with urban dance.
The first stage of the Dance Your City 2 competition is a public online vote via Facebook to select the top five entries; these dancers will then perform in the live final in Nottingham on 17 November in front of a public audience and a panel of street dance experts, including Kenrick from professional hip-hop dance group Boy Blue Entertainment, and Rebekah Roberts, Artistic Director of the winning crew from last year’s competition.
'Being on the panel of judges will allow me to observe what else is going on in and around the UK Hip Hop scene. 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.'

The successful crew will perform their winning entry as a curtain raiser to the urban dance theatre show on Monday 18 November.
