Charlotte Auditions For Red Bull Dance Your Style Competition To Be Held Saturday

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Calling all Charlotte dancers! The Red Bull Dance Your Style competition will be holding auditions at The Music Yard on Saturday, April 9th.


The Red Bull Dance Your Style Charlotte Audition is an all ages event with free admission, with doors opening at 1 p.m. and the competition being held from 2 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Officials say all dancers will get two minutes to showcase their talents and will be judged on a scale of 1-5, with the top dancers advancing to compete in Atlanta on May 13th.

There will be five regional qualifiers across the U.S., which officials say will determine the dancers in the National Final in New Orleans, with the ultimate goal of then competing in the World Finals.

To earn a spot in a regional U.S. qualifier, officials say dancers must rise above their competition at an audition being held in cities across the country, including Charlotte on April 9th.

Red Bull officials say ” The 1on1, knockout battle tournament pits any and all styles against each other, whether it be poppers, lockers, hip-hop freestylers, house dancers, voguers, krumpers, or any of the other many styles represented in the competition.” Adding, “The dancers have no idea what songs the DJ will choose to spin for their battles. Poppers might have to hit to rock music and house dancers might have to groove to rap. It’s all about being ready to freestyle to whatever song the DJ drops.”
