step-up

“to the beat”

Dance competition

OVERVIEW

DFA Students have to create a 60-90 sec original choreography (solo or duet) on any Bollywood song using any of the Bollywood fusion styles. Once the choreography and audio is set, you can professionally record and edit the video as long as it doesn’t compromise the choreography and dance (costume, make-up and hair is highly recommended based on your performance). Once you submit it in, your piece will be judged with others that are in your age category. On May 15th, we will showcase each participant’s video with their age category and announce the winners at the end of the competition.
