One-on-one all styles street dance competition, Red Bull Dance Your Style, returns with a full 2020 calendar and full-fledged tour before heading to Johannesburg, South Africa, for the World Finals.

The dance competition brings together the best artists in the U.S. across hip hop, popping, waacking, locking, krumping, house and flexing to celebrate freedom of expression through dance and provide the street dancers a new platform to showcase their individuality and creativity.

Riding on the heels of an explosive 2019 season, Dance Your Style will be bringing out a whole new squad of talented dancers for its second year. The same rules apply with the audience deciding which dancer will advance from each qualifier to the National Finals Weekend taking place in Washington, D.C., over the course of three days from April 23-25. 

Several wildcard dancers will be heading straight toward the last chance qualifier round the evening before the National Finals in D.C. on April 24, including popper and hip hop extraordinaire Angyil; hip hop and jookin professional Sheopatra; popper and waacking showstopper Lily; a master across many styles, Lil O, most recently featured in Lil Uzi Vert’s video for his most recent hit single “Futsal Shuffle” (hip hop, house, popping and locking); and straight from his onstage Grammy’s performance with Tyler, The Creator, krumper Outrage. Without a panel of judges, planned choreography or pre-selected music, Dance Your Style truly presents a no-holds-barred competition allowing the dancers to fully embrace the moment, optimize the spotlight and wow the crowd.

Red Bull Dance Your Style qualifiers will kick off on March 13, in New Orleans, at Republic NOLA, continue to Denver, with the date and venue information coming shortly, move to Boston on April 10, at Liberty Hall at Revere Hotel Boston, and finally conclude in Houston, also with the date and venue information coming shortly. The U.S. National Dance Your Style Finals will span a full weekend this year and include workshops, artist performances and the last chance qualifier, with all of the action being held from April 23-25, with events taking place across D.C. at the Culture House, The Showroom and Howard Theatre. 

Winners from each qualifier will move on to the Red Bull Dance Your Style U.S. National Final in Washington D.C., in April, and finalists from there will advance to the Red Bull Dance Your Style World Final taking place in Johannesburg, South Africa, on October 17.

Red Bull Dance Your Style will host 80 events in 39 countries all over the world. The ultimate global street dance battle will bring together the most exceptional talent from across the world to compete at the second annual World Final. Johannesburg is not only South Africa’s biggest city, but it is the cultural epicenter of the country. The ever-growing metropolis is the vibrant heart of South Africa making it the perfect intersection for dancers from around the world.
