The world’s best street dancers will come together this spring for the return of premiere one-on-one street dance competition Red Bull Dance Your Style. For its 2022 season, Red Bull Dance Your Style will amplify dance scenes from all corners of the country, traveling to Tampa, Chicago, Washington D.C., Oakland, Atlanta and New Orleans to celebrate the diverse dance community and determine who will go on to represent the country at the World Final.
Kicking off on April 7 from the iconic House of Blues in Boston, the all-styles dance competition will summon the region’s best dancers ranging across hip hop, house, waacking, turfing, krumping, popping and everything in between.
Via bracket style tournament, dancers will battle one-on-one to a spontaneous music set of randomly selected genres while the audience votes to determine who advances onto the next round. With no panel of judges, no planned choreography and no pre-chosen music, it’s all about embracing the moment, wowing the crowd and moving to the beat.
Winner of the 2021 U.S. Red Bull Dance Your Style National Final, Angyil explains that “while it is a competition, Red Bull Dance Your Style is, at its core, a celebration of dance, that gives artists a global stage to express their true selves and expose audiences to new styles of dance.”
The U.S. competition circuit will close with the National Finals USA in New Orleans, spanning a full weekend from May 21 through May 22. Creating a platform for education, connection and celebration, the weekend will offer a line-up of dance programming including select events, workshops and performances with scenes from across the country. The weekend will conclude with the final dance battle, giving regional winners a final shot at advancing onto the World Finals, by battling wildcards including Lily Frias, Nick Fury, Tyler D Creator and Toyin.
Following 130 events in over 30 countries all around the globe, dance’s heavy-hitters will come together to battle for the third-ever Red Bull Dance Your Style World Championship title.
