CAPE TOWN'S MOST WANTED Back for Seventh Edition; Gauteng Gears Up for JOBURG'S MOST WANTED
CAPE TOWN'S MOST
WANTED is happening for the seventh time at Artscape in June this year. Already a hip-hop highlight in the Cape Town calendar, the annual event is an insane time when the mood runs high and all the best of Cape Town's street dancers can be found giving their all for three performances on the Artscape stage. Now, for the first time, Johannesburg dancers are rising to the occasion and staking their claim with their own show, collecting JOBURG'S MOST WANTED on stage for one night at the end of March.
Johannesburg audiences are sure to be amazed and inspired as they discover groups they did not know existed. At the Cape Town event, people have crowded inside the theatre to see the newest moves, the grooviest grooves and discover who the "new kids on the block" are. Nobody holds back and everything explodes in an evening of doing what everyone does best. The MOST WANTED shows are not a competition, but a celebration with different styles coming together in a mind-blowing dance party.
For JOBURG'S MOST WANTED, all the best dancers from across Gauteng will come together to deliver an unforgettable evening of hot skills and dynamic talent. Only the best of the best are selected to perform in this line up of various street dance styles, including hip-hop, breaking, pantsula, wacking, sbujwa, krumping, popping and more, guaranteeing an evening of excellence - all in one show on one stage
JOBURG'S MOST WANTED promises to be a dynamic, vibrant dance show pumped full of variety and, most importantly, a platform for all street dance styles, so dancers get to be found, seen and admired. For the public, it unleashes on them dancers and crews with hidden talent, unknown skills, unseen creativity and refreshing originality. The show aims to bring you the best and be a platform to expose the unacknowledged. Besides being a fantastic show, it gives the dancers an opportunity to build their support and promote their studio, their crew or their creative team to a wider audience in a professional venue.
Audience members will play an essential part in this as a percentage of each ticket sold goes to the dancers themselves, with audience members able to allocate which dancer or crew should get that portion of their ticket. Everyone spends time in the foyer before the show indicating to whom their contribution from the sale of the ticket should go. This way crews can raise money by getting large groups of the audience to nominate them for their support.
Catch a total of 210 dancers from crews such as Creed, Freeze Frame, A.I, Dance Web Studios, Mario Gomez Dance Academy, Redemption, Supreme I Cru, Real Actions Pantsula, Dye-Namic, Pyro Techniks many more on stage in JOBURG'S MOST WANTED, on 31 March at the Lindner Auditorium.
