Hello everyone! I do know that a lot of youngsters nowadays are actually into dancing. In fact, I do find it very cool to dance as well. Especially after all the K-POP Heat, it's more common to see teenagers getting into dancing.
Sadly, till today I've not really participated in any dancing classes although I have interest in it. But I do know that a lot of you dancers out there are trying to find a platform, a stage which belongs to you and your group, to show the audience what you can really do on stage!
This is YOUR chance NOW young dancers out there! Gatsby is organising their 4th Dance Competition! This time round they are back for more to search for Asia's No. 1 student dancer! This is definitely the time for you all to shine on stage! Not only are the prizes and stage a big deal! Even the judges are enough to blow the minds of ours away!
This time round, Japan's well known and professional dancers, Charisma Kantaro and FISHBOY are both guest judges for this competition! So, even if you didn't make it into the finals, the comments and feedbacks given back by both judges should be very valuable as well! Worth the experience!
