Summer Dance Forever: Urban Dance FestivalFestivals / Amsterdam
August 21-28, Various
Watch street dancers, breakers and all sorts of fusions of contemporary urban dance styles during the Summer Dance Forever festival in venues around Amsterdam!
Battles, classes & workshops
For one week Amsterdam will become the centre of the urban dance world.
At the heart of the festival are a series of dance battles where crews and individuals take the stage in a competition that is judged by a panel of experts. Relying on showmanship, flare and of course athletic ability, these dance battles are a thrilling look into the evolution of urban dance as the performers must creatively one-up each other and their competition.
The styles will be mainly popping, breaking, house-dance and hip-hop with the winner receiving 500 euros! Along with the battles, the week will also be highly educational with a variety of workshops taking place, ranging from jazz-fusion and popping to hip-hop and dancehall.
Supplementing this already complete programme are a series of master-classes that focus on the finer points of choreography, refining dancehall moves and what to break out in battle style scenarios!
