Up until this point “Finals International Dance Competition“ has grown to a mature brand. 2018 will be the 7th year of greatness in a row. Keeping this concept long-running it´s mandatory to reinvent yourself over and over again. In 2018 we are trying something big for you! We will be hosting two shows: one for our adults and another one just for our junior competitors.
But why? ‘German Dance Art’ founded “Finals“ as a platform to give urban-dance-styles a stage that they deserve. We created an exceptional atmosphere for our art form and it quickly turned into a huge success. Probably because it was missing the platform that other art forms already have, e.g. acting in theaters and paintings in galleries.
We are hosting a second show just to make the show available to everybody again because we were sold out way too quickly during the last years.
What can you expect from 2018? We still have our grand prize money, an international selection of judges and we expect even more than the 1800 people from all over Europe who where part of our amazing 2017 event.
What is FINALS 2018
18 adult/Juniors teams which will have travelled from various European countries, will perform on this day as part of the category ‘Pros’ a 4 to 6 minute dance routine according to their own choreography and choice of music. The five-strong jury, comprising of internationally renowned proven professionals in the world of dance will have the task of assessing and grading the performances. Eventually after all the judging and ceremonial festivities the winning and qualitatively best team will be allowed to present their ‘THE ONE FINAL PERFORMANCE’. The prize money is 2018 EUROs for the professionals and 518 EUROs for the juniors. As soon as the winning team has been determined there will be an award ceremony. The photograph from this ceremony of the presentation to the winning team will make up the cover of the flyer for the following year.
The Competition Concept
The participating groups/teams will consist of a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 35 dancers. The minimum age for the juniors will be 7 years and for the category ‘Pros’ will be 16 years. The props, outfits and choice of music will be selected by the choreographers of each team in order to promote the creativeness of the performance and in no way restrict the flare factor. The entry registration fee is 15 EURO per dancer. The deadline date for registration is 31st January 2018.
How to participate
