We will begin accepting submissions for the online dance competition on August 6th. The deadline to submit your video entry is August 20th, 2021 at 11:59 PM Central Standard Time. The winner will be announced on August 27th. Restrictions are as follows:

  • Soloists and groups will sign up with the same form. However, all dancers are only allowed to participate in one performance – you can’t sign up for both a solo and team performance.


  • Only one submission. What you submit is what will be judged.


  • No more than two people per group. If a group of two is selected as the winner, the prize money and tickets will be split amongst the group.

Please submit your video entry and registration form in the same email. When submitting, please label your video file with your name for clear identification, such as:

Please submit your video in as high quality as possible, preferably in MP4 format. We also encourage all competitors to submit videos that are filmed horizontally, or “landscape”, instead of a vertical fashion if you are filming with your phone.

We will NOT be accepting video submissions through other file sharing services or social media.

Time limits and restrictions:


  • Song Title: “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” by Natalie J (featuring Mod G and J Torah)


  • All performances should only be choreographed to the rap section of the song. (We will not accept choreography from any other part of the song)

- Time stamp for beginning of choreography: 2:18
- Time stamp for end of choreography: 2:46



  • Only ORIGINAL dance routines and choreography may be used – we will not tolerate plagiarism. An intentional or blatant copy of a pre-existing choreography, with proof, will result in immediate disqualification.


  • Malicious, lewd, or profane content or behavior in any part of a performer’s dance is not allowed under any circumstances.


Competition Format

Competition Style:  There is no preference between choreography or freestyle – you have full creative freedom to submit a rehearsed or a freestyle dance. Make it look good, and make it work with the music.

Judging:  All submissions will be judged on a scale of 1-10, based on the following:

Execution:  How clean and polished do your moves look?

Originality:  How unique is your dance, does it look fresh and non-repetitive?


Musicality:  How well does your dance match the music selection?


Dynamics:  How dynamic and/or exciting is your dance?


Showmanship:  How does your dance appeal to the audience/judges?
