CREWS | 1vs1 BATTLES | SHOWCASES | WORKSHOPS & MASTERCLASSES

UDO is hosting its very first Asia-Pacific Street Dance Championships...

Will you be there?

 

We will be offering the following categories for CREWS: 

 

U14 Open

Any crews with dancers under the age of 14 will be invited to compete in this category, which will also amalgamate Beginner, Novice, Intermediate & Advanced competitors. This category will give our younger crews the opportunity to compete for prize money in an accessible, versatile environment, showcasing their street dance routines on the Asia-Pacific stage.

Maximum dance time 2:30 mins.

 

U18 Open

This category has been brought into place to combine the Beginner, Novice, Intermediate & Advanced division, to offer more variety in one category. By amalgamating these divisions, we can offer a more diverse, accessible, inclusive experience to competing crews. Not only that, crews in this category will all have the chance to win big prize money; we don’t want anyone to feel they’ve missed out!

Maximum dance time 2:30 mins. 

 

Over 18 Beginner / Novice

While catering for the needs of crews at the top of their game, we are also mindful that inclusivity is key to the success of our competitions. Over 18 Beginner/Novice invites crews who are just starting out, and gives these crews the chance to win impressive prizes. UDO believes in supporting dancers of all abilities, and this category will showcase the diversity of talent we encourage.

Maximum dance time 2:00 mins.

(by selecting Beginner or Novice during registration you will be placed in to this combined category) 

 

Ultimate Advanced

Here at the United Dance Organisation, we want to give all crews the opportunity to compete for the larger prizes; we are therefore thrilled to be hosting the ‘Ultimate Advanced’ category. The Ultimate Advanced is a brand-new category that will be introduced to the Asia-Pacific Championships. It will incorporate the O18 Advanced division, but will also invite crews of any age to compete for the top prize money! This allows teams of all ages the opportunity to compete against the best crews for the overall title of Ultimate Advanced Asia-Pacific Champion, as we believe that age should not inhibit a dancer who wants to push themselves to compete at the highest competition level.   

Maximum dance time 2:30 mins.

 

Battles

Over 16 - Hip hop

                Locking
