Youngsters aged 11 to 25 who are part of dance companies or breaking crews can take part in the City of Joondalup’s first dance battle competition for 2 v 2 battles and crew performances for four to 10 people.

There will also be a performance by Cultural Renegades.

“It’s been very pleasing to see how young people involved in the City’s Freestyle Edge dance program have taken ownership of this event, getting involved in various aspects of its delivery,” Mayor Albert Jacob said.

“As well as contributing their ideas on the event name, marketing collateral, prizes, format of proceedings and the like, some have volunteered their time to help out on the night itself.”

The Break Thru All Styles Dance Battle will be fully supervised and drug, alcohol and smoke-free.

The City secured a $5000 Youth Engagement Grant from the Department of Communities to host the dance competition.

Entry is free. Call 9400 4223.
