Starting this year, we will have two competitions: our traditional “Battle” for couples on Saturday night party and a solo competition on Sunday afternoon party. Feeling inspired? Take up the challenge!
This year our traditional “Battle” will be a J&J Battle (Jacqueline being a woman and Jim a man of course :-p). Four leaders and four followers will be picked out by a jury and will battle each other Saturday night.
Prelims will take place during the Saturday afternoon party at the Bourse at 16:30. There will be an open jam where anyone can join in to show off their moves. No rules, don’t hold back, just show what you got. Four leaders and four followers will be carefully picked out by the judges.
The competition will take place during the Saturday night party, at 23:15. We will first mix and match the couples, before starting the competition. We will then host 4 battles: two semi-final battles, one battle for the third place and one battle for the final. For each battle, two couples will fight on the same song, by dancing each on 8 times 8 counts. The public and/or a jury will then vote on the winners. Six prices will be given to the 3 first couples.
This year we are pleased to introduce for the first time a solo competition. Four dancers will be picked out by a jury and will be able to participate to the final on Sunday.
Prelims will take place right before the competition, during the Sunday afternoon party at 15:15. Prelims rules will be explained at that time. Four dancers will be carefully picked out by the judges.
The competition will take place during the Sunday afternoon party, at 15:25. Quite simple rules: dancers will dance solo on a few tunes and a jury will then vote on the winners. Three prices will be given to the three best dancers.
This year, two tickets for five topnotch international Lindy Hop events will be distributed.
