This Friday, March 13, the national dance competition from Red Bull returns to Republic NOLA! The event at Republic officially kicks off the 2020 competition. Other stops include Denver, Boston, and Houston.
16 dancers from the Southern region including 3 from NOLA will compete for a spot in the “Dance Your Style” National Finals in Washington, D.C. later this year. Those from New Orleans competing in the competition includes Omari “Neutron” Dillard, Ashley “Sheik” Nguyen, and Nick Fury. Dillard is a member of the Pelicans hype team, whereas Nguyen and Fury have competed in the competition in previous years.
What can you expect if you attend? Lots of one-on-one dance offs between the dancers! Instead of a panel of judges, the audience is the judge! You can help determine the winner of each round by attending.
The Dance Your Style competition begins at 7pm at Republic NOLA located at 828 St. Peters Street.
