Interest in street-dancing has increased fifty-fold during the past few years, not least because of mainstream prime-time talent-shows on TV. Both Diversity (winners from Britain's Got Talent) and Flawless (finalists from the same show) have helped captivate the young and not-so-young with gymnastic rhythm and elastic limbs. After watching a short routine by either troupe, you begin to regret all those fry-ups, pub-sessions and all-you-can-cram-into-a-doggy-bag Mongolianj buffets and yearn to be slim, trim and fitter than them.
In order to get your first foot on the dancing-ladder, you need self-discipline. Then you need a great teacher and a place to practice, much of which is provided by Youth Dance England. One of the patrons of the organisation is Serious About StreetDance and Superbad founder, Kymberlee Jay, a UK-based Nike Athlete and trainer with 20 years experience.
Not surprisingly, Jay has been busy building the StreetDance brand by holding showcases across London, the most recent of which was in March 2012. Now she and Superbad are giving you the chance to attend the Serious About StreetDance Championships at the IndigO2 on 23rd September. Better still - you can enter and dance yourself (or your crew) to cash and the 1st prizes! Head to www.seriousaboutstreetdance.com for further details - you'll need £20 to enter and you can be any age.
Meanwhile, if you just want to watch the competitors in action, pick up tickets for the Championship event from us for £18, available now.
